Cardiac arrhythmia refers to a group of condition characterized by irregular heartbeat, with the heart beating either too slow (bradycardia) or too fast (tachycardia), affecting its function to pump sufficient blood to the lungs and the rest of the body. Arrhythmia can occur due to abnormal levels of potassium in the body, a damaged heart muscle, heart attack, enlargement of the heart, congenital heart disease, and overactive thyroid gland. Depending on the severity of the condition, arrhythmia can be treated through electrical “shock” therapy, catheter ablation, or implanting a pacemaker.
If you’re from Indonesia and seriously considering getting arrhythmia treatment abroad, one of your best options is traveling to Singapore. Cardiac arrhythmia is treated and managed in this country in the same way in the United States and Europe. However, traveling to Singapore allows you to save up to 70% of the cost. Even with associated costs such as accommodation, you can still save an enormous amount of money. Aside from saving on cost, other benefits of this option include receiving internationally accepted standards of medical care as the majority of cardiologists in Singapore have received education and extensive training from Western countries. You can find them at world-class medical facilities that are equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic and testing tools.
