Atrial Fibrillation is a type of arrhythmia or the condition of an irregular heartbeat. When a person suffers from arrhythmia, his heartbeat is either too fast, too slow or with an irregular rhythm. With atrial fibrillation, the irregular heartbeat occurs when the heart’s two upper chambers receive chaotic electrical signals thus causing the so-called fibrillation or contraction.
Treatment: Treating a patient with atrial fibrillation starts with identifying the cause of the condition and this is a rather long process. It involves, at the most basic, an ECG (electrocardiogram), echocardiogram, complete blood count and other tests. To get the best results, state-of-the-art equipment and highly-trained physicians who specialize in Atrial Fibrillation should be consulted.
Although western countries have a long list of qualified doctors specializing in the treatment of Atrial Fibrillation, you have the option to go on medical travel to Southeast Asia where diagnosis and available treatments are at par in the west but are up to 50% cheaper.
Why Travel to Southeast Asia?: Some of the best diagnosticians happen to be in Southeast Asia. Most specialists in countries such as Thailand, Singapore, and South Korea have received their training in some of the most respectable medical institutions in the world thus, quality of care is guaranteed. Comprehensive medical care, which starts from diagnosis to treatment and management of this condition, is widely available at moment’s notice. This saves you from prolonged waiting times, which have become a problem in most western countries.
