Did you know there is such a thing as a prolonged PR interval? This occurs when the time it takes for the electrical impulse to travel from the atria to the ventricles is longer than usual.
What should I know about this?
This can indicate an underlying heart condition, such as AV block or Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome. It can also occur due to medications, electrolyte imbalances, or changes in your heart structure.
If you have a prolonged PR interval, it is crucial to see a medical professional for further evaluation and treatment. In some cases, this may require a pacemaker to correct the delay in electrical conduction.
It is essential to monitor and manage any potential heart conditions to prevent complications such as arrhythmias or heart failure. So if you notice a change in your PR interval on an electrocardiogram (ECG), bring it up with your healthcare provider.
