SICK SINUS SYNDROME
Sick Sinus Syndrome (SSS) is a general term for a group of disorders caused by a malfunctioning sinus node. The sinus node acts as a pacemaker inside of the heart and there are multiple disorders that occur when the sinus node does not work in the proper manner. While patients suffering with Sick Sinus Syndrome display no symptoms, however, when the heart becomes compromised and cannot pump an adequate amount of blood, symptoms become apparent. Few of the signs of Sick Sinus Syndrome consist of fatigue, dizziness, very slow pulse, mental confusion, memory problems and disrupted sleep.
HOW IS SICK SINUS SYNDROME DIAGNOSED?
A General Physician/Cardiologist diagnoses Sick Sinus Syndrome by conducting an electrocardiogram (ECG) to record the electrical activity of the heart and a holter monitoring.
HOW IS SICK SINUS SYNDROME TREATED?
The treatment process is rather tricky and uses mediations that are given to high blood pressure patients for stabilising heartbeats. These comprise of high beta blockers or calcium channel blockers.

Additional treatments like Radiofrequency ablation of atrial fibrillation could be required.
