Long QT Syndrome is defined as a heart condition that can trigger chaotic heartbeats. The initial and the most common signs of this condition include fainting and sudden seizures. If the condition gets more severe, it can even lead to death. The causes for the onset of Long QT Syndrome are genetic conditions, certain kinds of medications and some medical conditions. Although it can be treated with medicines, in some cases a surgery and even an implantable device may also be required. Those who have this condition are advised not to indulge in sports and physical activities, as it may cause their hearts to beat faster.
HOW IS LONG QT SYNDROME DIAGNOSED?
Long QT Syndrome can be confirmed by getting an electrocardiogram (ECG).
