atrial fibrillation and blacking out

Posted by @juliesturm, Jul 12, 2012

my dad has this and just recently he has been having black outs he just drops he has had 2 ops first one was no good second one went ok now a year and a half later he is having these black out times where he just passes out the last one happened at work and he hit his head he has had these black out times about six times in the last 2-3 weeks he has seen the specialist and they dont know what is going on we were hoping they would put a pace maker in but they are leaving it for now(crazy) they say he cant live alone because if his heart does stop(well you know) but hes very stubborn and doesnt want any one with him just want to know if any one has had symptoms like this and what it is and how to fix it. thanx

Has Dr visited with your Father about a defibrillator? When he “blacks out” does he come to on his own? Good luck with assisting your Father through this issue.

he comes to after a minute or so he hasnt needed a defibrillator yet! and because he lives on his own im quite worried . the doc has said that when people have these episodes 59% die with the first and 80% with the second so far he has had 10 or more i just dont know what to do the doc doesnt know what is happening but they also arent doing any thing about it , i think luck is something my dads running out of and the head specialist isnt coming back for two weeks

dad got some of his results back there isnt anything wrong with the electrical pulses and now he is remembering that the episodes started when he started on different medication so hopefully it is that thanx for the reply zanaae 🙂
