Treatment of respiratory arrhythmia

Author Ольга Кияница


In modern medicine, respiratory arrhythmia is prescribed in rare cases. In the main therapy, patients who, in addition to rhythm disturbances, are susceptible to diseases of other organs and systems. Therefore, it is worth considering the issue of prescribing drugs and drugs for respiratory arrhythmias in more detail.

Respiratory arrhythmia is sometimes called sinus, as it does not change the normal rhythm of the heart. It is expressed in the elongation of the RR interval on the electrocardiogram taken during inhalation and exhalation.It is on the exhalation that the indicated interval increase is observed.Other significant signs of arrhythmia are not manifested (in rare cases, complaints of palpitations, weakness, dizziness may be presented), therefore, physicians often see a violation of the rhythm as natural.

In children, respiratory arrhythmia is often perceived as a peculiarity of adulthood, whereas in adults the appearance of such a rhythm disorder may be associated with concealed diseases that have not yet manifested itself.

Serious complications do not cause respiratory arrhythmias, since in the absence of other pathologies in the body it does not contribute to the development of hemodynamic disorders. Therefore, specific medicines and drugs for the treatment of respiratory arrhythmia are prescribed in rare cases.

General recommendations

Treatment of respiratory arrhythmia may not be necessary in those situations where the probability of development of a pathology will be reduced. To do this, the following categories of population should be included in the risk group:

  • people exposed to frequent psychoemotional overstrain;
  • suffering from depletion of the body;
  • after surgery or intoxication;
  • suffering from a long-standing disease, most often of an infectious origin;
  • patients with a disorder of the nervous system (VSD, neurosis, neuritis);
  • patients with diseases of the spine (cysts, hernias, osteochondrosis);
  • patients with endocrine pathology;
  • arrogant smokers and lovers of alcoholic beverages.


If an adult is not in the presented risk groups, then he has a minimal chance to detect such a violation of the rhythm as respiratory arrhythmia.

Medicinal treatment of respiratory arrhythmia

Most often it is not performed, because the patients feel well and there are no signs of adverse cardiac disorders. If a person indicates an intolerance to a condition, then he should first seek advice from a psychotherapist, since the appointment of arrhythmic drugs for such a reason is not justified.


In determining respiratory arrhythmias, first of all, you need to pay attention to lifestyle. Simple recommendations should be made and then adults will be able to improve their condition:

  • normalize the mode of work and rest;
  • moderate heavy physical activity;
  • adjust the food in the direction of consuming a useful heart of food;

It is important not to overload the heart with excess water intake (no more than 2 liters per day per day) and cooking salt (maximum amount - 1.5 g per day).
