Bradycardia

Bradycardia is a condition in which the heart beats too slowly (less than 60 beats per minute). It may be caused by a problem with the heart’s natural pacemaker, the SA node, or a problem in the conduction pathways of the heart (electrical impulses are not conducted from the atria to the ventricles). This condition may require treatment with a pacemaker.
