Sinus Pause and Brachycardia
My sixteen year old athletic daughter was just diagnosed with Sinus Pause and Brachycardia. What does that mean and what treatment if any is available? She was suffering from bad headaches and low blood pressure.

Bradycardia means your daughter's heart rate runs around 60, or lowere, heart beats per minute. If she is an athlete, that's normal; many athletes have rates in the 40s range. The same for the lowere blood pressure. Unless she is having cardiac symptoms, there would be no treatment, because it wouldn't be necessary. Was she evaluated by a pediatric cardiologist? If not, she probably should be. On a side note, there is also a Pediatric Cardiology Forum here on Medhelp for parent support.

Thank you for the info. No, she has been referred to a pediatric cardiologist waiting for the appointment as we speak. As far as I know there are no cardiac symptoms.
