Answer

Outpatient follow-up care is dependent on the underlying cause of the bradycardia.

Most patients should be able to follow up with their primary care provider or obtain a referral for a follow-up visit.

Some patients may require specialized referral to a cardiologist. Arrange prompt follow-up care in patients with symptomatic sinus bradycardia.

Regular follow-up care is necessary for patients in whom a permanent pacemaker is placed.
