Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome | Treatment


How is it treated?

There are several treatment options available for WPW syndrome. You doctor may talk to you about vagal maneuvers. These are actions you can do to help slow your heart rate. These actions can include coughing or pushing down like you are having a bowel movement. If vagal maneuvers don’t help slow your heart rate, your doctor may prescribe an anti-arrhythmic medicine. For some people, surgery may also be an option.
