Patient : A few years ago I was diagnosed as having a "sinus AV block". I am teaching Engineering English in China and have little access to decent medical treatment and a relatively low income. Lately now, I am very fatigued and today my heart rate is averaging 39 at rest. The doctor here has given me a bottle of Atropine and says I should take it when my heart rate goes below 50. Can you give me any advice on this? Thank you.
