Arrhythmias:

Overview:

  • Arrhythmias refer to any abnormal or irregular heartbeat. Pulse is a measurement of a patient’s heart rate, the number of beats per minute. A patient’s pulse is lower at rest and more rapid during times of exertion, such as exercise.

Symptoms:

  • Some arrhythmias are asymptomatic, and the patient may not experience any pain or discomfort. Some arrhythmias can cause fluttering or palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath or lightheadedness.

Risk factors and causes:

  • Several factors can cause or increase a patient’s risk of developing arrhythmias. These may include scar tissue in the heart, high blood pressure, smoking, coronary artery disease, thyroid problems, as well as others.

Treatment:

  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help lower the risk of arrhythmias. Arrhythmias can also be treated with medications or through procedures such as catheter ablation, cardio version, pacemaker or ICD implantation, or through bypass surgery.
