Arrhythmia is an alteration in the heartbeat rhythm, which is usually perceived as a palpitation. If this alteration is serious, it can reduce the heart’s ability to pump blood throughout the body efficiently, which leads to heart failure and in some cases to cardiac arrest.
Arrhythmia may be a consequence of anxiety, certain medicines, and over consumption of coffee, tobacco, and alcohol. In these cases, it is rarely severe, and may disappear when the cause is corrected. However, there are other cases in which arrhythmia may be a symptom of heart dysfunctions, which would call for an accurate diagnosis by a professional.
