At the Department of Cardiology Sterling Hospitals Gurukul Ahmedabad, we have seen many patients with arrhythmia, a condition where the heart beats irregularly or too fast/slow. Arrhythmia can be harmless or life-threatening, and it is important to seek medical attention if you suspect you have it.
There are several types of arrhythmia, including atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, and ventricular fibrillation. Causes of arrhythmia can include heart disease, high blood pressure, and electrolyte imbalances. Sometimes, the cause is unknown.
Arrhythmia can occur in stages, starting with occasional palpitations and progressing to more frequent and severe symptoms, such as shortness of breath and chest pain. It is important to identify and treat arrhythmia early to prevent complications such as stroke or sudden cardiac death.
Screening for arrhythmia may include an electrocardiogram (ECG), a Holter monitor, or an event monitor. Treatment options vary depending on the type and severity of the arrhythmia, but may include medications, cardiac ablation, or implantation of a pacemaker or defibrillator.
