Heart Rhythm Conditions

Normal Heart Rhythm The normal human heart beats about 100,000 times per day and about 35 million times in a year. During an average lifetime, the human heart will beat more than 2.5 billion times. The heart does so with incredible accuracy and coordination most of the time ensuring optimal heart function.
Symptoms Palpitations are feelings that your heart is beating too fast, too hard, or irregularly. They can feel like your heart is flipping, fluttering, or throbbing. Sometimes they feel like an extra beat or a missed beat. Palpitations are the main symptoms experienced by heart rhythm patients.
Tachycardia Tachycardia is when your heart beats faster than normal. The normal heart rate for an adult is 60 to 100 beats per minute, but with tachycardia, the heart rate is often above 100 beats per minute. Tachycardia can be caused by a normal response to a variety of factors, including physical activity,
Bradycardia Bradycardia is a medical condition characterized by a slower than normal heart rate. In adults, bradycardia is defined as a heart rate of less than 60 beats per minute (BPM) at rest. Bradycardia can be a normal occurrence in some people, such as athletes or during sleep.
Vasovagal Syncope Syncope, also known as fainting or passing out, is a temporary loss of consciousness and muscle strength. It is caused by a temporary decrease in blood flow to the brain. Syncope is a common problem, and it can happen to anyone. It is usually not a serious medical issue,
Sudden Cardiac Death Sudden cardiac death syndrome (SCDS) is a medical condition in which a person's heart stops beating suddenly and unexpectedly, leading to death within a few minutes. SCDS is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm called ventricular fibrillation, which prevents the heart.
