Any abnormality in the rhythm or rate of heartbeat is called arrhythmia. Irregular beating of the heart hampers adequate blood flow to the body organs, which can affect their function.
Sometimes arrhythmias are quite difficult to catch by itself as their symptoms can be mild and infrequent. A consultation with an electrophysiologist may be needed if you have the following symptoms.
The most commonly observed symptoms are:
Fluttering sensation in the chest
Shortness of breath
Chest pain or discomfort
Scarring or death of heart tissue due to heart diseases such as coronary heart disease, heart failure and rheumatic heart disease
Previous heart surgery
Obstructive sleep apnoea
Excessive intake of alcohol or caffeine
