Those lub-dub, lub-dub thumps inside your heart should be beating at a steady rhythm. An arrhythmia occurs when a problem with your heart’s electrical system causes it to pump too fast, too slow or at irregular intervals.

Our Approach to Arrhythmia Diagnosis

Cardiac arrhythmias can create problems by not allowing enough blood to be pumped into, or out of, your heart’s chambers. This means your body’s vital organs won’t get the amount of blood they need. If left untreated, arrhythmias can cause serious and potentially fatal symptoms.

Arrhythmia symptoms include:

  • Heart palpitations
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Low blood pressure
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Heart failure
  • Collapse and cardiac arrest
  • Difficulty feeding (in babies)

Some mild arrhythmias won’t require any treatment beyond lifestyle changes like limiting your caffeine intake, while more serious ones may benefit from the insertion of a device to regulate your heartbeat.
