About Cardiac Arrhythmias

Cardiac arrhythmia (also called dysrhythmias) is any abnormality in the normal activation sequence of the myocardium. The electrical impulses can cause the heart to beat too fast (tachycardia), too slow (bradycardia), erratically (fibrillation), or too early (premature contraction). There can be early or extra beats in the atria or ventricle, rapid heart rates due to extra abnormal pathways between the atria and ventricles, and a delay or complete block of the electrical impulse as it travels from the sinus node to the ventricle. When the heart doesn’t beat properly, it can’t pump blood effectively. There are hundreds of different types of cardiac arrhythmias. The seriousness of cardiac arrhythmias depends on the presence or absence of structural heart disease.
