Heart Arrhythmia

Though the feeling of an arrhythmia can be disturbing and is usually harmless, it can sometimes indicate a more serious, potentially life-threatening problem.

The right pace at the right time.

What Is Arrhythmia?

An arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat. It can feel like a fluttering, racing or disjointed heartbeat and can be very unsettling. Arrhythmias occur when the electrical impulses that synchronize your heartbeat don't function, causing your heart to beat too quickly, too slowly or erratically.

Is It Dangerous?

Though the feeling of an arrhythmia can be disturbing, it usually is harmless. However, a heart arrhythmia could indicate more serious, potentially life-threatening problems like stroke or heart failure. Some arrhythmias can cause problems of their own by not allowing different parts of your heart to work correctly.

At INTEGRIS Health, our elite team of cardiologists and specialist physicians approach cardiac rhythm management from a holistic perspective, considering treatments from progressive medicines and therapies to lifestyle changes that can help avoid triggering arrhythmias.
