Arrhythmias Abnormal Heartbeats

Author : Ronaldo Santagize

Some people who have abnormal heartbeats may perhaps not even be aware of them. Awareness of heartbeats (called palpitations) varies widely amongst people. Some men and women can really feel regular heartbeats, and a lot of people can really feel heartbeats when they lie on their left side.
Arrhythmias have consequences that range from harmless to life threatening. The seriousness of an arrhythmia may not be closely linked using the severity of the symptoms it causes. Typically, the nature and severity of the underlying heart illness are extra necessary than the arrhythmia itself. Some life-threatening arrhythmias cause no symptoms. Otherwise inconsequential arrhythmias can trigger severe symptoms.

When arrhythmias impair the person's heart's ability to pump blood, they can generate weakness, a decreased capacity for physical exercise, light-headedness, dizziness, and fainting. Fainting occurs when the heart is pumping so inefficiently, it can no longer maintain enough blood pressure. If such an arrhythmia persists, death may be a direct result.

Arrhythmias might also aggravate the symptoms of underlying heart disease, such as chest pain and shortness of breath. Arrhythmias that generate symptoms require prompt attention.
Generally, a person's description of symptoms can support doctors make a preliminary diagnosis, determining the severity of the arrhythmia. Essentially the most essential considerations are whether or not the palpitations are quick or slow, regular or irregular. If the palpitations are brief or prolonged? No matter whether or not the arrhythmia itself produces symptoms?

Doctors also should know no matter if the palpitations occur. At rest or only during strenuous or unusual activity, whether they commence and stop suddenly or gradually. Nevertheless, particular diagnostic procedures are generally needed to figure out the exact nature of the arrhythmia and its trigger

Folks with suspected life-threatening arrhythmias are commonly hospitalized. Their heart rhythm is continuously recorded and displayed on a television-type monitor by the bedside or nursing station. Therefore, any issues is often identified promptly.
