Understanding Your Arrhythmia
An arrhythmia is an abnormally fast, slow or irregular heartbeat. It can sometimes feel like a “fluttering” in the chest or also be silent and have no noticeable symptoms. Many arrhythmias are harmless, but some may be dangerous and require treatment and management.
Because abnormal heart rhythms and cardiac symptoms can come and go, they can be difficult to detect. Your doctor may want to evaluate your heartbeat over time with a portable cardiac monitor.
