An arrhythmia is a disturbance in the regular rhythm of your heartbeat. The rhythm may be too fast, too slow or irregular. It is caused by a problem with the electrical signals that tell your heart muscle when to contract.
The following conditions are common arrhythmias:
Long QT Syndrome
- Atrial fibrillation
- Atrial flutter
- Atrial tachycardia
- Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia
