Independent advice on private healthcare
The heart (‘cardiac’) can beat out of rhythm (‘arrhythmia’) due to several causes. Some of these causes are: an insufficient supply of oxygen; blocked heart vessels, abnormal electrical conduction, thyroid disorder and due to certain medicines. Dizziness, an abnormally heightened awareness of heartbeat (‘palpitation’), difficulty in breathing and chest pain are the usual complaints. Sudden death can also occur. This heart condition can be detected using an electrocardiogram and treated by a cardiologist inserting a pacemaker to help keep your heartbeat regular.
