Arrhythmia is a condition that refers to the failure of the heart to contract or beat. Internal electrical waves are the cause of the regular heartbeat which helps the heart to relax and contract. This internal electrical system controls the rhythm and rate of our heartbeat. When the internal electrical system goes awry, the heart may beat slowly, irregularly or very fast.
This irregularity of the heart’s rhythm is called arrhythmia. Only some people can feel the irregularity of their heart i.e. arrhythmia, while most people cannot feel the condition of arrhythmia. Heart rhythm irregularities (arrhythmias) can cause palpitations, which can cause long-term damage to the heart and can be a serious threat to your life.
