Cardiac Arrhythmia

Undefined

Cardiac Arrhythmia is a serious but treatable condition. It occurs when the electrical impulses which coordinate heartbeats malfunction, thus causing the heart to beat too quickly or slowly. There are various types of Arrhythmias, e.g. Paroxysmal Supra-Ventricular Tachycardia [PSVT], Atrial Flutter, Atrial Fibrillation, Ventricular Tachycardia, and Ventricular Fibrillation.

Arrhythmias are caused by various factors, including Hypertension, Ischemic heart disease, Valvular heart disease, Cardiomyopathies, Sinus node disease, Tumors, Pericarditis, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), Thyroid Disease, alcohol abuse, Vagal stimulation, smoking, and other modern day lifestyles that have adverse health effects.

Our doctors order specific tests to diagnose an arrhythmia, depending on which type of arrhythmia is suspected. In addition to the blood tests, a doctor may order:

  • An Electrocardiogram/Echocardiogram.
  • A 24 hour electrocardiogram using a Holter monitor.
  • An Electrophysiology Study (EP Diagnostic Studies), to help pinpoint the origin of the rhythm disorder and ascertain the best treatment.
