Arrhythmia

Electrical impulses regulate heart contractions that pump blood. If those impulses don’t function correctly, heart rhythm problems, or arrhythmias, develop.

A racing or fluttering heart rate (known as atrial fibrillation, or AFib), irregular heartbeat, skipping heartbeat, and other heart rhythm disorders are arrhythmias.

The experts in our Heart Rhythm Center at Abington Memorial Hospital and Cardiac Arrythmia Service at Lansdale Hospital use advanced technology for diagnosis and treatment, with a focus on curing arrhythmias.

Symptoms of Arrhythmia

Your doctor may detect that you have a heart rhythm problem before you are aware of it. Arrhythmia may cause dizziness, shortness of breath, fainting or chest pain. If you have a sudden onset of symptoms, call 911 and get emergency help.
