Do You Have an Abnormal Heart Rhythm?
Know What to Look For

Abnormal Heart Beat? Not everyone's heart beats the same way. But for some people, a different kind of heartbeat could be the sign of a problem. Whether the heart is beating too fast or too slow, an arrhythmia can often be a warning light for several conditions, or signal an increased risk of cardiac arrest.

While many types of arrhythmia can be treated with lifestyle changes or medication, some require more serious intervention. The most serious abnormal heart rhythms could require a pacemaker or implantable defibrillator.

Connect: Being diagnosed with an arrhythmia can be scary and may seem overwhelming. It may help to share your experience with others who are going through the same thing at Heart Health message board.
