Understanding Arrhythmias

When you keep your hand on your chest, you can feel your heartbeat. These heartbeats are generated through electrical impulses in the heart. The electrical impulse starts in specialized cells in the SA node and travels through your heart. Further, these impulses control the timing of heartbeat and heart rhythm and keep the heart pumping blood.

When the electrical impulses are not generated properly or stop working, heart problems such as arrhythmia occurs. Arrhythmias mean irregular heartbeat, which means that the heart is out of its rhythm. It may feel like your heart has skipped a beat or fluttering or pacing. Arrhythmias can give rise to life-threatening complications. Holter at home is the best diagnostic service to diagnose arrhythmias.

The most common types of arrhythmias are tachycardia and bradycardia. Holter at home has the best Holter test in Ghaziabad and Noida.

The heart rate of adults is between 60 and 100 beats per minute, if the heart rate is lower than 60 beats per minute, then this condition is known as bradycardia. Bradycardia can prove to be life-threatening if the condition is left untreated, as the heart will be unable to pump oxygen-rich blood.
