Heart Rhythm Disorders

Heart rhythm disorders, also known as arrhythmias, range from beating too fast (tachycardia) to beating to slow (bradycardia) to beating erratically (fibrillation). When the heart doesn't beat normally, it can cause problems like dizziness, shortness of breath, tremors, and fainting, among other things. Abnormal rhythms, such as ventricular fibrillation, can also cause sudden death.
