by Richard Mitchell, MD, PhD

Arrhythmia broadly refers to a group of disorders that involve dysfunction and/or dysregulation of either heart rate or heart rhythm. It can be classified as “fast” (tachyarrhythmia) or “slow” (bradyarrhythmia), and either of these classifications can be further divided according to the origin, means of transmission, and syndromes associated with it. Patients with an arrhythmia may exhibit a broad spectrum of clinical presentations, from being entirely asymptomatic to sudden cardiac arrest.
