Not Missing a Beat
A heart rhythm disorder, or arrhythmia, is an abnormality of your heartbeat. Your heart contracts and pushes blood to the rest of your body. When your heart is beating too slowly or too rapidly, the blood may not be able to flow through your heart properly. This can cause you to feel dizzy or faint. In that case, you need medical attention from our Sugar Land cardiologist at Dr. Yassir Sonbol M.D., F.A.C.C.
Common Types of Arrhythmia
- Supraventricular tachycardia
- Atrial fibrillation
- Premature ventricular arrhythmia
Supraventricular tachycardia is the condition that occurs when you experience rapid heartbeats, whereas atrial fibrillation involves both rapid and irregular heartbeats. Premature ventricular arrhythmia occurs when there is a gap between two beats.
