Cardiac arrhythmias are electrical disorders that cause changes in the rhythm of the heartbeat. They can be of different types: tachycardia, when the heart beats faster than normal; bradycardias, when the rhythm is too slow, and out of step, when the heart beats irregularly. It is estimated that 20 million Brazilians suffer from cardiac arrhythmias, causing more than 320,000 people to die annually.
Symptoms may include tiredness, palpitations, feeling sick, chest pain, dizziness and fainting. However, in many cases cardiac arrhythmias can be silent and asymptomatic, which reinforces the importance of performing periodic medical evaluations and routine exams. Also, if someone notices that the heart is beating improperly, they need to see a cardiologist.
According to the Brazilian Society of Cardiac Arrhythmias (Sobrac), when not correctly diagnosed and treated, cardiac arrhythmia can cause cardiac arrest, heart disease and sudden death. Anyone can be diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia, regardless of age, sex or socioeconomic status. Even newborns, healthy young people and athletes can be affected by this condition.
