Did you know that the heart beats around 100,000 times a day? It does so because blood, loaded with oxygen, flows through the whole body using its precision equipment. But, if one of the parts fails, several problems may occur. These are usually in the form of arrhythmias, which are disruptions of the heart rate. If this happens, the heart can beat too fast (tachyarrhythmia) or too slowly (bradyarrhythmia), or do so out of time.
When one of these circumstances arises, the heart may not pump enough blood to the rest of the body. As you can see, there are many kinds of arrhythmias; most of them are harmless, but some are serious and may endanger the lives of those who suffer from them. Fortunately, as a result of medical breakthroughs, even the most serious ones can be successfully treated.
