Cardiac Arrhythmia

Cardiac Arrhythmia

Many people seek our help when they suffer from an irregular heart beat, heart palpitations, or when their heart skips a beat. 

Without a comprehensive consultation and examination, it is difficult to evaluate these symptoms because cardiac arrhythmias can have very different causes and effects. 

Biological causes of cardiac arrhythmias include: 

  • coronary heart disease 
  • heart attack
  • heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy)
  • heart muscle inflammation (myocarditis) 
  • heart or heart valve defect 
  • congenital or acquired disorder of the heart's electrical conduction system (e.g. Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, WPW)
  • high blood pressure 
  • electrolyte disorder (e.g. potassium deficiency)
  • over-/underactive thyroid gland (hyper-/hypothyroidism)

Other causes may include:

  • nervousness, excitement, and fear
  • excessive consumption of caffeine (e.g. in coffee or cola)
  • excessive consumption of alcohol
  • consumption of drugs and toxic substances
  • negative side effects of some medications (e.g. thyroid hormones or antidepressants)
