Overview

An informative and educational column on infectious diseases, public health and sports medicine by Dr. Keith Roach, a highly respected physician at Weill Cornell Medical College and New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Have you ever felt your heart "skip a beat" or felt like your heart was racing? Heartbeat irregularities-whether the beat is too fast, too slow, or out of rhythm-are known as arrhythmias. They often occur in healthy people. The problem is that they also can be caused by serious heart disease; and some types of arrhythmias may be a danger signal that a person has a potentially fatal heart irregularity. Heartbeat irregularities are complex, but they are better understood today than they were in the past. It is important to know what an irregularity is, what is causing it, and how to treat it.
