About Heart Rhythm Disorders

Arrhythmia Associates of South Texas focuses exclusively on the diagnosis and treatment of the heart’s electrical system, which initiates and coordinates heartbeats. When this system breaks down or malfunctions, the heart rhythm may beat too fast, too slow, or irregularly, and the heart pumps less efficiently. Patients with heart rhythm disorders may experience:

  • palpitations (heart skipping)
  • shortness of breath
  • mild chest discomfort
  • fatigue easily

Some severe heart rhythm disorders can result in passing out (syncope) or even sudden death.
