My heart skipped a beat is the saying we often
say when we are excited or nervous. Well, an
irregular heartbeat is much more common than you
think. Arrhythmia is the word for an irregular
heartbeat. Often arrhythmia is considered
harmless. However, if you feel a constant
irregular heartbeat, then you should consult a
doctor who would diagnose you if you need
irregular heartbeat treatment. Premature
ventricular contraction (PVC) is the most common
kind of irregular heartbeat. It occurs when the
heart beats too early causing a more energetic
second beat, resulting in fluttering or pounding
sensation in the chest. Most of the people
experience this at least once in a day, while
many dont even notice it. Temporary arrhythmia
can be caused due to stress, alcohol and caffeine
though there are factors that can cause permanent
arrhythmia too. Let us see the list of temporary
and permanent arrhythmia

It is advisable to make notes when you experience
irregular heartbeats and share the information
with a heart consultant. Heart surgery Heart
surgery is a life-saving operation that removes
clots to get your life back. But, the operating
heart can change the way the heart works, which
includes the rate at which heartbeats. Doctors
often monitor your heart after heart surgery as
it can increase the risk of arrhythmia. Fluctuatio
ns in your heart muscle When one experiences a
heart attack, they also risk cardiomyopathy or an
abnormality of the heart. In cardiomyopathy, the
heart may swell and make it difficult to pump
blood. This can also cause arrhythmia. Coronary
artery diseases Arteries are the path for oxygen
and nutrients. Fat, cholesterol and calcium can
build plaques in the arteries, which may lead to
coronary artery disease. These plaques make it
difficult for blood to flow and can strain the
heart from smooth functioning.

When to see a doctor? It is challenging for
people to recognise if an irregular heartbeat is
a sign of something serious. Consult your doctor
who can help you figure out certain types of
arrhythmia and monitor your heart. Types of
arrhythmia like atrial fibrillation and
ventricular fibrillation that can lead to cardiac
arrest and heart attack. Run for emergency
medical attention if you face dizziness,
shortness of breath and pain in the chest also if
you notice insensitivity on one side of your
body, facial drooping, confusion, muscular
weakness, etc. which can be signs of a stroke.
Consulting a doctor who is specialised with
cardiac issues, can profoundly suggest you
irregular heartbeat treatment, like Pranayam Lung
and Heart Institute.

What should be the frequency of heart
checkup? Generally, for people who are above the
age group 20 years should go for heart screening.
According to the American Heart Association, if a
person has average blood pressure less than
120/80mmHg, then one should be screened for
cardiovascular abnormalities every 2 years.
Adding to which, for low-risk patients
cholesterol levels should be analysed every 4 to
6 years and blood glucose level every 3
years. Once you have identified, you need to
work on your risk factors to cope up with your
health condition. Lifestyle changes - Changing
lifestyle from a lazy one to incorporating
physical exercises in your routine alleviates the
risk of physical and mental ailments. Maintaining
a good lifestyle is highly recommended for all
people who have developed risk factors for
cardiac diseases.

Exercise - Exercise works on your physical and
mental wellbeing. It prepares you for day to day
tasks, builds stamina and improves the
functioning of the heart. It would be best if
you got your cardiac screening done regularly,
according to your risk factors, to identify any
abnormality at time.

Things to Keep in Mind to Prevent Heart
Diseases Obesity is connected to various
diseases in the body. It mainly increases
cardiovascular issues. There are some of the
ways to check whether you have a risk of heart
disease. Firstly, body mass index (BMI) and waist
circumference can be checked. If your BMI is
higher than 30 and waist circumference higher
than 35 in women whereas for men if the waist
circumference is 40 or higher for men, then it
raises the level of heart disease. A healthy
diet will help to maintain weight, lowering
cholesterol, heart diseases and lower the risk of
type 2 diabetes. Have enough fruits and
vegetables meat lovers should opt for lean meat
or fish, have beans and pulses as they are good
sources of protein, and refined oil can be
replaced with olive oil.

It is necessary to have 7-9 hours of sound sleep
as sleep manages stress-reducing your heart
diseases. Lack of sleep can cause high blood
pressure, obesity and risk of a heart attack.
Snoring or sleep apnea causes destruction in the
airway, which can be severe, which can be treated
at Pranayam hospital, one of the best hospitals
in Baroda. Managing stress is another factor to
have a healthy mind and body. Everyone has a
different way to manage their stress but rather
than engaging yourself in drinking, smoking and
overreacting, it is good to have a healthy life.
Thus, meditation and yoga improve your mood and
relaxes your mind. Notice your irregular
heartbeats, consult a doctor who after analysing
can suggest you irregular heartbeat treatment. A
regular full body checkup, including heart
check-up, will help in diagonalising early
symptoms of diseases. Pranayam Lung and Heart
