People tend to complain about long-term overload and stress, which often results not only in increased blood pressure but also in cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Cardiovascular diseases are becoming more and more widespread, they affect people of an increasingly younger age.


Arrhythmia is a disorder of the heart rhythm, often it can be felt by the patient himself, as increased or rapid heartbeats or, on the contrary, slowed heart rate, temporary stoppage of heartbeats, pain in the chest, but the development of the disease without noticeable symptoms are also possible. Arrhythmia, like any other heart disease, is a serious threat to health, so it is important to make a timely diagnosis and start a course of treatment. Arrhythmia affects the blood flow in the body and can increase the risk of stroke and the progression of heart failure.


The cause of rapid heart rhythm fluctuations can be a serious illness. If the cause is unclear, it is recommended to consult a doctor, preferably an arrhythmologist.

A cardiologist is a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart diseases, while an arrhythmologist is a cardiologist who specializes in the treatment of arrhythmia. Using modern methods and examinations, an arrhythmologist makes a diagnosis and provides information about medical procedures, such as a pacemaker.


When is a cardiologist or arrhythmologist consultation necessary?

  • pain in the heart area;
  • if the family doctor suspects congenital or acquired heart disease or failure;
  • after cardiac surgery to choose further treatment;
  • if heart rhythm disorders are suspected;
  • if you have fainted during physical exertion;
  • if there have been congenital heart problems in the family;
  • high blood pressure,
  • for information about medical procedures such as pacemaker implantation and electrical impulse therapy. Patients with acute or chronic heart rhythm disorders can refer to an arrhythmologist.
