Paroxysm of arrhythmia
Paroxysm of arrhythmia is an attack accompanied by disturbances of the heart rhythm (rapidity, weakening, interruptions). It can occur several times a day and very rarely, depending on the underlying disease. At the same time arrhythmia can last from several minutes to several months.
Seizures can be provoked by:
- strong physical activity,
- infectious disease,
- the use of certain medicines and other factors.
In people with chronic cardiovascular disorders, paroxysms of arrhythmia can occur without any cause and at any time, including in sleep.
