Health Break: Variety of methods track, treat arrhythmias

A normal heart beats in a steady and even rhythm, usually between 60 and 100 times per minute, although that can vary with activity and age. But when a heart beats too fast, too slow or beats with an irregular rhythm, it’s called an arrhythmia. Most arrhythmias are benign, but in the United States more than 850,000 people are hospitalized each year for arrhythmias.
