IANS Story on Skipped a Heartbeat?
Posted On: 23-Sep-2015

New Delhi: If you are young and at times experience sudden weakness, perspiration, shortness of breath and the need to sit down - with your heart beat pulsating, do not just disregard it as a "panic attack".

 

With cases of irregular heartbeat - or cardiac arrhythmia - on the rise among young Indians in their thirties, owing to bad lifestyle conditions, heart experts in the country are frequently seeing young patients with such conditions - also known as the disorder of the heart rate or heart rhythm.

 

"Numbers have gone up. The awareness has also driven young patients seeking help for their earlier diagnosed panic attacks which turn out to be arrhythmia and a completely treatable condition if caught well in time," Dr Vanita Arora, head (cardiac electrophysiology lab and arrhythmia services) at Max Healthcare Super Specialty Institute in New Delhi told IANS.

 

Apart from being a congenital condition for some, experts blame the rise on bad eating habits, smoking, alcohol binging, lack of exercise, consumption of soda-laden and energy drinks and stress.
