2. Irregular Heartbeats Cause Cardiac Arrest.

Cardiac arrhythmia can cause either a more rapid or a slower heartbeat. The heart may become incapable of pumping sufficient blood to parts of the body. Some cardiac arrhythmia can be life-threatening and lead to cardiac arrest. Doctors often run stress tests or echocardiograms on people with arrhythmia, to find the source. Most of the time, a prescribed medication brings the condition under control.
