An irregular heartbeat caused by problems with the heart’s electrical system is called arrhythmia.

Patients experiencing arrhythmia may feel that their heart is beating too rapidly (tachycardia), too slowly (bradycardia), or is fluttering (fibrillation). They may also feel like their heart either added a beat or skipped one.

Arrhythmia can be completely harmless, or it can be indicative of a serious medical emergency. Either way, it is always advisable to check in with an electrophysiologist to be safe.
