Women and Cardiac Arrhythmia

Cardiac dysrhythmia which is another name of cardiac arrhythmia, is a group of situations in which the heartbeat is uneven, too fast, or too slow, most cases are harmless, mainly there are of four types of arrhythmia: extra beats, supraventricular tachycardias, ventricular arrhythmias, and bradyarrhythmias. but some arrhythmias are extremely dangerous and require treatment and management, most of them have felt their heart beat very fast, felt a "wiggling" in their chest or thought that their heart was "leaping a beat." These can be symptoms of arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat. Women who have paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, a type of atrial fibrillation that is intermittent (or comes and goes), may have a faster heart rate response than men, and tend to have longer episodes. Sudden cardiac death is a sudden, unexpected death caused by loss of heart function. Heart rate which is too fast above 100 beats per minute in adults is known as tachycardia and if it is below 60 beats per minute – is known as bradycardia and it may be caused by many different factors, including: Coronary artery disease, electrolyte imbalances in your blood (such as sodium or potassium). Changes in your heart muscle. Men Baseline Heart Rate on average is slower compared to women and this kind of differences is seen in girls, on an average, as young as five years old. There is also a shorter sinus node refractory time – this means that it takes a shorter time for the SA node to recover and become ready to fire an impulse again and also women with diabetes have higher CVD mortality rates than men with diabetes.
