Arryhthmias Panel

Arrhythmias Panel

  • An arrhythmia (Greek a-, loss + rhythmos, rhythm = loss of rhythm) is a problem with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. This can mean that the heart is beating too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern (1). Arrhythmias can cause a broad range of symptoms, from barely noticeable to cardiovascular collapse and death (2). Several cardiac arrhythmia syndromes are now known to have a genetic basis caused by mutations in genes primarily encoding ion channels (3). Genetic tests can be used to help determine the correct diagnosis and the best treatment for an individual, and also whether any related family members have inherited the condition (4).
