Heart rhythm disorders
Heart rhythm disorders, called arrhythmias, are problems usually caused by an electrical system in the heart muscle, producing abnormal heart rhythms. This can cause the heart to pump less effectively, (if the heart rate is slow, or less than 60 beats per minute, say 30-45 beats per minute) which can lead to symptoms like fatigue, chest pain and dizziness.
Your pulse is your heart rate, or the number of times your heart beats in one minute. Pulse rates are different from person to person.
Count the beats you feel for 10 seconds. Multiply this number by six to get your heart rate (pulse) per minute.
Count your pulse: _ beats in 10 seconds x 6 = _ beats/minute
