Arrhythmia can be a distressing experience as an irregular heartbeat is uncomfortable and worrying. What’s more, it affects over 2 million people in the UK, and many cases go untreated. That is why Midland Health provides expert care for our patients to alleviate arrhythmia.
At our private arrhythmia clinic in Birmingham, our medical professionals excel at diagnosing the symptoms and conditions to treat your arrhythmia and remove the discomfort. Our experienced cardiologists can run modern, effective tests on your heart’s rhythm and activity to identify problems.
Arrhythmia is an abnormality in the rhythm of your heartbeat. There are multiple types, each one affecting your heartbeat differently. Your risk of arrhythmia increases if you drink alcohol excessively, are overweight or have suffered previous heart attacks or failures.

It is crucial to remember that heart palpitations are generally harmless and are rarely caused by medical conditions. They could come on as a result of simple things like stress, lack of sleep, excessive exercise, caffeine, drugs or alcohol, amongst other reasons.
