An arrhythmia is a disorder of the heart's beating rhythm.
When it causes a noticable change in the sound of a beat,
when heard by a doctor's stethoscope,
it is often called a "heart murmur".
There are various different types of arrhythmias
ranging from almost harmless to very serious.
Correct diagnosis of the specific subtype and
any underlying condition is extremely important.
