Each day, the heart pumps approximately 2,000 gallons of blood throughout the body and beats about 100,000 times. The heart is located in the center of the chest but, because the bottom of the heart tips to the left, more of the heartbeat is felt on that side of your body.
Normally, electricity flows through the heart and produces the familiar thump-bump pattern that can be heard through a stethoscope. But if there’s an irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia, your cardiologist may recommend you go to an electrophysiology lab to determine the cause of the abnormal rhythm.
Cardiac arrhythmias are disturbances in the rate or rhythm of the heart’s electrical system. These disturbances can range from inconvenient to life-threatening.
