What happens when you suffer from fatal arrhythmia?
When someone suffers from fatal arrhythmia, what it means is that their heartbeat is not normal. It can either be beating too fast, too slow, or at an irregular rate. Because of this, the blood flow to your vital organs are affected. Some of the vital organs affected by fatal arrhythmia are the brain and heart.
The effects of fatal arrhythmia are fatal and they include, but are not limited to, stroke, sudden cardiac arrest, and heart failure. If a normal heart rhythm is not brought back within minutes, it could lead to the death of anyone suffering from fatal arrhythmia.
