Types of arrhythmias

Arrhythmias can be classified according to speed: fast or slow

  1. Tachycardia is a pulse or heart rate faster than 100 beats per minute.
  2. Bradycardia is a pulse or heart rate slower than 60 beats per minute.

Having tachycardia or bradycardia doesn’t automatically mean you have a heart condition. The heart rate often changes in response to different kinds of situations such as physical activity and temperature. Tachycardia is usually experienced after exercising as the heart works harder to provide our tissues with oxygen. When we are sleeping our resting heart rate can become bradycardic as well.
