Is arrhythmia a common condition?

This condition is very common, especially as we age. Although many cases are harmless, some can be dangerous and may require medical treatment as well as management.

According to Mediclinic magazine, ‘when arrhythmias last long enough to affect how the heart works, more serious symptoms may develop’.
