What Are The Complications Associated With arrhythmia?

Princeton,NJ/ 360prwire/ December 7/

Arrhythmia is often characterized as irregular heartbeat which occurs when the electrical signals that coordinate the heartbeat can’t function normally. This makes your heartbeat too fast or too slow or irregular, and out of rhythm. As a result, one may feel like a racing heart or fluttering.

Heart arrhythmias are usually harmless, but if the condition persists and results from a diseased or damaged heart, then it can be life-threatening and can lead to serious complications.

Following are some chronic and potential complications of arrhythmia:


Stroke is a life-threatening health condition that occurs when the blood vessel carrying blood to the brain gets blocked, thus restricting the oxygenated blood from reaching the brain. As a result, your brain may lose its normal functioning and may get permanently damaged when your brain gets deprived of oxygen. This, in turn, can be chronic which can lead to disability or even life-threatening.

People with heart arrhythmia are five times more likely to have a stroke than a normal person. This is because when you are suffering from arrhythmia, the blood can’t circulate to your body parts, thus leading to the formation of blood clots. These clots formed in the atria may travel to the brain and can block the narrow blood vessels leading to a stroke.

Heart Failure

Your heart pumps blood to other parts of your body, thus keeping your other body organs functioning normally and you alive. However, when you are suffering from arrhythmia, your heart can’t pump the blood effectively to the place where it is needed. By the time the extra effort of your heart to pump blood forcefully so that it reaches the other body parts makes it weak. This, in turn, hinders your heart’s normal functioning, leading to heart failure.

Heart failure is a chronic health condition and is life-threatening. Sometimes it may happen that due to a malfunctioning heart, there may be chances that blood gets accumulated in the veins of your lungs, leading to the build-up of fluid. This may further result in shortness of breath and fatigue.


To work properly and do day-to-day activities, your body needs a constant supply of oxygenated blood. Unfortunately, when you are suffering from arrhythmia, your heart can’t pump enough blood to your other body parts, leading to fatigue and extreme weakness.

However, you can overcome the weakness and fatigue by taking a rest between the daily activities, taking proper sleep at night, and doing regular exercise.

Erection Issues In Men

Heart disease like arrhythmia is found to be associated with the inability of an erection in men. Irregular heartbeat due to arrhythmia restricts the blood supply to your body parts including your genitals. Lack of sufficient blood to the penis leads to a failed erection.

Most men often take pills like Cenforce 200 to get back their erections. Cenforce 200 is a sildenafil tablet that works by increasing the blood supply to the penis. Cenforce 200 does this by triggering the relaxation of the penile smooth muscles. However, Cenforce 200 has some potential side effects and drug interactions, which may worsen the situation.

Cenforce 200 often interacts with a few heart medicines, which also cause a sudden drop in blood pressure leading to dizziness and fatigue.

Symptoms Of Arrhythmia

One may not experience any symptoms of arrhythmia. However, some of its common signs may include:

  • Fluttering
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Slow heartbeat
  • Feeling as if your heart skipped a beat

Once the disease turns severe, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Breathing problems
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness
  • Extreme weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Excessive sweating
  • Fainting
  • Anxiety
  • Blurred vision

If you experience any of the above symptoms, seek medical assistance immediately.

Causes Of Arrhythmia

Factors that can affect the normal functioning of your heart leading to arrhythmia are:

  • Medicines used to treat high blood pressure, cold, depression and allergies
  • High blood pressure
  • Severe dehydration
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid problem
  • Sleeping problems like sleep apnea
  • Electrolyte imbalance
  • Smoking
  • Infection
  • High fever
  • Excess exercise 
  • Alcohol and substance abuse
  • Heavy caffeine intake
  • Stress
  • Poor diet 

Apart from the above causes, increased age and family background of the disease may also increase your chances of getting arrhythmia.

Types Of Arrhythmia

Based on the site where they happen, arrhythmia is divided into the following categories:

Atrial Fibrillation (AFib)– It occurs when the upper chambers of your heart abnormally known as atria contract, usually more than 400 times a minute.

Atrial Flutter– It occurs in people who already have some kind of heart disease and often leads to atrial fibrillation.

Ventricular Fibrillation(Vfib)– It occurs when the lower chambers of your heart known as ventricles quiver and are unable to supply blood to other body parts.

Long QT Syndrome– This happens when ventricles take too long to contract and release.

How To Prevent The Complications Of Arrhythmia?

Once you get diagnosed with arrhythmia, your doctor will prescribe you some medications and a few lifestyle changes to avoid any kind of potential complications.

Following are some heart-healthy practices that need to be followed to reduce the risk of arrhythmia complications:

  • Maintaining a healthy body weight.
  • Exercising regularly. Including aerobic exercises in your daily exercise plan to boost the blood flow and shed excess weight
  • Having a balanced and healthy diet low in trans and saturated fats, salts and cholesterol. Including green veggies, fibrous fruits, low-fat dairy products, lean proteins, nuts and whole grains.
  • Avoiding the heavy intake of alcohol and caffeine
  • Quitting smoking
  • Maintaining blood pressure and body cholesterol.
  • Managing blood sugar levels
  • Visiting the doctor regularly for check-ups.

Most men often face difficulty in having an erection while suffering from arrhythmia. However, most of them take pills like Cenforce 200 to ease the situation.

According to studies, it has been established that taking PDE5 inhibitors like Cenforce 200 may increase your chances of heart disease like myocardial infarction, stroke, and arrhythmia. Cenforce 200 is a vasodilator that helps widen the blood vessels, thus allowing more blood to flow, leading to a sharp decline in blood pressure which sometimes can be lethal.
