Arrhythmia: Medical IDs Are Essential For People With Heart Conditions

An arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat. Typically, arrhythmia is not serious or life threatening, but that is not always the case. The three main types of arrhythmia are:

  • Tachycardia, when the heart beats too fast;
  • Bradycardia, when the heart beats too slowly;
  • Atrial Fibrillation, when the heart beats erratically.

Arrhythmia can cause a number of symptoms that indicate a need for immediate medical attention:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Fainting
  • Weakness

Regardless of the severity of the arrhythmia diagnosis, all arrhythmia patients should wear medical ID jewelry at all times. In an emergency situation, first responders and emergency room personnel need to know whether an arrhythmia they notice is a new event or a known issue, and they need to know if you are taking any related mediation. This helps speed diagnosis and treatment tremendously. As well, if they do not notice the arrhythmia, medical ID jewelry will alert them to the situation so proper treatment can be administered. Lastly, atrial fibrillation can increase the risk of a stroke, which means that in an emergency, first responders need to consider a stroke immediately.
