Akron Children's Arrhythmia Center diagnoses and treats children and teens with all types of heart rhythm abnormalities, such as tachycardia (rapid heart rate) and bradycardia (slow heart rate). Read More...
Akron Children’s pediatric cardiologists have special training in treating heart rhythm abnormalities in kids.
These arrhythmias occur when the heart’s electrical system doesn’t function properly or when there is an extra electrical connection or abnormal electrical focus in the heart.
Symptoms of cardiac arrhythmias include fatigue, dizziness, lightheadedness and fainting spells. Extreme episodes of rapid or slow heart rates can be life-threatening.
Children may be born with a cardiac arrhythmia, or it may result from scar tissue formed after heart surgery for a congenital defect, causing an irregular heartbeat.
