Bradycardias are arrhythmias characterized by an abnormally slow heartbeat. Examples include sick sinus syndrome, when the heart's sinus node or another part of its electrical conduction system isn't working correctly; and heart block, which is often caused by a congenital heart defect. Heart block happens when electrical pulses can't make their way from the upper to lower chambers of the heart.
