Common Heart Disease Cardiac Specialist Centre
We hope this section gives you some simple understanding of a few of the commonest conditions. We will be adding more as we continue to have feed backs and questions from our esteemed friends.
Palpitation
Palpitation means different things to people. Some would say ‘strong heart beat’. Others would say ‘fast heart beat’. Some would just say they could feel their heart beating.

Our hearts have to beat harder and faster when under stress or when doing some physical activities.

The palpitation which you should seek medical help occurs when your heart suddenly beats at 130/min or more when you are at rest and not stressed. Or when you feel irregular heart beat. This is when you feel your pulse, it feels totally chaotic without any regular rhythm.

You should also see your doctor if there is chest pain or breathlessness accompanying your palpitation. On the other hand, the occasional ‘dropped beat’ is usually benign. As long as they do not bother you and do not cause any other symptoms, it is usually harmless.
