Lubdub lubdub.....PALPITATIONS!

Most of the time , we are completely unaware of our faithful heart, which beats tirelessly over 100,000 times a day.  It is only when its rhythm becomes disrupted that we notice it: as a skipped beat, a racing heartrate, or we experience symptoms such as dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain or fainting.

Most palpitations are benign, meaning not life-threatening.  Sometimes, however, the electrical circuits of the heart are damaged and the rhythm becomes erratic and even fatal. 

Honor your heart. And watch the KUAM Healthy Living video below to learn more about palpitations.
