A 50-year-old male asked:

Can an arrhythmia be detected by blood pressure...or a simple listening of the heart in a doctors office?

Arrhythmia: if an arrhythmia is present when you are examined, it can confirm an arrhythmia is present. Usually an ECG record of the rhythm is needed to identify the specific arrhythmia
