Arrhythmia Tests: Testing for an arrhythmia can include electrocardiography (ECG/EKG), 24 hour or 48 hour Holter Monitor, 2 week Zio event monitor, or 4 week event monitor. Other potential tests for longer term monitoring can include a monitor that implants under the skin. There is also invasive testing for arrhythmias by a Cardiac Electrophysiologist called an Electrophysiology Study.

Irregular heart beat.: An arrhythmia is an irregularity of heart rhythm. There are many forms of arrhythmias, some arising from the upper chambers of the heart (atria) and some from the lower chambers (ventricles). In general, most of the atrial arrhythmias are benign and most of the ventricular arrhythmias are problematic. Your cardiologist usually treats the arrhythmias or may refer you to an electrophysiologist.
