Abnormal heart beat: It is irregular heart beat menifested by slow heart rate, fast pulse, skip beat or palpitation. Usually the adult heart beats 60to 100 during the day. Below 60 bradycardia, above 100 tachycardia. If beating at the same rate interval-regular. If the interval varies-irregular. Coming from atria-atrial & from ventricle-ventricular. Simple version. Medically many terms for them. No space here. Thanks.

Arrythmia: An arrhythmia is an abnormal rate and/or rhythm of the heartbeat. There are various types, but all are due to some problem with the electrical conducting system of the heart. Some arrhythmias are more serious than others. http://patient.info/health/abnormal-heart-rhythms-arrhythmias

Abnormal heart beat: Your heart is essentially an electrical pump. The rhythm is determined by the electrical impulse that travels thru it and is called the rhythm. This is demonstrated on an ECG. The normal heart rate is between 60-100 per minute but can change depending on the circumstance. Also the rhythm can be abnormal if it does not follow its normal path thru the heart.
