Lots of things


We have about 100,000 heart beats / day. It is typically to have a few dozen to few hundred extra / skipped beats, just by the law of averages. There are lots of abnormal conditions, however, that can cause irregularity above that normal range. If you are experiencing this routinely, see your cardiologist for a full evaluation.

Afib is a likely cause. Congestive heart failure, heart block which might need a pacemaker and coronary artery blockages are also concerns. He needs to see a doctor and get an EKG and poss some other tests as well.

 Atrial fibrillation Chest Heart Fibrillation Rhythm Heart rate Cardiac Irregular heartbeat

No, technically yes


They both indicate an irregularity of your heart's rhythm. If you listen at your chest, you actually hear the heart beats. If you check a peripheral pulse, you're feeling the momentary arterial bulge that results from the heart beat. Special case: in atrial fibrillation, the pulse rate will always be "slower" than the HR because some beats aren't transmitted.
