In brief: Arrhythmia

In general we do not recommend rollercoasters for people with significant cardiac arrhythmias.
The stresses associated with rollercoasters could trigger arrhythmias or their complications. There are benign rhythm problems which wouldn't be a problem but a generalization would be no rollercoasters.
