In brief: Several
An EKG to see what the exact rhythm is and to look for other abnormalities.
A history and physical examination. You may have a heart murmur or appear pale if you have anemia for instance. Blood tests to exclude anemia or an overactive thyroid gland for instance. A holter monitor to catch and record the abnormal rhythm. An echocardiogram to evaluate heart function and the valves.
