Well we hate to say never in medicine, but i never heard of heat causing atrial flutter.
Perhaps if you were overheated you could get symptoms of your heart skipping, but I am talking about the rhythm called atrial flutter. There are many causes such as hypertension, overactive thyroid, valve problems, and alcohol, but not heat to my knowlege.
