In brief: Heart skipping
Most 8Y.O. Children have healthy hearts.
Skipping of the heart if recent could be something important and if for a long time probably not. Thyroid problems, valve problems of heart or a recent viral illness could be causes. But if he appears well and runs about with no problems then he is probably fine.
