In brief: Depends

It depends on what the abnormal rhythm is.
Mostly these are benign and fairly easily treated, while others have more complex treatment strategies or can potentially be dangerous. Need to find out what it is.

It may mean nothing significant to potentially life threatening, depending on type of abnormal heart rhythm. Some types may be heriditary.
Please find out the type of heart rhythm issue your brother is having and how he is doing.
