Heart arrhythmia, also known as cardiac dysrhythmia, is a condition characterized by irregular heartbeats or abnormal heart rhythms. 
This condition can range from harmless to life-threatening, depending on the severity and frequency of the irregularities. In this comprehensive essay, we will discuss heart arrhythmia, its causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. We will also delve into the historical context, major events, key figures, and the impact of heart arrhythmia on society.
