The heart is one of the most important organs in the human body and it refers to a muscular organ of the body that pumps blood through the body. If there is no proper circulation of blood to a part of the body or the whole body, it can damage the part or even lead to a loss of life..
A normal heart rate for a healthy adult is between 60 and 100 beats per minute. Heart rates of more than 100 beats per minute are abnormal. If a situation occurs and the heart is beating too fast, it may not pump blood effectively to the rest of the body.

The common symptoms of irregular heart beat include;
- Shortness of breath
- Increased pulse rate

- Loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest in severe cases.
Please see your doctor immediately if you are experiencing any of these. Remember health is wealth, big wealth for that matter.
