Every heart beats in a regular rhythm and rate. For a adult it is between 50 to 100 beats per minute. Children have naturally higher normal heart rates than adults.

When the heart beats too fast, too slow, or with a skipping (irregular) rhythm, a person is said to have an arrhythmia. A change in the heart's rhythm may feel like an extra-strong heartbeat (palpitation) or a fluttering in your chest. Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) often cause this feeling.

This is accompanied by a panic attack and anxiety, especially among women. This appears unexpectedly and reveals itself differently: Physical exercises may give an extra stimulus to the increase of heart rate, especially in cases with atherosclerosis disease.
