When Your Heart Skips a Beat

Jordi Heijman, PhD
assistant professor of cardiology

The heart is an incredibly complex organ. Every heartbeat is orchestrated by an electrical signal that ensures that each of the hundreds of thousands of heart muscle cells contract at the right moment. During heart rhythm disorders, the electrical activity of the heart is irregular. Heijman introduces the most important heart rhythm disorders and discuss some of their underlying mechanisms.
