Hi flozy,

Abnormal heart rhythms are referred to as arrhythmias. For more information, please visit the different pages on our site:

Atrial fibrillation: http://www.empowher.com/condition/atrial-fibrillation/definition

PSVT: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/paroxysmal-supraventricular-tach...

Flutter & Arrhythmia:

However, a heart concern is a good reason to visit a doctor. Try to notice how often it happens, when it happens, and for how long.
