Don’t Miss a Beat With Your Heart Beat

Have you ever feel your heart skipping a beat or feel your heart flutter? What about felt light headed or dizzy, or passed out? If so, attending this talk free health talk, Arrhythmia and Your Heart, may interest you in learning more about heart rhythm disorders.

Franciscan Health System cardiologist and electro-physiologist, Dr. Amrit Guptan, MD, will review the heart’s electrical system and arrhythmia – from harmless palpitations to life-threatening situations.

Scott Thompson, media relations manager for Franciscan Health Systems, explained: “Knowing and understanding your risk of sudden cardiac arrest as well as recognizing the symptoms of cardiac arrest can save your life of the life of someone you know.  When someone has a sudden cardiac arrest time is critical, the faster someone can receive proper treatment the more likely they to survive a cardiac episode. The best part about the talk is understanding the symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest can literally save someone’s life.”

Scott recommends anyone who has a family history of cardiac problems or knows someone with heart problems to attend the free health talk.
