Overview

Arrhythmia are disorders where the rate or rhthym of the heartbeat is irregular. The heart can beat too fast (tachycardia), too slow (bradycardia), or with an irregular rhythm. The Arrhythmia full panel tests genes known to be associated with arrhythmias. VCGS provides tiered options that contain genes specific to subsets of arrhythmia conditions.
