aetiologies that occur during normal sinus rhythm. A significant proportion of palpitations are due to non-life-threatening, treatable cardiac conditions. They include premature ventricular contractions, premature atrial contractions, and supraventricular tachycardias such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, atrioventricular nodal re-entry tachycardia, atrial tachycardia, and atrioventricular re-entry tachycardia or Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Ironically, the most common rhythm seen when (...) evaluating patients for palpitations is sinus rhythm. A heightened sense of normal rhythm can be seen in settings of emotional or physical stress, or in conjunction with use of caffeine, alcohol, or other stimulants. However, palpitations are occasionally a manifestation of potentially life-threatening conditions, especially in the setting of structural heart disease - for example, ventricular tachycardia, which may lead to sudden cardiac death.

CLINICAL FACTORS AND DIAGNOSIS Attack disorders such as faint and epilepsy produce their effects because some element of physiology becomes disordered, temporarily disturbing the function of the brain.
