Episode 7Heart Palpitations & Sleep

Heart palpitations can be caused by stress or anxiety, but they can also be a symptom of a critical heart condition, such as atrial fibrillation, or “a-fib.” Cardiologist Vinod Patel, MD discusses the difference between heart palpitations caused by anxiety and those caused by a-fib, as well as the alarming statistic that individuals are two to three times more likely to experience sleep apnea along with a-fib.
