Types of Cardiac Arrhythmia

A woman taking the birth control medications Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella may develop an unusual heartbeat because of these medications. An unusual heartbeat, or cardiac arrhythmia, can cause serious health problems as well as disrupt the normal flow of blood throughout the body. As a result, women with this problem may be at increased risk for a heart attack.

If you have suffered due to taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, the pharmaceutical company responsible for this drug may also be held liable for your resulting health problems. To discuss the details of your case, contact the Yasmin lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today.

Cardiac Arrhythmia Variations

An irregular heartbeat can increase a person’s chances of experiencing serious health problems such as heart failure or stroke. However, not all forms of cardiac arrhythmia are the same. Different people may experience variations in their heart arrhythmias. These arrhythmias are defined according to how the problem affects the heart’s rate of beating and what particular part of the heartbeat is malfunctioning.

A woman may develop the following types of cardiac arrhythmia after taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella:

  • Bradycardia, or decreased heart rate
  • Tachycardia, or increased heart rate
  • Automaticity, or when heart muscles trigger a heartbeat on their own
  • Re-entry, or when cardiac electricity goes in a loop
  • Fibrillation, or when a heart chamber beats erratically

Many of these problems can increase the possibility of a future emergency. In the case of ventricular fibrillation, these arrhythmias are considered a type of heart attack.
