Cardiac arrhythmia refers to abnormal heart rhythm, as measured with an ECG. A "normal" rhythms is called a "Sinus Rhythm", as it originates in the Sinoatrial node of the heart. Any rhythm that originates elsewhere, or deviates from what is considered "normal" is an arrhythmia. There are many types of arrhythmia. On a cardiac monitor, if we see beats that are abnormal, we call the ectopy, or ectopic beats. But as far as a "term for arrhythmia"... that's the term: Arrhythmia.
This is an irregular cardiac rhythm due to a variation in the sinus rhythm -- the heartbeat usually increases during inhalation and decreases during exhalation. This condition is common in children and young adults.
The sinoatrial node is the pacemaker of the heart and determines the normal rhythm.Sinoatrial Node

Heart rate of lions ranged from 42 to 76 beats per minute (bpm). Heart rate of tigers ranged from 56 to 97 bpm. In both species, the most common rhythm detected was normal sinus rhythm followed by sinus arrhythmia; wandering pacemaker was also observed with normal sinus rhythm or sinus arrhythmia.
A defibrillator device can accomlish this.
An arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat, which divides into two categories - tachycardia in which an adult's heartbeat averages above 100 beats per minute, and bradycardia - in which an adult's heartbeat averages below 60 beats per minute.
An ANOMALY is a deviation from what is regarded as normal.
to help determine whether someone has an otherwise undetected heart disease, such as abnormal heart rhythm (cardiac arrhythmia), or inadequate blood flow through the heart.
