BRADYCARDIA

n. a condition which manifests as heartbeat slower than normal. A slow heart rate usually reads at below 60 beats per minute, and symptoms start to show at around 50 or lower. These symptoms include shortness of breath, fainting, and at worst, cardiac arrest. See arrhythmia.

BRADYCARDIA: "Whether cardiac or non-cardiac in cause, bradycardia is usually a health condition that is acquired."
