Abstract: Arrhythmias have accounted for significant cardiac morbidities and mortalities over the past few decades. Although some arrhythmias may appear benign or potentially dangerous, the major causes of sudden cardiac arrest are direct results of ventricular tachycardia (VT) and/or ventricular fibrillation (VF). In Tibb-e-Unani, there is no concept of cardiac dysrhythmia as such. But many signs and symptoms of cardiac dysrhythmia are described as diseases, e.g. Khafqan (palpitation), Gashi (syncope), Zoaf-e-qalab (heart weakness) Zigatul qalab, and Qazaful qalab. The basic concept of cardiac dysrhythmia is given as collaborative efforts of both Unani and modern medicine. All authentic books of Tibb-e-Unani such as Al-Qanun Fittib, Kitabul Hawi, and Kamil-u-Sana explain about these basic signs and symptoms in right perspective.
