Sinus arrhythmia

I am 42yrs healthy man and have some questions below:1- What is Sinus arrhythmia? is it a cause of concern?2- I have heard that is does it happen right when you set down after light exercise, like five floors stairs climbing or so. Is that right?3- what is post-exercise transient sinus arrhythmia?

One of the most common arrhythmias is a sinus arrhythmia and involves a heart rate change with inspiration/expiration, especially in younger people.

You can read more here:

Post-exercise transient sinus arrhythmia has no clinical significance unless it is an Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia (IST).

Hope this helps,
Dr T
