Several factors contribute to palpitation. In patients suffering from deficiency of qi and blood and insufficiency of heart-energy, palpitation may occur following sudden mental irritation. It may also be caused by deficiency of the heart-blood that fails to nourish the heart. Internal disturbance by phlegm- fire and disorder of heart—energy may also give rise to palpitation. Another causing factor is the dysfunction of heart-yang that leads to fluid retention.
