When we talk about the human body and if we have to pick out one most important part of the human body, then it just has to be Human Heart.

Heart is a pumping organ present in our body that keeps the blood moving in our body and is responsible for keeping us alive and kicking.

The heartbeat is actually a Symbol of Life and if anything is wrong with the human heartbeat, then it can potentially be fatal as well. This is the reason that one has to be very careful with respect to the heartbeat.

However, sometimes there is an irregular rhythm in the beats of the human heart. It is a disease that can even prove out to be fatal for the patient and Amiodarone is the medicine that cures this problem and helps the heart with maintaining a constant rhythm of heart beat.
