Sinus arrhythmia :

-In this word sinus refers to the sinoatrial node also called SA node (natural pacemaker of heart)  . It generates rhythmic impulses at equal intervals , these impulses pass through the heart and cause contraction.

-In general sinus rhythm refers to the normal rhythm of the heart at which it contracts normally without any external factors acting upon it.

- For human body neither the internal nor the external conditions are constant always ,despite these dynamic changes the body always try to maintain our body at a constant condition called homeostasis . To maintain constant conditions the body have to modulate certain functions .

-sinus arrhythmia is one such modulation done by our body to the changing intrathorasic pressure . It is normal and more pronounced in children than in adults.

-sinus arrhythmia is change in the heart rate with our respiration. 

*mechanism :

- When a person inspires air ,the intrathorasic pressure decreases causing a suction effect which pulls the venous blood into the thorax. As the veins have valves the blood can't go back when we exhale and it should be pumped by the heart into arteries.

- As the blood came to the heart during inspiration is more than normal amount which comes during rest , the heart have to pump more blood during inspiration. 

-To pump more blood the heart should contract more times. This slight increase of the heart rate is normal during respiration ,and this is called as sinus arrhythmia
