Despite the rapid development of complex instrumental methods of diagnosis of rhythm and conduction disorders, careful history taking and physical examination do not lose their relevance and significance. Based on the literature analysis, this article reflects the methodology of complaints and history taking, and physical examination in patients with cardiac arrhythmias. Particular attention is paid to the importance of a systemic approach to the clinical examination of patients, which allows not only to suspect the presence of cardiac arrhythmias before recording an electrocardiogram, but also to suggest their character and features, which sets the direction for subsequent diagnostic search.
