A name given to the pulsations of the heart, when they become stronger, more extensive, or more sensible to the individual than ordinarily. Palpitations occur in a number of affections. They are, sometimes, owing to organic diseases of the heart-hypertrophy, inflammation, &c.; at others, to a disease in some other viscus; whilst, frequently, they are merely nervous.
