This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • It doesn't say does the heard really skips a beat, but talks about the sensation of that, with "skip a beat" in double-quotes. As I read the full text quote in the answer, the next beat is simply delayed due to internal pressure. It's not that there is one beat missing. – Martin Scharrer Mar 27 '12 at 13:50

    I see no significant difference between stopping for a short time and skipping a beat, closing as duplicate. – Mad Scientist Mar 27 '12 at 14:00
