81 year old woman has palpitations in every 20 seconds

My father is 81 and lies in hospital in intensive care. I keep company now to my mother also 81. I shared her bed for two evenings and in the middle of the night she has a very strong shake, I get a heart beat each 20 seconds, basically the whole bed shakes. She suffers hypertension , should I take her to hospital? This lasts for about 30 minutes and then stops and it all goes back to normal.

Hi,
Thanks for query,
Your history is not clear but what I understood that at night she gets some shakes.
I think that may be riggers she is having in the mid night.
In Malaria this type of riggers comes at fix time.
In urinary infection also one gets riggers.
Go for urine and blood check up.
For any neurological condition consult neurop physician.
Ok and bye.
