Introduction. A basic knowledge of the cardiac action potential and cardiac conduction system facilitates understanding of cardiac arrhythmias. The effects and side-effects of anti-arrhythmic drugs are depended on the influence on ion channels involved in the generation and/or perpetuation of . This book is a comprehensive and practical updated review about the various aspects of cardiac arrhythmias. It covers a variety of aspects of both atrial and nonatrial arrhythmias, including genetics, clinical aspects, ECG manifestations, and practical approaches to complex cardiac arrhythmia management - office, hospital, intensive care unit, electrophysiology laboratory, and operating room. Abstract. Cardiac anatomy remains a cornerstone for successful and safe interventional treatment for cardiac arrhythmias. The importance of appreciating detailed anatomy and correlating the specifics real time with fluoroscopy and intracardiac echocardiography as well as the sensed electrograms have become even more relevant with complex arrhythmia management. The ancient magnificence of Clinical cardiac electrophysiology and compre the site was matched by the novelty of modem art and hension of arrhythmias has been largely a development science, Europace is a European symposium, begun in of the twentieth century. With the description and , and has occurred every second year since.

The 2 nd edition of Catheter Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias, written by Shoei K. Stephen Huang, MD and Mark A. Wood, MD, provides you with the most comprehensive and detailed coverage of the latest ablation techniques, from direct-current to radiofrequency to cryoenergy. It offers the latest information on anatomy, diagnostic criteria. Arrhythmia, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or heart arrhythmia, is a group of conditions in which the heartbeat is irregular, too fast, or too slow. The heart rate that is too fast – above beats per minute in adults – is called tachycardia, and a heart rate that is too slow – below 60 beats per minute – is called bradycardia. Some types of arrhythmias have no Problems with the electrical conduction . Feb 15,  · From anatomy and diagnostic criteria through specific mapping and ablation techniques, Catheter Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias, 4th Edition, covers all you need to know in this fast-changing field. Ideal for practitioners who need a comprehensive, user-fPages: Nov 01,  · This all makes this book a reference for a large variety of health care professionals and a good foundation for those needing a broad and thorough approach to the diagnosis and the most appropriate management of cardiac arrhythmias.” (British Journal of Cardiology, 1 March ).

This book covers all the major aspects associated with pathophysiological development of cardiac arrhythmias (covering enhanced or suppressed automaticity, triggered activity, or re-entry), from basic concepts through disease association, limitations of current pharmacotherapy and implant therapies. Arrhythmias and their Management. In book: Nursing the Cardiac Patient, pp with its concept of intensive monitoring of patients who have cardiac arrhythmias, to understanding the. Cardiac arrhythmias can also be classified as bradyar-rhythmias or tachyarrhythmias. Bradycardia may be caused by depressed function of the SA node or disor-ders of conduction. Tachycardia may be the result of cel-lular mechanisms such as re-entry or automaticity. This book discusses bradycardias and tachycardias under each. Types of Cardiac Arrhythmia. The origin and heart rate are used to help classify cardiac arrhythmias. Fast (over beats per minute) heart rhythms are described by the term Tachycardia. Tachycardias can originate in the atria or ventricles. Atrial arrhythmias begin in the atria (also called supraventricular).
