      INTRODUCTION. Atrial tachycardia (AT) is a regular atrial rhythm at a constant rate of > beats per minute originating outside of the sinus node [].Focal ATs arise from a single site within the left or right atrium, in contrast to macroreentrant atrial arrhythmias (eg, atrial flutter) and atrial fibrillation, which involve multiple sites or larger circuits. Atrial flutter has rapid (– atrial beats/min) but regular atrial activation. Ventricular response usually has a regular pattern and a pulse of beats/min. This arrhythmia occurs less frequently than AF but has similar precipitating factors, consequences, and drug therapy.

While the exact mechanisms are still poorly understood, associations with a number of cardiac (e.g., valvular heart disease, coronary artery disease) and noncardiac (e.g., hyperthyroidism, electrolyte.

Atrial arrhythmia, also called supraventricular arrhythmia, begins in the upper chambers of the heart and includes: Atrial Fibrillation (sometimes called "afib"): A disorganized rhythm in the atria and the most common arrhythmia, affecting more than 4 million Americans.

With atrial fibrillation, the heart's upper chambers beat irregularly, affecting blood flow to the heart muscle and to the. What is an arrhythmia. The American Heart Association has information about Atrial Fibrillation, quivering heart, Bradycardia, slow heart rate, Premature contraction, Tachycardia, fast beat, Ventricular Fibrillation, fluttering heart, Rhythm Disorders, treatment of arrhythmia, symptoms of arrhythmia, diagnosis of arrhythmia, monitoring the heart, and much more.

"This book presents a concise and simplified approach to the diagnosis and management of abnormalities in cardiac rhythm. One of the book's strengths is the number and quality of electrocardiographic tracings" "This book about cardiac arrhythmias is of much educational value" Atrial fibrillation: ablation, drugs, rate control versus.

Mercy Health This book is a comprehensive and practical updated review about the various aspects of cardiac arrhythmias. Benign atrial tachycardia is a common arrhythmia in elderly people. It is paroxysmal in nature, has an atrial rate of beats/min and an abrupt onset and cessation, and is brief in duration.

Incessant ectopic atrial tachycardia is a rare chronic arrhythmia in children and young by:   Atrial tachycardia. Atrial tachycardia is the least common type of supraventricular tachycardia.

It's generally seen in children with underlying heart disorders such as congenital heart disease, particularly those who've had heart surgery. Atrial tachycardia may also be triggered by factors such as an infection or drug or alcohol use. An atrial arrhythmia is an abnormality that occurs in one of the two upper chambers of the heart, the left or right atrium.

An arrhythmia is a change in the heart’s normal rate or rhythm, normally between 60 and beats per minute. Arrhythmias are classified by their. ATRIAL FRUSTRATION: A Cardiac Arrhythmia Saga.

Kindle $ $ 78 to rent $ to buy. Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia. Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia is just a faster version of Wandering Atrial Pacemaker.

The criteria is the same as Wandering Atrial Pacemaker with the only difference being the heart rate exceeds bpm. These changes in the locus of stimulation within the atria affect the morphology of the P waves. Book • 4th Edition • Authors: Focal AT may result in the initiation of other atrial arrhythmias such as atrial macroreentry or atrial fibrillation if the rate of focal firing is particularly rapid along with the development of secondary atrial remodeling.

Focal AT is frequently unresponsive to. With its unique, singular focus on the clinical aspect of cardiac arrhythmias, Clinical Arrhythmology and Electrophysiology: A Companion to Braunwald's Heart Disease makes it easy to apply today's most up-to-date guidelines for diagnosis and treatment.

An expert author team provides clear, clinically focused guidance on all types of cardiac arrhythmias, including practical techniques for. Organized by type of arrhythmia, this simple yet comprehensive medical reference book provides detailed information on anatomy, diagnoses, mapping/ablation, and troubleshooting.

The book also extensively covers the updated, basic concepts of transcatheter energy applications and currently available mapping/imaging tools for ablation. The book is designed to assist a wide variety of medical professionals (e.g., anesthesiologists, internists, surgeons, doctors in training, nurses, and cardiac technicians) to identify arrhythmias using tracings.

In addition, the book offers summary advice on treating each by: 9. Atrial tachycardia (AT) is a type of abnormal heart rhythm, or arrhythmia. It occurs when the electrical signal that controls the heartbeat starts from an unusual location in the upper chambers (atria) and rapidly repeats, causing the atria to beat too quickly.

ECG Features of Atrial Tachycardia. Atrial rate > bpm. P wave morphology is abnormal when compared with sinus P wave due to ectopic origin. There is usually an abnormal P-wave axis (e.g. inverted in the inferior leads II, III and aVF) At least three consecutive identical ectopic p waves.

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). In adults a tachycardia is any heart rate greater than beats per minute. Supraventricular tachycardias may be divided into two distinct groups depending on whether they arise from the atria or the atrioventricular junction.

This article will consider those arising from the atria: sinus tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and atrial tachycardia.

with coexistent atrial arrhythmias. This combination is termed sick sinus syndrome (SSS) or tachy-brady syndrome. 15– Parameters ♥ ♥ Normal QRS and T waves ♥ ♥P waves may change in appearance ♥♥ Absent or delayed beat, followed by normal conduction ♥♥ Heart rate slows during arrest, then may accelerate to normal or.

Arrhythmias can be classified by their origin (atria or ventricles) and by heart rate. Tachycardia. A fast (over beats per minute) heart rate is called tachycardia. Tachycardias can originate in the atria or ventricles.

Supraventricular (atrial) arrhythmias include: Atrial fibrillation, which is a chaotic, fast heart rhythm. Fairly common. "Electrophysiological Foundations of Cardiac Arrhythmias by Wit, Josephson, and Wellens is a long overdue text bridging basic science and clinical medicine, thus providing basic scientists, clinical investigators and practicing physicians, unique insights into the mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmias.

Atrial arrhythmias remain the most challenging of arrhythmias from all view points. From mechanism to management there exists a significant debate, which is constantly evolving. The arrhythmia, though not life threatening, results in significant morbidity and a significant usage of health care resources at a world-wide level.

This book covers all aspects from epidemiology to newer management.Arrhythmias in Women: Diagnosis and Treatment draws upon the experience of national leaders in the field of women's heart disease to address the unique aspects involved in the diagnosis and treatment of women with arrhythmias and implantable device therapy.

Written by distinguished consultants in the Division of Cardiovascular Diseases of Mayo Clinic, this book provides a concise and up-to.These arrhythmias are tachycardias that occur in the atria or the atrioventricular (AV) node, specialized tissue that conducts electrical signals from the atria to the ventricles.

Types of supraventricular arrhythmias include: Atrial fibrillation (AFib): Irregular, rapid heartbeat that can be intermittent, long lasting, or permanent.
