- What is Atopic Atrial Arrhythmia?
This article will define and discuss an atopic atrial arrhythmia, its symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.
- An Overview of Right Atrial Enlargement
Are you looking for more information about right atrial enlargement? Here we will talk about what causes it and how it is treated.
- Premature Atrial Complexes: What Are They?
Premature atrial complexes are caused by abnormal electrical impulses transmitted by the atria (either of the upper chambers of the heart). The abnormal electrical impulses cause contractions of the upper chamber of the heart earlier than expected. Such premature beats are generally harmless.
- Diastolic Murmur as a Complication of Mild Aortic Insufficiency
A diastolic murmur can occur when there is backward flow of blood from the aorta. This blood enters the left ventricle to produce a characteristic murmur heard on auscultation.
- Ventricular Tachycardia Secondary to Coronary Artery Disease
Ventricular tachycardia and coronary artery disease are both serious conditions. However, not many people might be aware of the link between ventricular tachycardia secondary to coronary artery disease. As the size of the lumen of the coronary artery decreases, tachycardia can result.
- The Use of a Pacemaker to Manage Heart Arrhythmia
The physician may recommend to a patient the use of a pacemaker for heart arrhythmias. The good news is, the health risks of a pacemaker implantation are low.
- Treatment Options for Atrial Fibrillation
Treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) includes medications, and surgical and nonsurgical procedures to correct the irregular heart rhythms. Read the following article to learn about the treatments and risks associated with AF.
- An Overview of Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia
Polymorphic ventricular tachycardia is a potentially fatal heart rhythm which occurs when the ventricles fail to work properly. This article discusses causes, treatment and the warning symptoms.
- Ventricular Flutter Versus Ventricular Fibrillation
The heart is the organ responsible for supplying the body with oxygenated blood and removing carbon dioxide from the body by causing circulation of the blood. This article will explain the difference between ventricular flutter versus ventricular fibrillation, both types of heart arrythmia.
- What Are Heart Palpitations?
