In this study, ECGs were evaluated before and after the usage of salbutamol and ipratropium bromide. Patients were evaluated before and after 4 weeks of treatment :1) salbutamol, 90 mcg 1 puffs every 4 hours 2) Ipratropium Bromide, 34 mcg 2 puffs every 6 hours. ECGs performed pre-treatment and at 4th Week. We were able to find various arrhythmias such as atrial tachycardia, atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. 60 ECGs recordings in 30 treated patients (M=F). Out of 30 patients, ECG changes recorded in 28 patients. The most common met ECG was with atrial tachycardia in 20 patients out of which 12 were females (6...

Publication date: Available online 4 September 2019Source: Pharmacological ResearchAuthor(s): Enrico Paolini, Giulia Stronati, Federico Guerra, Alessandro CapucciAbstractOver the last 35 years, flecainide proved itself one of the most commonly used arrhythmic drugs, expanding its original indication for ventricular arrhythmias and results nowadays as the cornerstone of the rhythm control strategy in atrial fibrillation management of patients without structural heart disease. While the increased mortality associated with flecainide in the Cardiac Arrhythmia Suppression Trial (CAST) still casts his shadow over flecainide cli...

AbstractDespite major therapeutic advances over the last decades, complex supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias (VAs), particularly in the emergency setting or during revascularization for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), remain an important clinical problem. Although the incidence of VAs has declined in the hospital phase of acute coronary syndromes (ACS), mainly due to prompt revascularization and optimal medical therapy, still up to 6% patients with ACS develop ventricular tachycardia and/or ventricular fibrillation within the first hours of ACS symptoms. Despite sustained VAs being perceived predictors of wors...

CONCLUSION: Findings from the review suggest that long-term, continuous, uninterrupted monitoring with Zio results in longer patient wear times and higher cardiac arrhythmia detection rates compared with outcomes reported in previous reviews of short-duration (24-48 hours) cardiac rhythm recording studies.

Arrhythmias are common in horses. Sinus arrhythmia and first- and second-degree atrioventricular block are frequently found physiologic arrhythmias, but should immediately disappear after stress or exercise. Atrial premature depolarizations are usually not associated with poor performance, but are a potential trigger for atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation results in an abnormal ventricular response during exercise and poses a risk for collapse in some horses. This arrhythmia can usually be treated by quinidine sulfate or transvenous electrical cardioversion. Ventricular premature depolarizations, especially when asso...

Publication date: March 2019Source: Canadian Journal of Cardiology, Volume 35, Issue 3Author(s): Judith Brouillette, Samuel Cyr, Céline FisetAbstractLong-term survival of HIV-infected patients has significantly improved with the use of antiretroviral therapy (ART). As a consequence, cardiovascular diseases are now emerging as an important clinical problem in this population. Sudden cardiac death is the third leading cause of mortality in HIV patients. Twenty percent of patients with HIV who died of sudden cardiac death had previous cardiac arrhythmias including ventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, and other...

AbstractObjectivePatients with electrical injury are considered to be at high risk of cardiac arrhythmias. Due to the small number of studies, there is no widely accepted guideline regarding the risk assessment and management of arrhythmic complications after electrical accident (EA). Our retrospective observational study was designed to determine the prevalence of ECG abnormalities and cardiac arrhythmias after EA, to evaluate the predictive value of cardiac biomarkers for this condition and to assess in-hospital and 30-day mortality.MethodsConsecutive patients presenting after EA at the emergency department of our instit...
