Cardiac Electrophysiology & Arrhythmias
Anti-arrhythmic drugs are used to prevent abnormal heart rhythms. These medications are used in conditions including, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation and atrial fibrillation. Discover the latest research on anti-arrhythmic drug therapies here.
Understanding the mechanism of action of antiarrhythmic agents is essential in developing new medications as treatment of cardiac arrhythmias is currently limited by the reduced availability of safe and effective drugs. Discover the latest research on Antiarrhythmic Agents: Mechanism of Action here.
Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
Bradyarrhythmias are slow heart rates. Symptoms may include syncope, dizziness, fatigure, shortness of breath, and chest pains. Find the latest research on bradyarrhythmias here.
Cardiac amyloidosis is a myocardial disease characterized by extracellular amyloid infiltration throughout the heart. Discover the latest research on cardiac amyloidosis here.
Cardiac electrophysiology is the study of electrical activities of the heart and includes the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiac events. Find the latest research on cardiac electrophysiology here.
Cardiotoxicity refers to the muscle damage or dysfunction of heart electrophysiology caused by drug intake or due to disease complications. It is a well-known side effect of several cytotoxic drugs, especially of the anthracyclines and can lead to long term morbidity. Here is the latest research.
Coronary vasospasm is the abnormal contraction of the coronary arteries on the epicardium. The constriction can lead to myocardial ischemia and life threatening cardiac arrhythmias. Discover the latest research on coronary vasospasms here.
Electrocardiogram (ECG) can be used in combination with deep learning techniques for biosignal analysis as a means for computer guided diagnosis. Here is the latest research on ECG and deep learning.
Heart arrhythmias, also known as irregular heartbeat or cardiac dysrhythmia, are a group of conditions where the heartbeat is irregular (dysrhythmia), too slow (bradycardia), or too fast (tachycardia). Discover the latest research on heart rhythm and arrythmias here.
Myocardial infarctions occur when blood flow to a part of the heart decreases or stops. Here is the latest research on factors and mechanisms that modulate the risk of myocardial infarctions.
Right axis deviation is detected from the direction of electrical depolarisation on an electrocardiogram. This is an indication of some underlying pathological mechanism such as right bundle branch block, rhythm abnormality and lateral myocardial infarction. Here is the latest research on right axis deviation.
Supraventricular arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms, typically faster than normal rhythms, that originate in the upper part of the heart. Find the latest research on supraventricular arrhythmias here.
Ventricular arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms that originate in the lower part of the heart. Find the latest research on ventricular arrhythmias here.
