Arrhythmias after acute myocardial infarction. Evaluation and management of rhythm and conduction abnormalities

Postgraduate Medicine
P J Podrid


Patients with myocardial infarction can experience a wide range of arrhythmias and conduction abnormalities, from transient and relatively innocuous sinus bradycardia to life-threatening ventricular fibrillation. This nut-and-bolts article covers all the possibilities, emphasizing the clinical significance of the various arrhythmias and their evaluation and treatment. Also included are indications for temporary and permanent pacemaker placement based on the revised ACC/AHA guidelines.

Atrial Fibrillation

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.


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.


Bradyarrhythmias are slow heart rates. Symptoms may include syncope, dizziness, fatigure, shortness of breath, and chest pains. Find the latest research on bradyarrhythmias here.
