Current role of amiodarone in antiarrhythmic therapy

Herzschrittmachertherapie & Elektrophysiologie

Nov 26, 2010

C Sohns, M Zabel

Abstract

Decades after its registration, amiodarone is still regarded as the most effective antiarrhythmic drug available for the treatment of tachyarrhythmias. Amiodarone is classified as a class III antiarrhythmic drug. In addition to the prolongation of cardiac repolarization, its leading pha...read more

Peripheral Nervous System Diseases

Peripheral nervous system diseases cover a wide spectrum of disease affecting the peripheral nerves, with the most common being diabetic neuropathy. Discover the latest research on peripheral nervous system diseases here.

Supraventricular Arrhythmias

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.

Complications of Diabetes

This feed focuses on the complications of diabetes, including diabetic nephropathy, ketoacidosis, cardiomyopathy, and neuropathy.

Ventricular Arrhythmias

Ventricular arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms that originate in the lower part of the heart. Find the latest research on ventricular arrhythmias here.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.

Heart Rhythm & Arrythmias

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.

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.

Reflex Epilepy

Reflex epilepsy is a type of epilepsy caused by a certain stimulus. The most common reflex epilepsy is photosensitive epilepsy, brought on by flashing lights. Discover the latest research on reflex epilepsy here.

Organellar TRP channels

Orangellar TRP channels are transient receptor potential (TRP) channels mediate Ca2+ flux and voltage changes across membranes in response to environmental and cellular signals. Discover the latest research on organellar TRP channels here.

Depression

Depression, also known as major depressive disorder, is a medical condition associated with negative emotional, behavioural, and cognitive symptoms. Here is the latest research on this mood disorder.

Anti-Arrhythmic Drug Therapies

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.

Selective Ion Transport in Channels & Pumps

Ion channels and pumps are central to a number of cell functions, including membrane excitability and synaptic transmission. With sophisticated imaging, these channels and pumps have been characterized as selective for the ions, sodium, potassium chloride and calcium. Here is the latest research on selection ion transport in channels and pumps.

American Thoracic Society: Clinical Problems

This feed has been developed in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society for the benefit of its Clinical Problems Assembly. It highlights new and impactful papers on clinical therapeutics, diagnoses, and practices pertaining to respiratory disease.

Drug-Induced Diseases

Drug-induced diseases (DID) also called as iatrogenic diseases. Most of these DIDs are largely preventable, if strict vigilance and proper periodic clinical and diagnostic monitoring are undertaken

Arrhythmia

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.

Antiarrhythmic Agents: Mechanisms of Action

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.
