Drug-related arrhythmias during therapy of congestive heart failure

Cardiovascular Drugs and Therapy

Abstract

It is now recognized that ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias are serious complications of congestive heart failure. There are four possible drug-related mechanisms: diuretic-induced electrolyte imbalance; digitalis-induced arrhythmias; use of sympathomimetic agents; and drug interactions with digoxin. In selecting optimal therapy for congestive heart failure all these drug interactions need to be borne in mind.

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.

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.
