Abstract

An increased awareness of fetal arrhythmias by obstetricians has resulted in a growing number of diagnosed cases of fetal cardiac problems. A fetus with atrial flutter diagnosed at 31 weeks of gestation was successfully converted to normal sinus rhythm in utero by maternal administration with digitalis. The fetal heart rate stayed in a normal rhythm with a maintenance dose of 0.5 mg/day. The fetus was delivered spontaneously at term and the neonatal heart rate has been in normal rhythm without any medical treatment.

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.

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.
