Abstract

To assess the characteristics and outcomes of patients admitted to an ICU for severe accidental hypothermia, and to identify risk factors for mortality. All consecutive patients admitted to an ICU between January 1, 1979, and July 31, 1998, with a temperature of < or = 32 degrees C were...read more

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.

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.

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.
