Atrial fibrillation is when the chambers of the heart (the atria) fibrillate (quiver). This can cause a rapid, irregular heart rhythm. This pamphlet reviews the causes and treatment of this heart problem. Catheter ablation is a non-surgical procedure that may be used when medication is not controlling your heart rhythm or symptoms. This pamphlet reviews how catheter ablation is done, risks, what to expect after your procedure, activities to avoid, and signs and symptoms to watch for.

Brugada syndrome is a rare condition where there are changes in the electrical signals that make the heart beat. In Brugada syndrome, the channels in the heart cells do not work properly. The abnormal opening and closing of the channels can lead to dangerous heart rhythms. The heart may beat so fast that it cannot pump blood out to the body. This can cause collapse and, if the rhythm does not stop, sudden death. The pamphlet provides the causes, symptoms, diagnostic tests, treatments and some g…

Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) : Inherited Heart Disease (IHD) Clinic

View Pamphlet
In CPVT, the channels don’t have a normal response to adrenaline. This causes extra heartbeats to start in the bottom chambers of the heart. This can make the heart beat fast. It might beat so fast that it does not pump blood out to the body. This can cause collapse and, if the rhythm does not stop, sudden death. The pamphlet provides the causes, symptoms, diagnostic tests, treatments, and some general activity guidelines. Websites for further information are also listed.

This book is an evaluation of heart rate variability (HRV), the tendency for the heart rate to oscillate, increasing and decreasing depending on a number of factors. Such oscillations can give information on the state of the complex systems involved and can reveal a higher mortality risk. The author discusses the basic functional structures responsible for HRV and the evidence for this. In addition, the book provides a framework to understand HRV within the perspective of systems biology and pr…

Abstract
This book is an evaluation of heart rate variability (HRV), the tendency for the heart rate to oscillate, increasing and decreasing depending on a number of factors. Such oscillations can give information on the state of the complex systems involved and can reveal a higher mortality risk. The author discusses the basic functional structures responsible for HRV and the evidence for this. In addition, the book provides a framework to understand HRV within the perspective of systems biology and presents basic principles and related mathematical models. Heart Rate Variability provides a thorough investigation of the clinical aspects of the concept, defining the level of risk, the practical management algorithms and clarification of the common mechanisms, such as heart rate turbulence. As such, this book will be of interest to all involved in the research and management of all the cardiovascular conditions related to this phenomenon.
