This pamphlet is a French translation of "Catheter Ablation" pamphlet 0636. This pamphlet describes what to expect before, during, and after catheter ablation. This pamphlet explains catheter ablation, how the heart works, and how to get ready for the procedure. The pamphlet outlines what will happen during hospital admission, in the EP lab, and after the ablation. Answers to common questions you may have are provided. Finally, the pamphlet explains what to do if you start to bleed at the puncture site(s), and when you should contact your family doctor or go to the nearest Emergency Department.

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.

Abstract
The past 50 years have witnessed the growth and evolution of clinical electrophysiology from a field whose goals were simply to understand of the mechanisms of arrhythmia to one of significant therapeutic impact. The development and refinement of implantable devices and catheter ablation have made non-pharmacological therapy a treatment of choice for most arrhythmias encountered in clinical practice. Cardiac Arrhythmias: From Basic Mechanism To State-of-the-Art Management provides an electrophysiologic approach to arrhythmias predicated on the hypothesis that a better understanding of the mechanisms of arrhythmias will lead to more successful and rationally chosen therapy. It encompasses the anatomy of arrhythmias, diagnostic methods, comorbid diseases, and the treatment of all forms of cardiac arrhythmias. It discusses modern ablation and mapping techniques, while reviews the methodology required to define the mechanism and site of origin of arrhythmias, so that safe and effective therapy can be chosen. It will thus be of interest to all involved in the management of these patients, from clinical cardiac electrophysiologists themselves to clinical cardiologists, interventionalists, cardiac surgeons, emergency medicine physicians and researchers in basic cardiac science.

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.
