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.

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.

Telemetry is a way of recording your heart’s rate and rhythm. A transmitter is used to send this information to a monitor at the nurses’ station. The recording happens while you are awake as well as while you are asleep. This pamphlet answers questions such as why telemetry is done, where and how it is done, and what to do if you have any problems. The French version of this pamphlet 1893, "Télésurveillance", is also available.
