Over 15 million people in this country suffer from cardiac arrhythmias from time to time. These "clock errors" of the organ are usually asymptomatic and rarely cause any symptoms. However, they can be signs of serious diseases or precede them. Timely diagnosis and treatment of this abnormality is therefore essential for your health.
Our doctors at Avi Medical are on hand to help you with all your medical needs in the fight against cardiac arrhythmias at all our locations.
Cardiac arrhythmia is an abnormality of the organ in which it beats either too fast, too slow or irregularly (for example, three fast beats followed by a beat "pause"). Also known as cardiac stuttering).
Abnormalities of speed are divided into tachycardic (frequency too high) and bradycardic (frequency too low). The clinical picture also distinguishes between two possible sites of origin of the abnormalities. There are supraventricular disorders, which begin in a structure above the ventricles, and ventricular disorders, which develop in the ventricle.
Cardiac arrhythmias are always diagnosed by an ECG. Bradycardia is present as soon as the organ beats less than sixty times per minute. This form of abnormality is divided into the following subgenera :
Tachycardia is again diagnosed at a rate of one hundred beats per minute and is further divided into the following sub-genres:
