Sample text

It can cause hypotension, impair cardiac output, exacerbate pulmonary congestion, initiate myocardial ischemia, and in rare cases may lead to a tachycardia-mediated cardiomyopathy [2]. Symptoms commonly experienced by individuals with AFl include palpitations, dizziness, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and fatigue. However, some individuals are asymptomatic. Management of Patients with AFl Essentially, the treatment of AFl involves treating the fast heart rate, converting to or maintaining normal sinus rhythm, and reducing the risk of thromboembolic events that predispose to stroke.

A possible ceiling on its use is that it requires an experienced cardiac electrophysiologist plus comprehensive catheterization facilities. However, the long-term cost-effectiveness of CCA versus alternative treatment options will likely support the wider use of this curative option. Acknowledgements All data were analyzed by an independent organization (ATLAS Medical Research, Miami, FL, USA). For disclosure purposes, this organization has previously analyzed data and compiled biomedical and regulatory documentation for medical device, pharmaceutical, and biotech companies, as well as university groups involved in various areas of medical research.

In those with less frequent or asymptomatic recurrences with controlled heart rate, the major concern becomes the risk of proarrhythmic events [2]. The risk of therapy must be balanced by the known adverse effect of anti-arrhythmic medication and the benefit from its utilization. Where to initiate anti-arrhythmic therapy is another important issue. There are two major reasons to initiate drug therapy in-hospital: to observe the effects of anti-arrhythmic agents on the arrhythmia being treated, and to permit surveillance for adverse reaction to the drugs.
