Cardiac arrhythmia

Cardiac arrhythmia

 

  • 24- or 72-hour ECG (Holter)
  • Recording of arrhythmias by the patient
  • Electrical cardioversion of arrhythmias
  • Implantation of pacemakers
  • Implantation of event recorders
  • Monitoring and programming of pacemakers, defibrillators (ICD) and event recorders
  • ECG examination under antiarrhythmic drugs

 

Using firmly glued electrodes, cardiac currents are continuously deduced and then evaluated by the doctor with the help of a computer. This is important in case of a slow or fast heartbeat. In selected cases, patients receive a small device for a certain period (e.g. one week) in order to record arrhythmias that occur less frequently. Some disorders of heart rhythm (especially atrial fibrillation) can be best treated best when a brief shock is delivered via electrodes applied to the thorax following a five-minute anaesthetic. This process is not stressful for the heart and is highly successful in treating certain problems. If the heart beats too slowly, an electronic device consisting of a very shallow control unit with a diameter of approx. 5 cm and one or two cables is permanently implanted in the heart. The control unit is usually implanted under the skin. The operation is performed under local anaesthesia. In cases of unexplained loss of consciousness, unexplained arrhythmias, or stroke, an unobtrusive device can be implanted under the skin. This can detect and record all cardiac arrhythmias that occur over several months. This surgery is performed under local anaesthesia and takes only a few minutes. Several types of electronic devices to monitor heart action or to control the heart are checked and adjusted at regular intervals (usually every six months). At times, certain disorders are shown only under the influence of drugs, and sometimes the risk of a patient can be better assessed. The agent is injected into an alert patient under comprehensive monitoring.
