Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology

Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology

Arrhythmia disrupts normal heartbeats due to altered electrical impulses, leading to irregular rhythms like tachycardia or bradycardia. Prevention involves managing blood pressure, cholesterol, weight, and a heart-healthy diet. Drugs for arrhythmia include Amiodarone, Flecainide, Lidocaine, Beta-blockers, and Theophylline. Electrophysiology, a neuroscience branch, studies cellular electrical properties to diagnose Arrhythmic conditions and sudden cardiac arrest, using tests like Electrocardiograms, Echocardiograms, and Electrophysiology studies.
