The purpose of this study is to determine if Maestro can be used to detect heart arrhythmias, specifically atrial fibrillation in humans. Maestro will be used to measure heart rate and rhythm at the same time that patients are being monitored with a standard 3, 5, or 12 lead electrocardiogram (ECG) in a clinical setting. The recorded Maestro results will be compared to the ECG results to assess Maestro's accuracy.
Data will be analyzed by a pass/fail criterial. The data will be downloaded and printed for the investigators' interpretation who will first review and code the data from Meastro, blinded to the ECG findings. Then the investigators will interpret the ECG findings and the 2 sets of data will be compared. The ECG result is the true value with which to compare the Maestro result.

The primary purpose of this study is to improve the quality of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in patients with heart arrhythmia. Investigators will recruit 105 patients with arrhythmia and 30 ...
Prospective, multicenter, non-randomized study to determine the performance of NUVANT Mobile Cardiac Telemetry system in arrhythmia detection.
To compare the effectiveness of various drugs and drug combinations in suppressing complex ventricular arrhythmias, and to evaluate their safety.
ECG is one of the most important non-invasive method to diagnose CAD and arrhythmia. However, clinically it still has its limitation. Because the electrical field could induce a magnetic f...
This study is a prospective, non-randomized, multi-center study of subjects implanted with an SJM pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), and cardiac resynchronization th...
Arrhythmia is a common complication after heart surgery and is a major source of morbidity and mortality.
The objective was to assess the transient association between air pollution and cardiac arrhythmia. Five databases were searched for studies investigating the association between daily increases in ai...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a risk factor for arrhythmias in patients with heart failure (HF). However, the effects of CKD on ventricular arrhythmia burden in patients with cardiac resynchronizati...
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in the pediatric population is a rare and potentially devastating occurrence. An understanding of the differential diagnosis for the etiology of the cardiac arrest allows f...
Heart disease produces substantial remodeling of K(+) channels that in general promotes arrhythmia occurrence. In the case of ventricular arrhythmias, K(+) channel remodeling contributes to the arrhyt...
Agents used for the treatment or prevention of cardiac arrhythmias. They may affect the polarization-repolarization phase of the action potential, its excitability or refractoriness, or impulse conduction or membrane responsiveness within cardiac fibers. Anti-arrhythmia agents are often classed into four main groups according to their mechanism of action: sodium channel blockade, beta-adrenergic blockade, repolarization prolongation, or calcium channel blockade.
A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.
Abnormally rapid heartbeat, usually with a HEART RATE above 100 beats per minute for adults. Tachycardia accompanied by disturbance in the cardiac depolarization (cardiac arrhythmia) is called tachyarrhythmia.
A potent anti-arrhythmia agent, effective in a wide range of ventricular and atrial arrhythmias and tachycardias. Paradoxically, however, in myocardial infarct patients with either symptomatic or asymptomatic arrhythmia, flecainide exacerbates the arrhythmia and is not recommended for use in these patients.
A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature contractions of the HEART VENTRICLES. It is characterized by the premature QRS complex on ECG that is of abnormal shape and great duration (generally >129 msec). It is the most common form of all cardiac arrhythmias. Premature ventricular complexes have no clinical significance except in concurrence with heart diseases.
