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 field, the newly developed non-contact technique, magnetocardiography, was established to detect the local magnetic field component of the heart. It is safe and more convenient. In this study, we try to define and validate the magnetocardiographic patterns in the patients with cardiac arrhythmias or ischemia.

Aims Approximately 20-25% of strokes are of cardioembolic origin, atrial fibrillation (AF) being a significant cause of cardioembolic strokes. AF is often symptomless and intermittent, mak...
To describe the clinical indications for Reveal XT in diagnosis and continuous monitoring of arrhythmia and to explore the clinical applications and outcome of arrhythmia monitoring on pat...
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.
Participants in the Dyno arm were instructed to undertake once-day recording and transmission of a 30-second single-lead iECG trace to a secure server, plus additional submissions if sympt...
Junctional and AV nodal reentrant tachycardia share common electrocardiographic features, but they differ in their management and outcomes after catheter ablation. This case concerns a 60-year-old fem...
Pulmonary artery-derived ventricular arrhythmia is gradually being recognized, which in a clinical context is recognized as an arterial ectopic beat. Our study aimed to provide new insights on the epi...
This meta-analysis was conducted to evaluate the association between Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medications and risk of sudden death/arrhythmia, stroke, myocardial infarction as w...
The Osborn or J-wave, an upright deflection of the J-point on the electrocardiogram (ECG), is often observed during severe hypothermia. A possible relation between Osborn waves (OW) and increased risk...
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) complicated by arrhythmia is a risk factor for exacerbating AMI disease and high fatality rate. The ability of the organism to resist oxidative stress is weak and the...
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 naturally occurring variation in heart rate that occurs during a BREATHING cycle, where the time between heartbeats is shortened during inspiration and prolonged during expiration. It is not the same as SINUS ARRHYTHMIA, the disorder.
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 calcium channel blocker that is a class IV anti-arrhythmia agent.
A derivative of the rauwolfia alkaloid AJMALINE. It is an anti-arrhythmia agent, but may cause liver damage.
