There have been some changing concepts in the physiology of the atrial tachyarrhythmias. Recent work confirms the presence of conduction pathways in the atria and also confirms the importance of ectopic foci in the genesis of rapid atrial arrhythmias. The general approach to diagnosis is referred to and specific reference is made to the diagnosis of the common atrial tachyarrhythmias. The importance and increasing incidence of chaotic atrial tachycardia is emphasised.

    Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a frequent cause of death and may occur even if the electrocardiogram seems to be similar to that of a healthy individual. A method which not only identifies the risk but also provides an estimate of the time of an impending cardiac arrest is proposed. Analyzing 159...
