Cardiac Arrest in a Physician-Directed Cardiac Rehabilitation Program: A Clinical and Angiographic Profile of Two Cases
- THE EFFECTS OF CHRONIC VENTRICULAR PACING OF THE HUMAN CONDUCTION SYSTEM. Gould, Lawrence; Reddy, C. V. R.; Gomprecht, Robert F. // Angiology;Mar1975, Vol. 26 Issue 3, p252
Six cardiac patients had His bundle electrograms obtained prior to ventricular pacing. Hours to days after constant pacing, repeat His bundle electrograms were obtained. The H-Q interval increased after pacing in 5 of the 6 patients. The average H-Q interval of 55.8 msec increased to the post...
- Mechanisms Contributing to Arrhythmogenesis During Early Myocardial Ischemia, Subsequent Reperfusion, and Chronic Infarction. Corr, Peter B.; Pogwizd, Steven M. // Angiology;Jul1988 Part 2, Vol. 39 Issue 7, p684
This article presents information on coronary artery disease. Sudden cardiac death in the setting of coronary artery disease is usually secondary to the abrupt onset of a lethal arrhythmia--most commonly ventricular tachycardia leading to ventricular fibrillation. Sudden cardiac death is a...
- Self-Terminating Ventricular Fibrillation During Variant Angina. Cafri, Carlos; Ilia, Reuben; Battler, Alexander // Angiology;Jul1998, Vol. 49 Issue 7, p581
The authors present a case report of self-terminating ventricular fibrillation during an episode of variant angina. The causes of ventricular fibrillation in this disorder and the possible mechanisms for its rare spontaneous interruption are discussed.
- Outcomes After Ventricular Fibrillation Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest: Expanding the Chain of Survival. Bunch, T. Jared; Hammill, Stephen C.; White, Roger D. // Mayo Clinic Proceedings;Jun2005, Vol. 80 Issue 6, p774
Coronary heart disease is the most common cause of death in the United States, with ventricular fibrillation (VF) the most common initial rhythm when cardiac disease causes arrest. Survival after VF out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) depends on a sequence of events called the chain of...
- PRECISE VENTRICULAR DEFIBRILLATION (VF) THRESHOLD ASSESSMENT USING ONLY THREE FIBRILLATION INDUCTIONS--THE WESSEX PROTOCOL. Paisey, J. R.; Yue, A. M.; Betts, T. R.; Morgan, J. M.; Roberts, P. R. // Heart;May2004 Supplement 2, Vol. 90, pA21
This article focuses on a study related to precise ventricular defibrillation (VF) threshold assessment using only three fibrillation inductions. Ventricular defibrillation threshold (DFT) assessment in clinical studies is usually limited by the ethical requirement to limit VF inductions. The...
- Prognosis and Treatment of Ventricular Arrhythmias Following Myocardial Infarction. Laidlaw, Douglas W.; Homoud, Munther K.; Weinstock, Jonathan; Estes III, N. A. Mark; Link, Mark S. // Current Cardiology Reviews;2007, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p23
Ventricular arrhythmias are common in the setting of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). In today's era of reperfusion therapy, anti-arrhythmic medications, and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs), an understanding of these arrhythmias and the prognosis of patients with these...
- ECGs made easier than ever: Lethal strips. Hammond, Cecile // RN;Jan80, Vol. 43 Issue 1, p54
Provides information on premature ventricular contraction (PVC), caused by irritability in the ventricles. Occurrence of death from ventricular fibrillation; Most dangerous type of PVC; Treatment for ventricular fibrillation; Examples of dysrhythmias caused by ventricular irritability.
- The tooth, the whole tooth, and nothing but the tooth: can dental pain ever be the sole presenting symptom of a myocardial infarction? A systematic review. // British Dental Journal;6/13/2014, Vol. 216 Issue 11, p639
Despite frequent claims to the contrary, there is little evidence that dental pain could be the only symptom for cardiac insufficiency.
- Brain Mechanisms in Fatal Cardiac Arrhythmia. Hook, Paul G.; Smith, Vernon; Wolf, Stewart G. // Integrative Physiological & Behavioral Science;Jan-Mar99, Vol. 34 Issue 1, p3
Presents information on a study which suggested that sudden death due to cardiac arrest or ventricular fibrillation results from excitation of the central nervous system rather from a peripheral mechanism such as hypoxia. Methods of the study; Results and discussion; Conclusions.
