Basis and Treatment of Cardiac Arrhythmias by M.J. Janse, M.R. Rosen (auth.)

By M.J. Janse, M.R. Rosen (auth.)

This ebook contains the main up-to date info concerning mechanisms and remedy of cardiac arrhythmia. the various subject matters mentioned during this textual content mirror very lately undertaken learn instructions together with genetics of arrhythmias, cellphone signalling molecules as capability healing ambitions and trafficking to the membrane. those new techniques and implementations of anti-arrhythmic treatment derive from many a long time of study as defined within the first bankruptcy by way of exclusive Professors Michael Rosen (Columbia collage) and Michiel Janse (University of Amsterdam). The textual content covers alterations in techniques to remedy over the years, arrhythmias in a number of cardiac areas and over many scales, from gene to protein to cellphone to tissue to organ.

The Official Patient's Sourcebook on Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

This publication has been created for sufferers who've made up our minds to make schooling and study a vital part of the therapy approach. even though it additionally provides info worthwhile to medical professionals, caregivers and different well-being pros, it tells sufferers the place and the way to seem for info protecting almost all subject matters on the topic of restrictive cardiomyopathy (also cardiomyopathy - restrictive; infiltrative cardiomyopathy), from the necessities to the main complicated parts of analysis.

Brain Protection in Cardiac Surgery: Volume 1

Mind damage is still some of the most dreaded problems of cardiac surgical procedure. the variety of harm is huge; whereas a stroke should be simply outlined and clinically determined, extra sophisticated accidents most probably take place. There is still debate as to how those are clinically determined and there's a loss of ordinary definitions permitting inter-study comparability.

Basis and Treatment of Cardiac Arrhythmias

The 1st version of this instruction manual seemed precisely twenty-five years in the past. as a result of huge, immense adjustments within the zone of diuretics, the second one version has needed to be thoroughly revised. monstrous development has been made within the sensible anatomy of the kidney and within the thoughts of the way ingredients and ions are in particular transported around the a variety of nephron segments.

As already mentioned, Lewis later changed his mind and supported re-entry as the mechanism (Lewis 1920). The circus movement theory held the field for a long time until Scherf in 1947 revived the theory of the rapidly firing focus. He applied aconitine focally to the atrium and in this way could cause atrial fibrillation. Later experiments by Moe and Abildskov (1959) showed that, after application of aconitine to the atrial appendage, clamping off the appendage resulted in restoration of sinus rhythm, whereas the clamped-off appendage exhibited a rapid, regular tachycardia.

The 42 I. S. Cohen · R. B. Robinson so-called pacemaker current, I f , generated by the HCN gene family, best fits these criteria. The biophysical and molecular characteristics of this current are reviewed, and progress to date in developing selective pharmacologic agents targeting I f and in using gene and cell-based therapies to modulate the current are reviewed. Keywords Sino-atrial node · Automaticity · Pacemaker · HCN · Arrhythmia · Pharmacologic selectivity 1 Introduction The sino-atrial (SA) node is the specialized region of the cardiac right atrium where the heartbeat originates.
