Common disease conditions related to Electrophysiology

Atrial fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation

This is an irregular , fast heart rhythm in the upper chambers of the heart. This is irregular and often very rapid that leads to blood clots in the heart. Symptoms include palpitations ( sensation of fast , fluttering or pounding heartbeat), chest pain, dizziness, fatigue, lightheadedness, shortness of breath, inability to exercise. This may be occasional, persistant or lasts longer than 12 months or permanent. Medications can help to control the heart beat.

Bradycardia
Bradycardia

This is the heart beat that is too slow. The heart of adults at rest usually beat between 60 to 100 times a minute. In bradycardia the rate falls below 60 and can be a serious problem as the heart can’t pump enough oxygen rich blood to the body. Symptoms include chest pain, memory problem due to insufficient blood supply to brain, easily tiring during physical activity, shortness of breath. Mostly settles with medicine if severe pacemaker may be needed to help the heart maintain an appropriate rate.

Tachycardia
Tachycardia

This is the heart beat that is too fast. In tachycardia the heart rate lies above 100 beats per minute. Heart rate generally rises during exercise or as a response to stress. But in tachycardia one has high heart rate even at rest. Usually does not cause any symptoms. But if untreated may lead to heart failure, stroke or other heart health issues. Treatment for tachycardia may include specific maneuvers, medication, cardioversion or surgery to control a rapid heartbeat.

Wolf-parkinson-white syndrome
Wolf-parkinson-white syndrome

This is a condition with extra electrical pathway between the hearts upper chamber and lower chamber and causes a rapid heartbeat. This is the heart condition present from birth. The most common symptom is heart rate above 100 per minute with chest pain, difficulty breathing, anxiety and shortness of breath. In infants it may cause symptoms like pale or faded skin colour, cyanosis, rapid breathing and poor eating. Treatment includes special medication, a shock to the heart or catheter procedure to stop the irregular heart rhythm.

Ventricular Fibrillation
Ventricular Fibrillation

During ventricular fibrillation abnormal heart signals cause the lower chamber to shake slightly. This is a dangerous fluttering of the heart muscle that doesn’t let the heart pump blood. This condition can be fatal. Its an emergency and needs immediate medical attention. Symptoms include collapse and loss of consciousness.
