Douglas L. What you do to help people through this [A-Fib] process is really incredible. Hugh G. I certainly recommend it for patients who want to know more about atrial fibrillation than what they will learn from doctors She loves it and finds it very useful to help her in dealing with atrial fibrillation. You managed to combine an encyclopedic compilation of information with the simplicity of presentation that enhances the delivery of the information to the reader.

Understanding the EKG Signal

Atrial fibrillation EKG examples - wikidoc

Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia encountered in clinical practice. Misdiagnosis of atrial fibrillation carries significant implications for patients. Fibrillation of the atria may result in a chaotic disturbance of the isoelectric line, however, this finding on an ECG can be misleading as muscular activity or agitation can cause a similar appearance. Equally, it can often be difficult to tell if P waves are present or not on an ECG.

Atrial fibrillation AF is a common heart rhythm disorder caused by degeneration of the electrical impulses in the upper cardiac chambers atria resulting in a change from an organized heart rhythm to a rapid, chaotic rhythm. The resulting arrhythmia is often rapid and irregular with no discernible pattern known as irregularly irregular. The disrupted rhythm occurs because of the unpredictable conduction of disordered impulses across the electrical bridge, called the atrioventricular AV node, to the lower cardiac chambers ventricles.
Atrial Fibrillation AF is the most common sustained arrhythmia. Characterized by disorganized atrial electrical activity and contraction. The incidence and prevalence of AF is increasing. Complications of AF include haemodynamic instability, cardiomyopathy, cardiac failure, and embolic events such as stroke.
