  • amiodarone
  • New antiarrhythmic drug strategies include more atrial selective agents, drugs similar to amiodarone but with a less toxic profile, or drugs with novel mechanisms of action, such as gap junction facilitation of conduction. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • Measures
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the associations of traditional risk factors and longitudinal measures of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease severity with risk of incident atrial fibrillation (AF) in a contemporary cohort of HIV-infected individuals. (nih.gov)
  • reentrant
  • It is a reentrant atrial tachyarrhythmia that is dependent on unidirectional block and slow conduction through the isthmus of right atrial tissue between the tricuspid annulus and the inferior vena cava. (ahajournals.org)
  • efficacy
  • SAN FRANCISCO, CA -Srikanth Vallurupalli, MD, and colleagues from the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences, Little Rock, AR presented results at ACC.13, the American College of Cardiology's 62nd Annual Scientific Session, in support of intravenous (IV) magnesium significantly enhancing the efficacy of ibutilide in atrial fibrillation conversion and flutter.

  • study
  • Our study thus adds evidence that atrial fibrillation or flutter needs to be added to the cardiovascular risks to be considered when prescribing NSAIDs. (bmj.com)
  • During Year 1 of this study, Brigham and Women's Hospital will design an alert-based CDS program to notify the individual clinician in a private electronic message that his or her hospitalized patient is at risk for stroke due to AF or atrial flutter. (centerwatch.com)
  • conduction
  • Atrial flutter is a health condition that causes the atria of the heart to have a conduction or electrical problem that result in a re-entry loop in a regular pattern the causes the atria to beat at a rapid rate of about 240-360 beats per minute (bpm). (medicinenet.com)
  • Often, the flutter waves are not completely transferred through the AV node to the ventricular heart chambers so occasionally electrical conduction blocks occur and produce a 2:1, 3:1 or 4:1 ventricular contraction rate that is mainly regular. (medicinenet.com)
  • The most common atrial flutter occurs when the atria beat at a rate of 300 bpm and ventricular contraction rate is 150 bpm (2:1 conduction). (medicinenet.com)
