  • adverse
  • Incidence of an atrial-fibrillation or atrial flutter related adverse event at 5 days from the index ED visit. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Main outcome measures Cox proportional hazards regression was used to compute the intention to treat hazard ratio (as a measure of the incidence rate ratio) of major adverse cardiovascular events within 30 days of initiation. (bmj.com)
  • Results The adverse event rate among diclofenac initiators increased by 50% compared with non-initiators (incidence rate ratio 1.5, 95% confidence interval 1.4 to 1.7), 20% compared with paracetamol or ibuprofen initiators (both 1.2, 1.1 to 1.3), and 30% compared with naproxen initiators (1.3, 1.1 to 1.5).

  • reentrant
  • This article focuses on the most common types of paroxysmal SVT: atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT), atrioventricular reciprocating tachycardia (AVRT), and atrial tachycardia (AT). (aafp.org)
  • Heart
  • In many studies atrial fibrillation has been associated with advanced age, 1-4 7 17 congestive heart failure, poor left ventricular function, 1 2 7 18 19 and extensive myocardial infarction. (bmj.com)
  • Atrial tachycardia is a general term that indicates a cardiac condition where the rate of contraction of the heart's atria is fast and not normal, but does not describe the type of heart rhythm other than fast. (medicinenet.com)
  • What are the differences in how atrial flutter and AFib affect the heart (ECG wave strip patterns)? (medicinenet.com)
  • The event rate for diclofenac initiators increased for each component of the combined endpoint (1.2 (1.1 to 1.4) for atrial fibrillation/flutter, 1.6 (1.3 to 2.0) for ischaemic stroke, 1.7 (1.4 to 2.0) for heart failure, 1.9 (1.6 to 2.2) for myocardial infarction, and 1.7 (1.4 to 2.1) for cardiac death) as well as for low doses of diclofenac, compared with non-initiators.

  • My atrial flutter trigger seems to be when I excersize and increase my heart rate. (medhelp.org)
  • Of note, it is also possible to get yourself out of atrial fibrillation by exercising and increasing your heart rate to the point that it overrides the atrial fibrillation. (medhelp.org)
  • If exercise is precipitating frequent atrial fibrillation, instead of focusing on avoiding exercise or limiting your heart rate, I would work with your physician on improving your control of atrial fibrillation. (medhelp.org)
  • RESULTS
  • 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.

  • rate ratio
  • Compared with no use, the incidence rate ratio associating current drug use with atrial fibrillation or flutter was 1.33 (95% confidence interval 1.26 to 1.41) for non-selective NSAIDs and 1.50 (1.42 to 1.59) for COX 2 inhibitors. (bmj.com)
  • Among new users, the adjusted incidence rate ratio was 1.46 (1.33 to 1.62) for non-selective NSAIDs and 1.71 (1.56 to 1.88) for COX 2 inhibitors. (bmj.com)
  • common
  • This study, the first population-based investigation of atrial flutter, suggests this curable condition is much more common than previously appreciated. (onlinejacc.org)
  • annually
  • If our findings were applicable to the entire U.S. population, we estimate 200,000 new cases of atrial flutter in this country annually. (onlinejacc.org)
  • Approximately 27 000 people in the UK and 500 000 people in the USA undergo coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) annually, 25-30% of whom develop atrial fibrillation (AF) postoperatively. (bmj.com)
