Cardiac arrhythmias that are characterized by excessively slow HEART RATE, usually below 50 beats per minute in human adults. They can be classified broadly into SINOATRIAL NODE dysfunction and ATRIOVENTRICULAR BLOCK.
Irregular HEART RATE caused by abnormal function of the SINOATRIAL NODE. It is characterized by a greater than 10% change between the maximum and the minimum sinus cycle length or 120 milliseconds.
The number of times the HEART VENTRICLES contract per unit of time, usually per minute.
The small mass of modified cardiac muscle fibers located at the junction of the superior vena cava (VENA CAVA, SUPERIOR) and right atrium. Contraction impulses probably start in this node, spread over the atrium (HEART ATRIUM) and are then transmitted by the atrioventricular bundle (BUNDLE OF HIS) to the ventricle (HEART VENTRICLE).
A condition caused by dysfunctions related to the SINOATRIAL NODE including impulse generation (CARDIAC SINUS ARREST) and impulse conduction (SINOATRIAL EXIT BLOCK). It is characterized by persistent BRADYCARDIA, chronic ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and failure to resume sinus rhythm following CARDIOVERSION. This syndrome can be congenital or acquired, particularly after surgical correction for heart defects.
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY.
Small kinetoplastid mitochondrial RNA that plays a major role in RNA EDITING. These molecules form perfect hybrids with edited mRNA sequences and possess nucleotide sequences at their 5'-ends that are complementary to the sequences of the mRNA's immediately downstream of the pre-edited regions.
A transient absence of spontaneous respiration.
Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.
The 10th cranial nerve. The vagus is a mixed nerve which contains somatic afferents (from skin in back of the ear and the external auditory meatus), visceral afferents (from the pharynx, larynx, thorax, and abdomen), parasympathetic efferents (to the thorax and abdomen), and efferents to striated muscle (of the larynx and pharynx).
Organized services to provide information on any questions an individual might have using databases and other sources. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)
Heart sounds caused by vibrations resulting from the flow of blood through the heart. Heart murmurs can be examined by HEART AUSCULTATION, and analyzed by their intensity (6 grades), duration, timing (systolic, diastolic, or continuous), location, transmission, and quality (musical, vibratory, blowing, etc).
Unanticipated information discovered in the course of testing or medical care. Used in discussions of information that may have social or psychological consequences, such as when it is learned that a child's biological father is someone other than the putative father, or that a person tested for one disease or disorder has, or is at risk for, something else.
Act of listening for sounds within the heart.
A transient loss of consciousness and postural tone caused by diminished blood flow to the brain (i.e., BRAIN ISCHEMIA). Presyncope refers to the sensation of lightheadedness and loss of strength that precedes a syncopal event or accompanies an incomplete syncope. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp367-9)
Graphic registration of the heart sounds picked up as vibrations and transformed by a piezoelectric crystal microphone into a varying electrical output according to the stresses imposed by the sound waves. The electrical output is amplified by a stethograph amplifier and recorded by a device incorporated into the electrocardiograph or by a multichannel recording machine.
Hypersecretion of THYROID HORMONES from the THYROID GLAND. Elevated levels of thyroid hormones increase BASAL METABOLIC RATE.
Tumors or cancer of the THYROID GLAND.
A highly vascularized endocrine gland consisting of two lobes joined by a thin band of tissue with one lobe on each side of the TRACHEA. It secretes THYROID HORMONES from the follicular cells and CALCITONIN from the parafollicular cells thereby regulating METABOLISM and CALCIUM level in blood, respectively.
A syndrome that results from abnormally low secretion of THYROID HORMONES from the THYROID GLAND, leading to a decrease in BASAL METABOLIC RATE. In its most severe form, there is accumulation of MUCOPOLYSACCHARIDES in the SKIN and EDEMA, known as MYXEDEMA.
A common form of hyperthyroidism with a diffuse hyperplastic GOITER. It is an autoimmune disorder that produces antibodies against the THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE RECEPTOR. These autoantibodies activate the TSH receptor, thereby stimulating the THYROID GLAND and hypersecretion of THYROID HORMONES. These autoantibodies can also affect the eyes (GRAVES OPHTHALMOPATHY) and the skin (Graves dermopathy).
Agents that are used to treat hyperthyroidism by reducing the excessive production of thyroid hormones.
The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.
Method in which prolonged electrocardiographic recordings are made on a portable tape recorder (Holter-type system) or solid-state device ("real-time" system), while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It is useful in the diagnosis and management of intermittent cardiac arrhythmias and transient myocardial ischemia.
A voluntary organization concerned with the prevention and treatment of heart and vascular diseases.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

Effect of the cannabinoid receptor agonist WIN55212-2 on sympathetic cardiovascular regulation. (1/860)

1. The aim of the present study was to analyse the cardiovascular actions of the synthetic CB1/CB2 cannabinoid receptor agonist WIN55212-2, and specifically to determine its sites of action on sympathetic cardiovascular regulation. 2. Pithed rabbits in which the sympathetic outflow was continuously stimulated electrically or which received a pressor infusion of noradrenaline were used to study peripheral prejunctional and direct vascular effects, respectively. For studying effects on brain stem cardiovascular regulatory centres, drugs were administered into the cisterna cerebellomedullaris in conscious rabbits. Overall cardiovascular effects of the cannabinoid were studied in conscious rabbits with intravenous drug administration. 3. In pithed rabbits in which the sympathetic outflow was continuously electrically stimulated, intravenous injection of WIN55212-2 (5, 50 and 500 microg kg(-1)) markedly reduced blood pressure, the spillover of noradrenaline into plasma and the plasma noradrenaline concentration, and these effects were antagonized by the CB1 cannabinoid receptor-selective antagonist SR141716A. The hypotensive and the sympathoinhibitory effect of WIN55212-2 was shared by CP55940, another mixed CB1/CB2 cannabinoid receptor agonist, but not by WIN55212-3, the enantiomer of WIN55212-2, which lacks affinity for cannabinoid binding sites. WIN55212-2 had no effect on vascular tone established by infusion of noradrenaline in pithed rabbits. 4. Intracisternal application of WIN55212-2 (0.1, 1 and 10 microg kg(-1)) in conscious rabbits increased blood pressure and the plasma noradrenaline concentration and elicited bradycardia; this latter effect was antagonized by atropine. 5. In conscious animals, intravenous injection of WIN55212-2 (5 and 50 microg kg(-1)) caused bradycardia, slight hypotension, no change in the plasma noradrenaline concentration, and an increase in renal sympathetic nerve firing. The highest dose of WIN55212-2 (500 microg kg(-1)) elicited hypotension and tachycardia, and sympathetic nerve activity and the plasma noradrenaline concentration declined. 6. The results obtained in pithed rabbits indicate that activation of CB1 cannabinoid receptors leads to marked peripheral prejunctional inhibition of noradrenaline release from postganglionic sympathetic axons. Intracisternal application of WIN55212-2 uncovered two effects on brain stem cardiovascular centres: sympathoexcitation and activation of cardiac vagal fibres. The highest dose of systemically administered WIN55212-2 produced central sympathoinhibition; the primary site of this action is not known.  (+info)

Hypoxia inhibits baroreflex vagal bradycardia via a central action in anaesthetized rats. (2/860)

It is known that arterial baroreflexes are suppressed in stressful conditions. The present study was designed to determine whether and how hypoxia affects arterial baroreflexes, especially the heart rate component, baroreflex vagal bradycardia. In chloralose-urethane-anaesthetized rats, baroreflex vagal bradycardia was evoked by electrical stimulation of the aortic depressor nerve, and the effect of 15 s inhalation of hypoxic gas (4% O2) was studied. Inhalation of hypoxic gas was found to inhibit baroreflex vagal bradycardia. The inhibition persisted after bilateral transection of the carotid sinus nerve. Cervical vagus nerves were cut bilaterally and their peripheral cut ends were stimulated to provoke vagal bradycardia of peripheral origin so as to determine whether hypoxia could inhibit vagal bradycardia by acting on a peripheral site. In contrast to baroreflex vagal bradycardia, the vagus-induced bradycardia was not affected by hypoxic gas inhalation. It is concluded that baroreflex vagal bradycardia is inhibited by hypoxia and the inhibition is largely mediated by its direct central action.  (+info)

Pseudo second degree atrioventricular block with bradycardia. Successful treatment with quinidine. (3/860)

Pseudo second degree atrioventricular block resulting from blocked His premature beats was successfully treated with quinidine. The diagnosis was proved by His bundle electrogam which showed both blocked and conducted His premature beats. The blocked His prematures produced second degree atrioventricular block by making the atrioventricular junction refractory. Quinidine abolished both conducted and blocked His extrasystoles. There has been no recurrence of arrhythmia during a one-year follow-up.  (+info)

Incidence of bradycardia during recovery from spinal anaesthesia: influence of patient position. (4/860)

We administered 0.5% plain bupivacaine 4 ml intrathecally (L2-3 or L3-4) in three groups of 20 patients, according to the position in which they were nursed in the post-anaesthesia care unit (PACU): supine horizontal, 30 degrees Trendelenburg or hammock position (trunk and legs 30 degrees elevated). Patients were observed until anaesthesia descended to less than S1. The incidence of severe bradycardia (heart rate < 50 beat min-1) in the PACU was significantly higher in patients in the Trendelenburg position (60%) than in the horizontal (20%, P < 0.01) or hammock (10%, P < 0.005) position. After 90 min, following admission to the PACU, only patients in the hammock position did not have severe bradycardia. In this late phase, the incidence of severe bradycardia in the Trendelenburg group was 35% (P < 0.005) and 10% in patients in the supine horizontal position. In four patients, severe bradycardia first occurred later than 90 min after admission to the PACU. The latest occurrence of severe bradycardia was recorded 320 min after admission to the PACU. We conclude that for recovery from spinal anaesthesia, the Trendelenburg position should not be used and the hammock position is preferred.  (+info)

Relation between mode of pacing and long-term survival in the very elderly. (5/860)

OBJECTIVES: This study analyzes the relationship between pacing mode and long-term survival in a large group of very elderly patients (> or = 80 years old). BACKGROUND: The relationship between pacing mode and long-term survival is not clear. Because the number of very elderly who are candidates for pacing is increasing, issues related to pacemaker (PM) use in the elderly have important clinical and economic implications. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 432 patients (mean age, 84.5+/-3.9 years) who received their initial PM (ventricular in 310 and dual chamber in 122) between 1980 and 1992. Follow-up was complete (3.5+/-2.6 years). Observed survival was estimated by the Kaplan-Meier method. Age- and gender-matched cohorts from the Minnesota population were used for expected survival. Log-rank test and Cox regression hazard model were used for univariate and multivariate analyses. RESULTS: Patients with ventricular PMs appeared to have poor overall survival compared with those with dual-chamber PMs. Observed survival after PM implantation in high grade atrioventricular block (AVB) patients was significantly worse than expected survival of the age- and gender-matched population (p < 0.0001), whereas observed survival of patients with sinus node dysfunction was not significantly different from expected survival of the matched population (p = 0.413). By univariate analysis, ventricular pacing in patients with AVB appeared to be associated with poor survival compared with dual-chamber pacing (hazard ratio [HR] 2.08; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.33 to 3.33). After multivariate analysis, this difference was no longer significant (HR 1.41; 95% CI 0.88 to 2.27). Independent predictors of all-cause mortality were number of comorbid illnesses, New York Heart Association functional class, left ventricular depression and older age at implant. Pacing mode was not an independent predictor of overall survival. Older age at implantation, diabetes mellitus, dementia, history of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and earlier year of implantation were independent predictors of ventricular pacemaker selection. CONCLUSIONS: After PM implantation, long-term survival among very elderly patients was not affected by pacing mode after correction of baseline differences. Selection bias was present in pacing mode in the very elderly, with ventricular pacing selected for sicker and older patients, perhaps partly explaining the apparent "beneficial impact on survival" observed with dual-chamber pacing.  (+info)

Relative bradycardia is not a feature of enteric fever in children. (6/860)

We investigated pulse-temperature relationships in 66 children with enteric fever (group 1) and in 76 with other infections (group 2). Group 1 children were older than group 2 children (mean age +/- SD, 91 +/- 36 vs. 66 +/- 32 months, respectively; P < .001) and had mean oral temperatures +/- SD similar to those of group 2 children (38.3 +/- 1.0 vs. 38.3 +/- 0.9 degrees C, respectively; P > .2); however, group 1 children had lower mean baseline pulse rates +/- SD than did group 2 children (119 +/- 25 vs. 127 +/- 28 beats/min, respectively; P < .001). In a multiple linear regression model, pulse rate was independently associated with age (inversely; P < .001) and oral temperature (positively; P < .006) but not with diagnostic group or gender (P > .5). After adjustment of the mean initial pulse rate +/- SD to age of 72 months, there was no difference between group 1 and group 2 children (126 +/- 24 vs. 126 +/- 20 beats/min, respectively; P > .5). From 4 to 72 hours after commencement of treatment, the mean oral temperature in group 1 patients was approximately 0.3 degrees C higher than that in group 2 patients, and the age-adjusted pulse rate was 5 beats/min higher in group 1 children than in group 2 children. These data suggest that relative bradycardia is not characteristic of enteric fever in children.  (+info)

Estrogen enhancement of baroreflex sensitivity is centrally mediated. (7/860)

We have recently shown that estrogen enhances baroreceptor control of reflex bradycardia in conscious rats. The present study replicated this finding in pentobarbital sodium-anesthetized rats, and the study was extended to investigate whether this effect of estrogen is centrally or peripherally mediated. Hemodynamic responses to electrical stimulation of the central end of the aortic depressor or the vagal efferent nerve were evaluated in pentobarbital sodium-anesthetized sham-operated (SO), ovariectomized (OVX), and OVX estradiol-treated Sprague-Dawley rats. Phenylephrine (1-16 microgram/kg iv) elicited dose-dependent pressor and bradycardic responses. Regression analysis of the baroreflex curves, relating changes in mean arterial pressure and heart rate, revealed a significantly smaller baroreflex sensitivity in OVX compared with SO anesthetized rats (-0.54 +/- 0.05 and -0.91 +/- 0.12 beats. min-1. mmHg-1, respectively; P < 0.05). Treatment of OVX rats with 17beta-estradiol (E2, 50 microgram. kg-1. day-1 for 2 days subcutaneously) significantly enhanced baroreflex sensitivity to a level similar to that of SO rats (P < 0.05). The enhancing effect of E2 on the baroreflex-mediated bradycardia, observed in conscious and anesthetized rats, seems to be selective because the baroreflex-mediated tachycardic responses measured in a separate group of conscious rats were not altered by ovariectomy or E2 administration. Electrical stimulation of the aortic nerve elicited frequency-dependent depressor and bradycardic responses that were significantly smaller in OVX compared with SO values (P < 0.05). Treatment of OVX rats with E2 restored the hemodynamic responses to aortic stimulation to near SO levels. On the other hand, hemodynamic responses to vagal stimulation were not affected by OVX or treatment with E2. These findings suggest that enhancement of reflex bradycardia by estrogen is centrally mediated and involves interaction with central projections of the aortic nerve.  (+info)

Electrocardiographic abnormalities in a murine model injected with IgG from mothers of children with congenital heart block. (8/860)

BACKGROUND: It is a widely held view that congenital heart block (CHB) is caused by the transplacental transfer of maternal autoantibodies (anti-SSA/Ro and/or anti-SSB/La) into the fetal circulation. To test this hypothesis and to reproduce human CHB, an experimental mouse model (BALB/c) was developed by passive transfer of human autoantibodies into pregnant mice. METHODS AND RESULTS: Timed pregnant mice (n=54) were injected with a single intravenous bolus of purified IgG containing human anti-SSA/Ro and anti-SSB/La antibodies from mothers of children with CHB. To parallel the "window period" of susceptibility to CHB in humans, 3 groups of mice were used: 8, 11, and 16 days of gestation. Within each group, we tested 10, 25, 50, and 100 microg of IgG. At delivery, ECGs were recorded and analyzed for conduction abnormalities. Bradycardia and PR interval were significantly increased in 8-, 11-, and 16-day gestational groups when compared with controls (P<0.05). QRS duration was not significantly different between all groups. Antibody levels measured by ELISA in both mothers and their offspring confirmed the transplacental transfer of the human antibodies to the pups. CONCLUSIONS: The passive transfer model demonstrated bradycardia, first-degree but not complete atrioventricular block in pups. The greater percentage and degree of bradycardia and PR prolongation in the 11-day mouse group correlates with the "window period" of susceptibility observed in humans. The high incidence of bradycardia suggests possible sinoatrial node involvement. All together, these data provide relevant insights into the pathogenesis of CHB.  (+info)

1. Cardiac natriuretic peptides act on cardiopulmonary chemoreceptor afferents to enhance the von Bezold-Jarisch reflex (BJR). Activity of the natriuretic peptide particulate guanylyl cyclase receptor is essential for full expression of the BJR. Whether natriuretic peptides act directly on cardiac afferents or they require another intermediate factor(s) for their effects on the BJR is unknown. Endogenous candidates tested as possible intermediates in the present study were prostanoids and nitric oxide (NO), plausible endogenous chemical mediators of cardiac chemoreflex activity. 2. Dose-dependent BJR bradycardia was evoked by the 5-HT(3) receptor agonist, phenylbiguanide (range 5-89 μg/kg), in conscious instrumented adult sheep (n = 6). The influence of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP; the most potent of the natriuretic peptides) on the BJR was assessed before and after blockade of prostanoids (using indomethacin, 1 mg/kg per h i.v.) or nitric oxide (using N-nitro-l-arginine (NOLA), 3 mg/kg ...

Temporary pacing was required in 28% (n=43) of the population, mainly those with CAVB, of whom 53% (n=23) required permanent pacemaker implantation.. Patients in whom bradyarrhythmia was resolved without need for pacemaker implantation were significantly more likely to present renal failure (24 vs. 5; p=0.001). Most patients who did not need pacemaker implantation had hypertension (Table 1).. Four patients died during hospitalization, three before pacemaker implantation and one after. No deaths were recorded in patients after discharge without pacemaker implantation.. Discussion. In this population, most patients required pacemaker implantation after iatrogenic drug discontinuation and/or correction of potentially reversible causes of bradyarrhythmias.. The proportion of patients with atrioventricular block who discontinue drug therapy and still need pacemaker implantation is unknown, as is the prognosis of these patients after hospital discharge without a pacemaker.2 There are few data on the ...
In general patients who show a sinus bradycardia on their ECG will show little other signs and symptoms depending on the rate of their rhythm and any co-factors such as an acute coronary syndrome, pain, injuries, etc. Most patients will appear well perfused with good skin colour, warmth and no diaphoresis. If patients are on common blood pressure medications such as Beta Blockers it is likely that these will have artificially lowered the persons heart rate and that their normal resting heart rhythm is a sinus bradycardia.. In general, patients who have a sinus bradycardia are not hypotensive. This is because as we learned in Starlings Law, the slower the heart rate the greater time allowed for ventricular filling (which is passive), ventricular stretching (pre-load) and subsequent cardiac output.. ...

Treatment of symptomatic bradycardia is largely algorithm-based, regardless of cause. Acting quickly to treat the bradycardia takes precedence over determining the cause. Once you have initiated treatment, proceed to determine the cause and correct, if possible (See section on Management of Bradycardia in the OR).. Decide whether the patient has adequate or poor perfusion, since the treatment sequence is determined by the severity of the patients clinical presentation. In the OR or anesthetized patient:. * If severe hypotension, persistent poor perfusion, or low ETCO2 (,15mm Hg)-, start CPR. * Administer 100% Oxygen, assist ventilation, open IV fluids, and secure airway. * Consider 0.5mg atropine IV while awaiting pacer. May repeat to total 3mg. If ineffective, begin transcutaneous pacing.. * Consider IV bolus Epinephrine 10-100mcg. May start low dose epinephrine infusion if a response (0.05-0.10 mcg/kg/min) or dopamine (2-10mcg/kg/min). * Prepare for transcutaneous pacing: use without delay ...

The device is indicated for the treatment of the following conditions:1) Symptomatic paroxysmal or permanent second- or third-degree AV block;2) Symptomatic bilateral bundle branch block;3) Symptomatic paroxysmal or transient sinus node dysfunction with or without associated AV conduction disorders (i.e., sinus bradycardia, sinus arrest, sinoatrial [SA] block);4) Bradycardia-tachycardia syndrome, to prevent symptomatic bradycardia or some forms of symptomatic tachyarrhythmias; and5) Neurovascular (vaso-vagal) syndromes or hypersensitive carotid sinus syndromes.Adaptive-rate pacing is indicated for patients exhibiting chronotropic incompetence and who may benefit from increased pacing rates concurrent with increases in minute ventilation and/or level of physical activity.Dual-chamber and atrial tracking modes are also indicated for patients who may benefit from maintenance of AV synchrony.Dual chamber modes are specifically indicated for ...
Sinus bradycardia is a type of slow heartbeat. A special group of cells begin the signal to start your heartbeat. These cells are in the sinoatrial (SA) node. Normally, the SA node fires at about 60 to 100 times per minute at rest. In sinus bradycardia, the node fires less than 60 times per minute.
Bradyarrhythmias occur commonly in the ICU, and most events do not necessitate temporary pacing. Transient bradycardia often occurs in the setting of enhanced vagal tone due to tracheal irritation, suction, or intubation; abdominal distention; or severe vomiting. Reversible causes such as severe electrolyte or acid-base imbalances should be corrected first whenever possible, as this may obviate the need for pacing or enhance the likelihood that a temporary lead will function appropriately when placed. Isolated sinus pauses, transient extended pauses in atrial fibrillation (AF), and nocturnal bradycardia in patients with obstructive sleep apnea are all common, and generally do not require temporary pacing. Pacing is considered when patients are having symptoms or have developed hemodynamic compromise thought to be secondary to a bradyarrhythmia, or if a rhythm is detected that is associated with a high risk of subsequent malignant bradyarrhythmia (Table 103-1). Recognizing circumstances that ...
The Bezold-Jarisch reflex (also called the Jarisch-Bezold reflex or Von Bezold-Jarisch) involves a variety of cardiovascular and neurological processes which cause hypopnea (excessively shallow breathing or an abnormally low respiratory rate) and bradycardia (abnormally low resting heart rate). Prolonged upright posture results in some degree of pooling of blood in the lower extremities that can lead to diminished intracardiac volume. This phenomenon is exacerbated if the individual is dehydrated. The resultant arterial hypotension is sensed in the carotid sinus baroreceptors, and afferent nerve fibers from these receptors trigger autonomic signals that increase cardiac rate and contractility. However, pressure receptors in the wall and trabeculae of the underfilled left ventricle may then sense stimuli, activating high-pressure C-fiber afferent nerves from these receptors. They may respond by sending signals that trigger paradoxical bradycardia and decreased contractility, resulting in ...
We found a point prevalence of people with ictal asystole of 0.32%. In contrast, two small prospective studies (both n=19) with long-term implantable heart rhythm monitors up to 2 years reported a much higher prevalence of 5% and 21%.14 ,15 These contrasting figures suggest that ictal asystole does not occur during every seizure and may go unnoticed during short-term monitoring.. Ictal asystole, ictal bradycardia and ictal AV block coincided with a focal dyscognitive seizure and were predominantly seen in temporal lobe epilepsy. These three arrhythmias not only shared a similar clinical profile, but could also overlap. Both ictal bradycardia and ictal AV block may evolve into asystole.. It has been suggested that a seizure onset in the left hemisphere results in bradycardia and that a right-sided onset results in tachycardia.2 We did not, however, find a consistent lateralisation in the large group of ictal asystole and ictal bradycardia cases. In the small group of ictal AV block cases, there ...

Since the effects of bradycardia after cardiac transplantation are not known, we tested the hypothesis that perioperative bradycardia would lead to an increase in adverse outcomes after cardiac transplantation. We conducted a retrospective case control study with inclusion criterion of a heart rate (HR) less than 80 bpm during the 1st week after transplantation. Control patients were matched for gender, age and time since transplantation. We identified 34 patients as having perioperative bradycardia out of the 174 who underwent cardiac transplantation between 1994 and 1997. The results demonstrated no significant differences in donor ischemic times (180 vs. 183, p = 0.88), operative surgeon (p = 0.62) or pretransplant cardiac disease (p = 0.81) between groups. Bradycardic patients were more likely to be on pretransplant amiodarone (RR = 20.4, p < 0.001). Perioperative bradycardia did not lead to increases in cellular rejection (p = 0.72) or vasculopathy (p = 0.79). The patients prescribed ...
Advanced age is, unsurprisingly, one of the most important predisposing factors for adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and ADR-related hospital admissions. Elderly patients are more often on polypharmacy and have more extensive comorbidity, which increase the risk of ADRs through drug-drug or drug-disease interactions and abnormal pharmacokinetics. The higher prevalence of cognitive impairment and functional deficits in this group of patients also impacts on treatment adherence and tolerability. Among elderly patients in particular, ADRs are associated with increased morbidity and mortality.1,2 The most frequent ADRs are typically caused by cardiovascular drugs,3 and a significant percentage of all ADRs involve the cardiovascular system, the most frequent drug-related cardiovascular abnormality probably being bradycardia.4 This is commonly referred to as a type of proarrhythmia. Proarrhythmia can result from a direct effect of the drug on the electrophysiological properties of the conduction system, ...
Abstract:. Each heartbeat is initiated by cyclic spontaneous depolarization of cardiomyocytes in the sinus node forming the primary natural pacemaker. In patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis, it was recently shown that the heart rate drops to very low values before they suffer from sudden cardiac death with an unexplained high incidence. We hypothesize that the electrolyte changes commonly occurring in these patients affect sinus node beating rate and could be responsible for severe bradycardia. To test this hypothesis, we extended the Fabbri et al. computational model of human sinus node cells to account for the dynamic intracellular balance of ion concentrations. Using this model, we systematically tested the effect of altered extracellular potassium, calcium, and sodium concentrations. Although sodium changes had negligible (0.15 bpm/mM) and potassium changes mild effects (8 bpm/mM), calcium changes markedly affected the beating rate (46 bpm/mM ionized calcium without ...
Percussion pacing involves using ones fist to repeatedly strike a patients left sternal border in a rhythmic manner. The resulting increase in ventricular pressure can trigger myocardial depolarization and subsequent contraction. We describe the successful treatment of acute preoperative symptomatic sinus bradycardia with percussion pacing in a 63-year-old patient scheduled for placement of a gastric feeding tube after trauma involving spinal cord injury. Although no longer included in current advanced cardiovascular life support guidelines, percussion pacing may be a suitable alternative to chest compressions in multitrauma cases where the force of compressions could cause further complications ...

Doctors give trusted, helpful answers on causes, diagnosis, symptoms, treatment, and more: Dr. Fowler on what can relieve symptoms of bradycardia: If people have symptomatic bradycardia ie dizzy light headedness etc. The may need a pacemaker. If pts heart rates are low around 30 beats per minute or have 3sec pauses or longer and arent on any thing like beta blockers etc a pacemaker will help keep the heart rate at a programmed rate to prevent symptoms.
Normal range of heart rates in the afternoon has been reported to be 46 to 93 beats per minute for men, and 51 to 95 beats per minute for women.. Nocturnal rates are slower, decreasing during sleep by an average of 24 beats per minute in young adults and by 14 beats in those over 80 years of age. Trained athletes are prone to bradycardia (slow pulses) with heart rates below 40 beats per minute common at rest. In view of these findings, the American Heart Association current guidelines for pacemaker implantation (a battery powered,lithium-iodine type, electronic,pulse generating device embedded under the skin of the chest, just below the right clavicle usually, and connected to the right atrium and/or ventricle by a sterile wire, which is guided through the cephalic vein) advise the following:. 1. Episodes of sinus bradycardia with heart rates as low as 30 beats per minute, which cause no symptoms, are to be considered with in the normal range.. 2.Also,normal are sinus pauses (no P waves) of up ...

An apparatus and method for controlling pulse energy in an arrythmia control device wherein bradycardia pacing pulses are normally delivered at a first energy, and after antitachycardia therapy, bradycardia pulses are delivered at a second energy, the second energy being greater than the first energy. The antitachycardia therapy may be at least one of antitachycardia pacing, cardioversion and defibrillation; and is delivered at a third energy level greater than said second energy level. The second energy level is maintained for a predetermined period of time and then returned to the normal bradycardia pacing energy.
Pacemaker therapy is most commonly initiated because of symptomatic bradycardia, usually resulting from sinus node disease. Randomized multicenter trials assessing the relative benefits of different pacing modes have made possible an evidence-based approach to the treatment of bradyarrhythmias. During the past several decades, major advances In technology and in our understanding of cardiac pathophysiology have led to the development of new pacing techniques for the treatment of heart failure in the absence of bradycardia. Left ventricular or biventricular pacing may improve symptoms of heart failure and objective measurements of left ventricular systolic dysfunction by resynchronizing cardiac contraction. However, emerging clinical data suggest that long-term right ventricular apical pacing may have harmful effects. As the complexity of cardiac pacing devices continues to grow, physicians need to have a basic understanding of device indications, device function, and common problems encountered ...

Premature ventricular contractions is one of the most common symptomatic arrhythmia. Antiarrhythmia drugs for premature ventricular contractions, such as beta-blockers and sodium channel blockers, can cause bradycardia. For sinus bradycardia patients complicated with premature ventricular contractions, its hard for doctors to make decision. The purpose of the study is to assess the effects of Chinese medicine Shansong Yangxin capsule for sinus bradycardia complicated with ventricular premature beats, which based on the numbers of premature ventricular contractions and average hear rate in 24-hour ambulatory electrocardiogram (ECG) after 8 weeks treatment as the primary endpoint of the study. Secondary endpoints are evaluation of the Shensong Yangxin capsule on quality of life. This study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, multi-center trial. Sinus bradycardia patients(average heart rate 45-59 beat per minute) associated with premature ventricular contractions (PVC number ,10000 ...
Sick sinus syndrome comprises a variety of conditions involving sinus node dysfunction and commonly affects elderly persons. While the syndrome can have many causes, it usually is idiopathic. Patients may experience syncope, pre-syncope, palpitations, or dizziness; however, they often are asymptomatic or have subtle or nonspecific symptoms. Sick sinus syndrome has multiple manifestations on electrocardiogram, including sinus bradycardia, sinus arrest, sinoatrial block, and alternating patterns of bradycardia and tachycardia (bradycardia-tachycardia syndrome). Diagnosis of sick sinus syndrome can be difficult because of its nonspecific symptoms and elusive findings on electrocardiogram or Holter monitor. The mainstay of treatment is atrial or dual-chamber pacemaker placement, which generally provides effective relief of symptoms and lowers the incidence of atrial fibrillation, thromboembolic events, heart failure, and mortality, compared with ventricular pacemakers.
A four-week-old Charolais heifer was referred for surgical treatment of an infected umbilicus. The heifer was sedated with intravenous xylazine, and an indwelling intravenous jugular cannula was placed. General anaesthesia was induced with intravenous ketamine and maintained with isoflurane in 100 per cent oxygen. Surgical exploration of the abdomen revealed an infected urachus originating from the apex of the bladder and bilaterally infected umbilical arteries. Anaesthesia was stable for 35 minutes until surgical traction of the urachus and umbilical arteries resulted in bradycardia and hypoventilation/apnoea, which resolved when the traction was released, but recurred as and when traction was reinitiated. Collaboration between the anaesthetist and the surgeon was necessary to progress the procedure while minimising perturbations in physiology. Towards the end of the procedure, during peritoneal lavage with sterile saline, severe bradycardia developed (heart rate ,20 bpm) and was successfully ...
The frequency, clinical course, and prognosis of sinus node dysfunction in 431 patients with acute myocardial infarction admitted to the coronary care unit were studied. Sinus node dysfunction occurred in 20 patients. In 13, the principal manifestation consisted of severe sinus bradycardia. In the remaining 7, periods of bradycardia alternating with episodes of supraventricular tachycardia were noted. Though several of the patients with sinus bradycardia required intravenous atropine or temporary pacing, normal sinus rhythm returned in virtually all during follow-up. The clinical course of patients with both bradycardia and tachycardia was less benign, during the acute phase and during follow-up; 5 of the 6 survivors required continued antiarrhythmic therapy or permanent pacing. The differences in the clinical course between these two groups of patients may reflect distinct underlying pathological changes. The findings in this study suggest that in contrast to sinus bradycardia, the occurrence ...

The main conclusion of this prospective study is that in patients with adenosine-sensitive syncope, the mechanism of syncope is heterogeneous, although bradycardia is the most frequent finding. The causal relationship between ATP-induced AV block and syncope due to paroxysmal AV block is weak. Atrioventricular block induced by ATP predicts AV block as the mechanism of spontaneous syncope in only a few tilt-negative cases.. At the time of ILR-documented syncope, about half of the patients showed long pauses, and two-thirds had severe bradycardia. Sinus arrest or bradycardia was more frequent in patients who had an associated positive response during tilt testing. This finding is consistent with that observed in a previous study in patients with tilt-positive syncope (8). The finding of progressive sinus bradycardia frequently followed by sinus arrest has been regarded as highly suggestive of a neurally mediated mechanism. The association between AV block and sinus arrest, as in Patient no. 4, ...
Profound bradycardia caused by sugammadex has been reported, although its mechanism is unclear. Herein, we suggest a possible culprit for this phenomenon. A 50-year-old woman without comorbidity except mild obesity underwent a transabdominal hysterectomy and right salpingo-oophorectomy. After surgery, sugammadex 200 mg was intravenously administered. Approximately 4 min later, her heart rate decreased to 36 bpm accompanied by hypotension (41/20 mmHg) and ST depression in limb lead electrocardiogram (ECG). Atropine 0.5 mg was injected intravenously without improving the hemodynamics. Intravenous adrenaline 0.5 mg was added despite the lack of signs suggesting allergic reactions. Her heart rate and blood pressure quickly recovered and remained stable thereafter, although 12-lead ECG taken 1 h later still showed ST depression. In this case, the significant bradycardia appeared attributable to coronary vasospasm (Kounis syndrome) induced by sugammadex, considering the ECG findings and high incidence of
Definition. Abnormality of cardiac rhythm is cardiac arrhythmia. 1-bradycardia means heart rate less than 60 beats per minute. 2- Tachycardia means heart rate more than 100 beats per minute.. Bradycardia. It may be sinus bradycardia or pathological bradycardia. Sinus bradycardia. Heart rate is 60 beats per minute and is usually asymptomatic .it causes include hypothermia, hypothyroidism, B-Blockers and digitalis, increased intracranial pressure, degeneration and fibrosis of atrium and sinus node.. Pathological bradycardia. It may be due to sinus node disease and atrioventricular block or atrioventricular conduction disturbance. Treatment. No treatment in asymptomatic cases. In sinus bradycardia atropine or beta one agonist is indicated.. Tachycardia. It may be sinus tachycardia or pathological tachycardia.. Sinus tachycardia. Heart rate is more than 100 beats per minute is sinus rhythm can be caused by fever, exercise, emotions, pregnancy, anemia, thyrotoxicosis, and increased ...
INTRODUCTION. Sinus tachycardia is widely recognized as one of the classic features of active rheumatic fever, but the fact that an abnormally slow heart rate is often present during the acute phase of this disease has received little emphasis.. Apparently the first report discussing the occurrence of sinus bradycardia in acute rheumatism was that of Andrieu and Aujalen1 in 1936. Later, Keith2 commented on the pulse rates observed in a large series of rheumatic children. He found that many cases developed a heart rate slower than normal as the acute phase of the illness subsided. Bradycardia was noted to occur ...

N2 - Background-We hypothesized that unresponsiveness of superior sinoatrial node (SAN) to sympathetic stimulation is strongly associated with the development of symptomatic bradycardia in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Methods and Results-We performed 3D endocardial mapping in healthy controls (group 1, n=10) and patients with AF without (group 2, n=57) or with (group 3, n=15) symptomatic bradycardia at baseline and during isoproterenol infusion. Corrected SAN recovery time was abnormal in 0%, 11%, and 36% of groups 1, 2, and 3, respectively (P=0.02). At baseline, 90%, 26%, and 7% (P,0.001) of the patients had multicentric SAN ...
5.5 are indications for anti-digoxin Fab, if available. The best regimen is currently unclear. Consider giving 400 mg over 20 minutes followed by 400-800 mg over 4-8 hours by infusion. In the absence of anti-digoxin Fab: Give insulin/dextrose for potassium >5,5. Do not give calcium. Consider treating severe bradycardia due to AV block with temporary pacing Treat ventricular fibrillation with low-energy direct current cardioversion. Previously forced vomiting or performing gastric lavage was part of the treatment of poisoning, but is no longer recommended. There is a lack of evidence that weighs efficacy versus harm. Activated charcoal is still used, since it binds toxins in the gastrointestinal tract to reduce absorption. It is uncertain whether repeated administration of activated charcoal is effective, in theory interrupting enterohepatic cycling. This treatment is used for digoxin poisoning, another cardiac glycoside. Supportive care like monitoring vitals and electrolyte and fluid balance is ...
Out of the 15 patients, 5 patients expired and 3 patients rhythm had self-reverted. A permanent pacemaker was inserted in the remaining 7 patients. Permanent pacemaker implantation was done after clinical recovery of the patient or after 14 days of COVID-19 infection; whichever is maximum. 2 patients had a dual chamber pacemaker implanted and in the remaining five, a single chamber pacemaker was implanted.. Discussion. COVID-19 has been associated with the development of cardiac dysfunction in patients with or without underlying cardiac condition. The exact mechanism of cardiac involvement during COVID-19 remains unknown and is open to debate. Acute bradycardia in a COVID-19 patient may be either due to direct SARS-CoV-2 infiltration of myocardial cells and the dedicated conduction system, aggravation of preexisting conduction disease during acute illness, or maybe as a result of collateral damage from systemic inflammatory reaction and cytokine storm.2 Also, as myocarditis has been extensively ...
Infusion reactions are expected to occur and include nausea, vomiting, fever, rigors or chills, flushing, dyspnea, hypoxemia, chest tightness, hypertension, tachycardia, bradycardia, dysgeusia, hematuria, and mild headache. Premedication with antipyretics, histamine antagonists, and corticosteroids may reduce the incidence and intensity of infusion reactions. Severe reactions, including respiratory distress, severe bronchospasm, severe bradycardia with heart block or other arrhythmias, cardiac arrest, hypotension, hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, renal compromise, encephalopathy, loss of consciousness, and seizure also may occur. Many of these reactions are related to the amount of DMSO administered. Minimizing the amount of DMSO administered may reduce the risk of such reactions, although idiosyncratic responses may occur even at DMSO doses thought to be tolerated. The actual amount of DMSO depends on the method of preparation of the product for infusion. Limiting the amount of DMSO infused ...

Extensive research has been conducted on the genetic regulation of SAN development as a whole unit. However, the existence of genetically distinguishable domains, i.e. the Nkx2-5+ SA junction and Nkx2-5− SAN head, within the developing SAN indicates the involvement of different regulatory mechanisms for these two domains. Shox2 was originally thought to regulate SAN development by preventing ectopic Nkx2-5 activation in the SAN (Blaschke et al., 2007; Espinoza-Lewis et al., 2009). However, as shown in the present study, the situation is more complicated. We provide unambiguous evidence that Shox2 is co-expressed with Nkx2-5 in the SA junction during SAN development, and loss of Shox2 in the Nkx2-5+ domain leads to severely hypoplastic and eventually unidentifiable SA junction structures. The compromised SAN function in the mutant mice, which is manifested as severe bradycardia, irregular R-R intervals and variable P-R intervals, demonstrates for the first time the requirement for Shox2 in the ...

Abstract: Facial paralysis is the most frequent unilateral cranial nerve pathology affecting pregnant population 2 to 4 times more often than the nonpregnant population. There exists an association with preeclampsia but this has largely been overlooked. Clinicians often dismiss it for idiopathic palsy as seen in the present case. A 30-year-old woman, Gravida 4, Para 3, presented at 26 weeks pregnancy with complaints of facial weakness, blurring of vision, altered taste sensation, increased noise sensitivity for 1 month, headache since 18 days, and vomiting since 2-3 days. Her pulse was 90/min, BP was 170/120, and RR was 18/min. Uterus was 18 weeks size and proteinuria++ was present. Ultrasonography revealed a 26 weeks fetus, severe bradycardia, and absent liquor. HELLP syndrome was diagnosed after investigations. Six units of fresh frozen plasma were transfused. An informed decision for termination of pregnancy was made. She delivered a 450?gram stillborn. The third stage was complicated with ...

Hi bunee, Welcome to the heart forum. It looks like aldo has given some excellent advice. I personally have Sick Sinus Syndrome and Bradycardia which I have had to have a pacemaker implanted to keep my heart rate up. It was beating in the 20-30 beats per minute range before pacer. I have never been on a beta blocker though and dont have any experience with this. Since your having dizziness and chest tightness it would be a good idea to pursue having it looked into further. Low heart rate can cause dizziness and passing out if it becomes low enough. Please let us know how your doing ...

Dravet syndrome (DS) is a severe childhood-onset epilepsy commonly due to mutations of the sodium channel gene SCN1A. DS patients have a high risk of sudden unexplained death in epilepsy (SUDEP), believed to be due to cardiac mechanisms. Here we show that DS patients have peri-ictal respiratory dysfunction. One patient who had severe and prolonged postictal hypoventilation later died of SUDEP. Mice with an Scn1aR1407X/+ loss of function mutation died after spontaneous and heat-induced seizures due to central apnea followed by progressive bradycardia. Death could be prevented with mechanical ventilation after seizures induced by hyperthermia or maximal electroshock. Muscarinic receptor antagonists did not prevent bradycardia or death when given at doses selective for peripheral parasympathetic blockade, whereas apnea was prevented at doses known to be high enough to cross the blood brain barrier. Anoxia causes bradycardia due to a direct effect on the heart. We conclude that SUDEP in DS may ...

Mice with an Scn1aR1407X/+ loss of function mutation died after spontaneous and heat-induced seizures due to central apnea followed by progressive bradycardia. Death could be prevented with mechanical ventilation after seizures induced by hyperthermia or maximal electroshock. Muscarinic receptor antagonists did not prevent bradycardia or death when given at doses selective for peripheral parasympathetic blockade, whereas apnea was prevented at doses known to be high enough to cross the blood brain barrier. Anoxia causes bradycardia due to a direct effect on the heart. We conclude that SUDEP in DS may ...

Pharmacological therapy has long been the primary technique for controlling ventricular rates in patients with atrial fibrillation. Cardiac glycosides, β-adrenergic blockers, or calcium channels blockers are used, alone or frequently in combination, to prolong atrioventricular (AV) nodal refractoriness. Increased concealed conduction in the AV node results in moderation of the ventricular rate with conduction now occurring in an irregularly, irregular pattern. Although AV nodal blocking agents are usually considered to be safer and better tolerated than most membrane-active antiarrhythmic drugs, they do have some potential disadvantages. Many patients will require more than one agent. In patients with intermittent atrial fibrillation, excess bradycardia due to intrinsic or drug-induced sinus node dysfunction may be seen. Nocturnal bradycardia is common even if daytime or exercise rates are poorly controlled. Stress from an acute severe illness may make heart rate control difficult even in ...

Aim: To evaluate the safety of pacemaker implantation in patients with Alzheimers disease (AD).; Methods: We reviewed all cases admitted to our institution between January 2008 and June 2009, with symptomatic bradyarrhythmia for whom a permanent pacemaker was implanted. Beginning in June 2009, we prospectively collected data from all patients with the same diagnosis and procedure. Patients with a diagnosis of AD were included in the study. The risks and frequency of complications due to the pacemaker implantation were evaluated. Because of the older age of patients, they were divided into 2 groups to define the effect of age on complication rate. Group 1 consisted of patients aged ...
The rate at which the heart beats is measured in beats per minute (or bpm) and is generally calculated over several RR intervals. The normal rate in an adult is between 50 and 120 bpm. However, it is natural for a healthy heart to beat at rates outside of this range when resting, exercising, or in response to other external factors and emotions.. Alterations in heart rhythm, arrhythmias, are heartbeats that are irregular, too fast, too slow, or conducted via an abnormal electrical pathway through the heart.. In common usage, the term dysrhythmia is synonymous with arrhythmia, although in the strictest sense, arrhythmia is the absence of cardiac rhythm and dysrhythmia is an abnormal cardiac rhythm.. The term bradyarrhythmia is used to define abnormally slow rhythms, either regular or irregular, or a slow ventricular response due to heart block.. Tachyarrhythmia describes arrhythmia characterised by a rapid irregular heartbeat.. Rhythms and arrhythmia are further classified by the site of the ...
HEMANGEOLTM prevents the response of endogenous catecholamines to correct hypoglycemia and masks the adrenergic warning signs of hypoglycemia, particularly tachycardia, palpitations and sweating. HEMANGEOLTM can cause hypoglycemia in children, especially when they are not feeding regularly or are vomiting; withhold the dose under these conditions. Hypoglycemia may present in the form of seizures, lethargy, or coma. If a child has clinical signs of hypoglycemia, parents should discontinue HEMANGEOLTM and call their health care provider immediately or take the child to the emergency room. Concomitant treatment with corticosteroids may increase the risks of hypoglycemia. HEMANGEOLTM may cause or worsen bradycardia or hypotension. Monitor heart rate and blood pressure after treatment initiation or increase in dose. Discontinue treatment if severe (,80 beats per minute) or symptomatic bradycardia or hypotension (systolic blood pressure ,50 mmHg) occurs. HEMANGEOLTM can cause bronchospasm; do not use ...

Diabetic men and women are 2.4 and 5.1 times more likely to develop cardiac heart failure than their nondiabetic counterparts (Framingham study). As well as predisposing to noncardiac causes of heart failure, such as hypertension and ischemic cardiomyopathy, diabetes is associated with a form of cardiomyopathy in which the coronary arteries are normal and small-vessel disease is absent (no basal lamina abnormalities in the myocardial capillaries, no lactic acid production during atrial pacing, etc). Diabetic cardiomyopathy is typically of the mildly dilated variety, with diastolic preceding systolic dysfunction. It is also more often associated than other forms of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) with bradyarrhythmia (presumably due to conduction neuropathy).. The morphology of diabetic DCM is nonspecific. Its pathophysiology remains incompletely elucidated, but is undoubtedly myriad, comprising vascular and metabolic lesions of the coronary microcirculation, endothelium, and autonomic nervous ...

ISSN 0102-7638. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-76382005000400007.. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the long-term outcomes of children submitted to permanent cardiac pacing due to postoperative bradycardia and to identify risk factors for mortality. METHODS: From 1980 to 2004, 120 children were submitted to permanent pacemaker (PM) implantation. Interval between the defect correction and PM implantation was 1.2 ± 2.8 years, on average (median = 21 days). Atrioventricular blocks were present in 94.2% of patients. Transvenous leads (78.3%) and ventricular pacemaker systems (79.2%) were used in most of the cases. Risk factors were studied using the Cox proportional model. The Kaplan-Meier method and the Log-Rank test were used to analyze survival. RESULTS: After a mean of 5.7 ± 5.9 years (maximum = 22.5 years) of follow-up, 97 ...

... is a benzamide,[12] derivative of morpholine,[103] which acts pharmacologically as a selective, reversible inhibitor of monoamine oxidase A (RIMA),[9] a type of monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI), and increases levels of norepinephrine (noradrenaline), dopamine, and especially serotonin.[104][105] in neuronal cells as well as in synaptic vesicles; extracellular levels also increase which results in increased monoamine receptor stimulation and suppression of REM sleep, down regulation of 3-adrenoceptors. A single 300 mg dose of moclobemide inhibits 80% of monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A) and 30% of monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B), blocking the decomposition of norepinephrine, serotonin and, to a lesser extent, dopamine. There is also some evidence pointing towards moclobemide possessing neuroprotective properties.[8] There is no cumulative effect of moclobemide centrally when taken long-term.[8] With long-term use of moclobemide, there is a significant down-regulation of B-adrenoceptors.[8] ...
