An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat.
Arrythmias occur when the electrical impulses to the heart that coordinate heartbeats do not work properly, resulting in heartbeats being too fast, too slow or with an irregular rhythm. Arrhythmias 101 is an introductory guide to heart rhythm disturbances, helping trainees understand, recognise, diagnose and manage arrhythmias. Beginning with an introduction to normal and abnormal heartbeats, the following chapters examine different types of arrhythmia, the causes of fast and slow heartbeats, their diagnosis and management. `Clinical pearls' are included throughout the book. Authored by Houston-based Professor Glenn Levine, this highly useful, easy to read text includes numerous full colour images and illustrations to enhance learning and understanding.
