OrlovMV et al proved that the frequency of AHRE was 89% in patients with previous atrial tachyarrhythmias
and 49% in patients with no history of atrial tachyarrhythmias10.
, if persistent, can progress to cardiomyopathy or myocardial dysfunction.
During a follow-up of 32 [+ or -] 20 months, 162 (82%) of the 198 patients were free of sustained atrial tachyarrhythmia
lasting more than 30s.
(19) suggest that short-lasting tachyarrhythmia
might be a precursor of permanent AF and that anticoagulation treatment should be considered as prophylaxis for stroke.
Cardiovascular system (CVS) findings may occur simultaneously with CNS signs or appear later, and can include hyperdynamic findings such as hypertension and tachyarrhythmia
as well as signs of cardiac depression such as hypotension, bradyarrhythmia, conduction block, and asystole.
When electrical signals in the lower chamber of the heart fire erratically, the heart can beat abnormally fast - a condition known as ventricular tachycardia or tachyarrhythmia
- which in turn leaves the heart unable to pump blood effectively.
Implantable devices are implantable loop recorders (ILRs) or permanent/temporary pacemakers/ implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) equipped with diagnostic features.5 Each device presents with its own unique advantages and disadvantages.6 If all non-invasive studies remain negative despite significant and intolerable symptoms, advanced invasive diagnostic methods like electrophysiological study for the induction of tachyarrhythmia
may be considered.2,4,5
We can assume that the antiarrhythmic treatment prevented the occurrence of tachyarrhythmia
Immediate arterial perfusion was noted with a corresponding blood pressure drop, end tidal carbon dioxide rise, and short run of tachyarrhythmia
compared these two methods in 30 consecutive patients for 12 months and reported freedom from atrial tachyarrhythmia
of 69.0% in magnetic and 61.8% in manual group (p = 0.961) .
The authors described the results as an 'acute cardiac rhythm and/or conduction disturbance (irregular heartbeat), most commonly supraventricular tachyarrhythmia
(fast heartbeat), associated with heavy ethanol (alcohol) consumption in a person without other clinical evidence of heart disease.'
In conclusion, I do believe that studies investigating anesthesia drugs for electrical cardioversion must present the diagnosis of the tachyarrhythmia
treated, the underlying structural heart disease of the patients, and the success rates of the procedure.

Unfortunately, modern-day lifestyle trends in the region are putting people at greater risk of cardiovascular diseases such as coronary artery disease, stroke, hypertension, heart failure, cardiomyopathy and cardiac tachyarrhythmia
Angiographic evidence of myocardial squeezing accompanying tachyarrhythmia
as a possible cause of myocardialinfarction.Chest.1978; 73: 431-433.
