Some articles on atrial:

Michel Haïssaguerre - Areas of Research
... work focuses on cardiovascular electrophysiology, particularly on atrial fibrillation ... He is best known for his remarkable contributions in the area of atrial fibrillation ablation ... first to detect the importance of pulmonary vein triggers and drivers in the genesis of atrial fibrillation ...
Lewis Lead
... A Lewis Lead (also called the S5 lead) is a modified EKG lead used to detect atrial flutter waves when atrial flutter is suspected clinically but not definitely demonstrated on the standard 12 lead EKG ... since in most patients it will be roughly perpendicular to the wave of atrial depolarization, flutter waves may be more apparent ...
Tedisamil
... agent currently being investigated for the treatment of atrial fibrillation ... While the effects of tedisamil have been demonstrated in both atrial and ventricular muscle, repolarization is prolonged more efficiently in the atria ... in phase III of clinical testing for atrial fibrillation ...
Atrial Tachycardia
... Atrial tachycardia is a type of atrial arrhythmia in which the heart's electrical impulse comes from an ectopic atrial pacemaker rather than from the SA node ... Atrial tachycardias are characterized by very regular rates ranging from 140–220 bpm ... One form is multifocal atrial tachycardia ...
Tedisamil - Molecular Problem
... Atrial arrhythmias are the most common type of arrhythmia with several subtypes currently described, including atrial fibrillation ... In atrial fibrillation, there is continual quivering of the atria as contraction of the muscle is uncoordinated ... throughout the atria causing coordinated excitement and inactivation of atrial muscle cell ion channels resulting in uniform contraction and relaxation of the muscle fibres ...
