  1. 1. Cellular electrophysiological modulation in chronic atrial fibrillation - Studies with magnesium and GIK solution

    Författare :Max Ingemansson; Lunds universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Action potential duration; Atrial cycle length; Atrial remodelling; Autonomic nervous system; AV-nodal; Conduction velocity; GIK; Magnesium; Resting membrane potential.; Refractoriness; Atrial fibrillation; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Sammanfattning : Although chronic atrial fibrillation (CAF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia in man, the mechanisms involved in its progressive course are still not fully understood. Recent studies have verified an electrical remodelling of the atrial myocardium that may be responsible for the electrophysiological disturbances known to exist in the fibrillating atria. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Atrial Fibrillation. Modulation of the atrial fibrillatory frequency. A non-invasive approach

    Författare :Carl Meurling; Kardiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; elektrofysiologi; Förmaksflimmer; arytmi; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet; non-invasiv;

    Sammanfattning : Aim: To non-invasively detect and explore the changes in atrial fibrillatory cycle length (i.e. changes in the atrial refractory period) in humans with chronic atrial fibrillation (CAF) following autonomic modulation and pharmacological intervention. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Chronic atrial fibrillation in man. Activation, organisation and characterisation

    Författare :Magnus Holm; Kardiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ECG spectral analysis; Preferential conduction; Organisation; Conduction velocity; Refractoriness; Mechanisms; Activation pattern; Chronic; Fibrillation; Human; Atrium; Open-heart surgery; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Sammanfattning : Chronic atrial fibrillation (CAF), with a prevalence progressively increasing with age, is one of the most common cardiac arrhythmias in man and associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Previous studies have shown that, in animals as well as in man, experimental atrial fibrillation is based on different types and dimensions of intra-atrial electrical re-entry. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The oesophageal route in clinical electrocardiology

    Författare :Steen Pehrson; Kardiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular system; oesophageal electrocardiogram; cardiac pacing; Transoesophageal stimulation; arrhythmias; non-invasive electrophysiology; atrial fibrillation; supraventricular tachycardia; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Sammanfattning : The subject of this thesis is the clinical use of the oesophageal electrode in electrocardiology. The three areas covered are oesophageal electro- cardiography, the biophysics of transoesophageal atrial stimulation (TAS) and the clinical utility of TAS. The literature is reviewed with respect to these areas. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Cardiac electrophysiologic effects of mental stress

    Författare :Per Insulander; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Mental stress may trigger serious arrhythmias. Mental stress tests cause significant increases in heart rate, blood pressure and cardiac output. When beta-adrenergic inhibition is considered for secondary antiarrhythmic prophylaxis beta1 selective agents are often preferred because of less adverse reactions. LÄS MER
