Abnormal Heart Rhythms

We know a lot of things about cardiac rhythms and their abnormalities, but there are some things that are still waiting to be discovered and, therefore, require more study.

The authors have exposed some of such cardiac arrhythmias, especially those affecting the atria of the heart. Topics covered includes: Atrial Flutter- Diagnosis, Management and Treatment, Recent Advances in the Noninvasive Study of Atrial Conduction Defects Preceding Atrial Fibrillation, Clinical Significance of Arrhythmogenic Foci in Atrial Fibrillation, Tachycardia-Induced Cardiomyopathy, Review on Amiodarone as an Antiarrhythmic Drug.

Acute Heart Failure

The need for this guideline was identified as the NICE guidelines on chronic heart failure were being updated. We recognized at this time that there were important aspects of the diagnosis and management of acute heart failure that were not being addressed by the chronic heart failure guideline, which focussed on long term management rather than the immediate care of someone who is acutely unwell as a result of heart failure. The aim of this guideline is to provide guidance to the NHS on the diagnosis and management of acute heart failure. Topics covered includes: Diagnosis, assessment and monitoring, Initial pharmacological treatment, Initial non-pharmacological treatment, Treatment after stabilisation, Valvular surgery and percutaneous intervention, Mechanical assist devices.
