This engaging book covers a multitude of topics related to heart rhythm disorders (HRDs) and uniquely familiarizes readers with the development of treatment modalities over the past several decades, including the evolution of anti-arrhythmic drugs, pacemakers, defibrillators, and catheter ablation. Organized in ten sections, this title serves as both an archival and a contemporary resource for clinicians. The first section describes the discovery of the circulatory system by William Harvey in 1628 and outlines the development and understanding of HRD since the advent of intra-cardiac electrophysiology. Subsequent sections discuss the historical evolution of abnormal heart rhythms, such as supra and ventricular rhythms and sudden cardiac death, their treatment with drugs, surgery, pacemakers, implantable defibrillators and catheter ablation. Section nine offers a fascinating narration of the clinical evolution of overcoming heart attacks and its impact on HRDs. The final section explores potential new frontiers in HRD and the factors that may contribute to the prospective rise of cardiovascular diseases. A ground-breaking and invaluable addition to the clinical literature, Heart Rhythm Disorders: History, Mechanisms and Management Perspectives details the pervasive nature of cardiovascular diseases in human history, their ramifications, and their projected effects on at-risk demographic populations and human health in general.
Molecular Basis, Pharmacological Modulation and Clinical Implications

Pathological heart rhythms are a major health issue. In this book experts from various fields provide an important context for understanding the complicated molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie normal and pathophysiological cardiac rhythms. Individual chapters cover a full range of topics, including the ionic basis of pacemaking, the role of specific channels and transporters in sinoatrial node pacemaking, altered intracellular Ca2+ handling in response to disease, computer modeling of the action potentials of pacemaker and working cardiomyocytes, genetic and molecular basis of inherited arrhythmias and a review of established and novel antiarrhythmic agents. Due to the key importance of the specialized pacemaker cells and tissue (sinoatrial and atrioventricular nodes) in maintaining heart rate and rhythm, special emphasis is placed on the peculiar electrophysiology of these cells.
These are not mere words, These are feelings, These are emotions, These are confessions, These are nothing but, Rhythms of a heart… These poems invite the readers to sit awhile in fulfilled desire. Something every beautiful heart can relate to. Love Prevails from the womb to tomb. Find love and beauty in everything around. These words rained on me beautifully not once but many times.
A Patient's Guide to Heart Rhythm Problems will help readers understand; how the heart works and what can go wrong; the tests and other diagnostic procedures they may undergo; how their doctor reaches a diagnosis; what their diagnosis means; how their doctor might treat the problem; when medication alone is sufficient treatment; when pacemaker, defibrillator, or biventricular therapy is appropriate; how to get the best possible medical care—in and out of the hospitalEndorsed by the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association, this essential resource features tables highlighting key information, as well as patient narratives that provide personal insight into arrhythmia tests, treatments, and technologies.
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. In this book, the authors put a little light on those matters, which are not well known yet. The authors have exposed some of such cardiac arrhythmias, especially those affecting the atria of the heart (with special emphasis on fibrillation and flutter atria). By means of this book, readers can broaden their knowledge about this specific topic of supraventricular arrhythmias. They can also find a special chapter on Amiodarone as a cardiac antiarrhythmic drug, which is very revealing, even today.
Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
Excerpt from The Heart Rhythms The Object of this book is not to present anything new in regard to the cardiac rhythms, but to separate them from the intricate mass of information concerning instruments, curves, cardiac physiology, etc., in which they are often buried, and to consider the rhythms themselves as a whole, and in relation to each other, but apart from all other func tions of the heart. In doing so they stand out as a very simple and definite mechanism, which when once understood can never be forgotten. The general plan of this book was developed in 1912 after studying in London, was used in the next year in teaching at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, Boston, and Since then in connection with lectures in pharmacology at Johns Hopkins University. On account Of various re quests during the past ten years to publish this plan of the heart rhythms the book has finally been completed.

"The Apollo Theatre in Harlem is synonymous with some of the greatest names in African-American entertainment such James Brown, Redd Foxx, Ray Charles, Billie Holiday, Michael Jackson-and Louis Armstrong. Louis Armstrong? A man seemingly vilified by the black press and who lost his black fan base over the years because of his out-of-date stage persona? A hero at the Apollo? And in the black press? The way Armstrong's story is often told, this might be difficult to fathom but it's all true. Upon his return to the United States in January 1935 after 18 months in Europe, Armstrong's first stop was the brand-new Apollo. Lip troubles prevented him from playing that evening, but his appearance shook up the Theatre, causing management to put up a placard stating: "Coming Shortly-Louis Armstrong." On August 30, 1935, Armstrong finally graced the Apollo stage. There was much apprehension before his appearance. It was his first New York engagement in nearly two years. He hadn't recorded in America since April 1933. He spent much of the first half of 1935 physically unable to play his trumpet. What kind of shape would he be in? Could he still hit his famed high notes? Should he retire? The black press whipped itself into a frenzy in previewing his return to Harlem. Armstrong himself knew this was a defining moment and took a snapshot of the marquee, keeping it for his personal collection"--
