Continuous arrythmia by atrial fibrillation - Definition


Definition


Continuous (or cardiac) arrhythmia by atrial fibrillation is an anomaly in the cardiac rhythm characterized by irregular contractions of the heart's ventricles. The cardiac rhythm is generally situated between 120 and 200 (tachycardia). It can be permanent, but it can also occur as an attack, can be felt by the person through palpitations, and can disappear suddenly. Its identification is made by recording the heart, or by electrocardiogram which is sometimes performed during a 24-hour period: this is the Holter ECG. The goal of the treatment is two-fold: fight against the major complication of the continuous arrhythmia, thin out the blood, and reduce the frequency of the heartbeats with medication or sometimes with electric shock.
