What is Tachy-Brady syndrome?

What is Tachy-Brady syndrome?

In tachy-brady syndrome, also called tachycardia-bradycardia syndrome, the heart sometimes beats too quickly (tachy) and sometimes beats too slowly (brady). This abnormal heart rhythm problem is often seen in people who have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation.

What is the first indication of a malfunctioning SA node?

The symptoms of sinus node dysfunction are non-specific and include lightheadedness, fatigue, presyncope, and syncope. For patients who have tachy-brady syndrome, they can present with palpitations.

What is cardiac arrhythmia?

Heart rhythm problems (heart arrhythmias) occur when the electrical impulses that coordinate your heartbeats don’t work properly, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly. Heart arrhythmias (uh-RITH-me-uhs) may feel like a fluttering or racing heart and may be harmless.

What is the difference between sinus rhythm and arrhythmia?

Normal sinus rhythm is a regular rhythm found in healthy people. Sinus arrhythmia means there is an irregularity in the heart rhythm, originating at the sinus node.

When is the ECG when the patient has a bradycardia?

A slow heart rate can also be a major contributor to angina. An ECG is therefore an essential part of the investigation of any patient with a slow pulse rate, and indeed of any patient with dizziness, syncope or breathlessness. The causes of sinus bradycardia have been discussed in Chapter 1 (see Box 1.2, p. 5).

What are the symptoms of tachycardia bradycardia syndrome?

Tachy-brady syndrome symptoms may include: 1 Fainting or passing out 2 Heart palpitations, or the sensation that the heart rate is skipping, slowing down or racing 3 Lightheadedness

What is the heart rate of sinus bradycardia?

Definition of sinus bradycardia Sinus bradycardia fulfills the criteria for sinus rhythm but the heart rate is slower than 50 beats per minute.

What are the different types of tachycardia ECG?

Junctional Tachycardia ECG Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia (MAT) ECG Non-conducted or Blocked Premature Atrial Contractions (PACs) ECG Premature Atrial Contractions (PACs) ECG Supraventricular Tachycardia with Aberrancy ECG
