Acta Cardiol Sin 2020 May;36(3):251-259

School of Medicine, Fu Jen Catholic University, New Taipei City.

Background: Although 24-hour Holter monitoring is routinely used for patients with suspected paroxysmal arrhythmia, its sensitivity in detecting such arrhythmias is insufficient.

Methods: We compared a 14-day electrocardiography (ECG) monitor patch - a single-use, noninvasive, waterproof, continuous monitoring patch - with a 24-hour Holter monitor in 32 consecutive patients with suspected arrhythmia.

Results: The 14-day ECG patch was well tolerated, and its rates of detection of relevant arrhythmias on days 1, 3, 7, and 14 were 13%, 28%, 47%, and 66%, respectively. Read More

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation is feasible in patients with acute heart failure.

ESC Heart Fail 2019 10 28;6(5):975-982. Epub 2019 Aug 28.

Department of Cardiology, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya, Japan.

Aims: In acute heart failure (AHF), immobilization is caused because of unstable haemodynamics and dyspnoea, leading to protein wasting. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) has been reported to preserve muscle mass and improve functional outcomes in chronic disease. NMES may be effective against protein wasting frequently manifested in patients with AHF; however, whether NMES can be implemented safely without any adverse effect on haemodynamics has remained unknown.

Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia.

Cureus 2019 Jun 11;11(6):e4883. Epub 2019 Jun 11.

Emergency Medicine, Advent Health Florida Hospital, Orlando, USA.

Supraventricular tachycardia is a common emergency department (ED) pathology that frequently leads to hospital admission, but this may not be necessary in all cases. Here, we present a supraventricular tachycardia patient who was discharged from the ED after vagal maneuvers. This case demonstrates evidence that judicious emergency physicians can discharge supraventricular tachycardia patients home safely and gives impetus for a data-driven protocol for discharging these patients.

Improvement in ventricular function with rhythm control of atrial arrhythmias may delay the need for atrioventricular valve surgery in adults with congenital heart disease.

Congenit Heart Dis 2019 Nov 5;14(6):931-938. Epub 2019 Aug 5.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Objective: Atrial arrhythmias and atrioventricular valve regurgitation (AVVR) are common causes of morbidity among adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD). The impact of rhythm control on AVVR in this population is unknown. We sought to determine whether a rhythm control strategy is associated with greater freedom from AV valve surgery than a rate control strategy. Read More

Supraventricular Tachycardia.

Med Clin North Am 2019 Sep;103(5):863-879

Department of Cardiac Electrophysiology, St. Bernard's Heart and Vascular Center, Jonesboro, AR, USA. Electronic address:

The term paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia encompasses a heterogeneous group of arrhythmias with different electrophysiologic characteristics. Knowledge of the mechanism of each supraventricular tachycardia is important in determining management in the office, at the bedside, and in the electrophysiology laboratory. Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardias have an abrupt onset and offset, typically initiating and terminating with premature atrial ectopic beats. Read More

Supraventricular tachyarrhythmias that responded dramatically to bisoprolol transdermal patches in two patients undergoing hemodialysis.

Ann Noninvasive Electrocardiol 2019 11 13;24(6):e12660. Epub 2019 Jun 13.

Department of Cardiology, Juntendo University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

We here report two patients with atrial flutter (AFL) and paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) who were undergoing hemodialysis and returned quickly to normal sinus rhythm without hypotension when treated with bisoprolol transdermal patches (Bisono Tape) (TOA EIYO, Tokyo, Japan). Spontaneous rhythm reversion had not occurred prior to these events in either patient. Our findings indicate that Bisono Tape may be a new and more effective treatment for AFL and PSVT in patients undergoing hemodialysis. Read More

Clinical characteristics of cardiac arrhythmias in pregnant women.

Wiad Lek 2019 ;72(3):381-383

Department of Internal Medicine №3, National Pirogov Memorial Medical University, Vinnytsya, Ukraine.

Objective: Introduction: Cardiac arrhythmia often occurs in the gestational period of pregnant women, contributing to the development of complications of pregnancy, childbirth and perinatal pathology, which requires a more thorough examination of pregnant women and antiarrhythmic treatment, which in turn increases the risk of complications pregnancy and childbirth. Many types of arrhythmias occur in women without structural damage to the cardiovascular system. The aim is to study the occurrence of cardiac rhythm disturbances in healthy pregnant women, depending on the gestational age, the number of previous pregnancies, infectious diseases during pregnancy, and arrhythmia analysis, which required antiarrhythmic treatment.
