The year 1988 marked the beginning of the International Workshop on
Cardiac Arrhythmias. This biannual series of meetings was initiated with the
following goals: (1) to present technological advances in the field of cardiac
arrhythmias, (2) to publicise the results of current research, and (3) to assess
the impact of new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
(BQ) Part 1 book "Understanding intracardiac EGMs and ECGs" presents the following contents: Electrophysiology concepts (Fluoroscopic anatomy and electrophysiologic recording in the heart, programmed stimulation, bradycardia, supraventricular tachycardia, wide complex tachycardia, new technology, power sources for ablation).
Supraventricular tachycardia may be caused by abnormal conduction pathways
such as the Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, characterised on the ECG by a short P-
R interval and an abnormal delta wave on the upstroke of the QRS complex. The child
may develop sudden episodes of tachycardia associated with heart rates of
240beats/min, up to 300beats/min. These appear on ECG as narrow complex
rhythms. The child may feel faint and uncomfortable during an arrhythmia.
