ARRHYTHMIA - DESCRIPTION


Irregularities in the rhythm or number of heartbeats are called arrhythmias. The heartbeat causes the heart muscle to contract, which normally ranges from 70 to 75 beats per minute. When the heart rate is higher than normal, this arrhythmia is called tachycardia, and when the heart rate is lower, it is called bradycardia.

Irregular heartbeat rhythm is caused by a disturbance or interruption of rhythm in electrical impulses in the heart muscle. Irregular typing is often the result of heart disease, and can also occur due to heart valve disease and as a result of hormonal disorders (increased thyroid secretion).
Symptoms of an arrhythmia include difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, blue lips and limbs, rapid fatigue, a feeling of trembling under the sternum, a feeling that the heart is beating too hard, fluid retention in the body and sometimes a cough.

Atrial fibrillation means irregular chaotic propagation of an electrical impulse in the atrium resulting in a reduction in its contraction. In most patients, it is a consequence of some structural heart disease, but it also often occurs in healthy young people. Because the electrical impulse is incorrectly transmitted through the AV node into the ventricle, the heart rate is irregular and can be too fast or too slow. This results in an uncomfortable feeling of heart palpitations and can lead to disturbances of consciousness, ie heart failure. If it lasts longer, a clot can form and then there is a risk of stroke.
Atrial undulation is an arrhythmia that occurs in a healthy or structurally altered heart and is caused by the circulation of an electrical impulse in the right atrium.
Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia is a circular arrhythmia in which there is a bundle inside the heart that conducts an electrical impulse in the wrong direction. In certain situations, an electrical impulse circulates through the normal system and through the beam, which results in tachycardia, ie an accelerated heart rate (often over 200 / min). This arrhythmia, except in rare cases, is not dangerous, but is extremely uncomfortable and requires treatment in the emergency department.
Extrasystoles are additional heartbeats that occur due to the appearance of a heart pulse outside the normal sinus node. If they occur in the atrium, they are called supraventricular, and those that occur in the ventricle are called ventricular extrasystoles. They are a common and normal finding in most healthy people. If they are frequent, from multiple foci, or are complex (in pairs, every second or third heart pulse) may indicate heart disease. In patients who do not have heart disease, they usually do not require treatment. In the case of heart disease, the underlying disease needs to be treated.
Ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation are rare life-threatening arrhythmias because they lead to inadequate contractions (compression) of the ventricle and a marked drop in pressure, and if they last longer to death. Patients who are at increased risk of these arrhythmias require treatment with special antiarrhythmics, and a cardioverter defibrillator may be installed.


SELF-HELP MEASURES FOR SUPPORTING THERAPY

- Eat only basic foods with as many fresh fruits and vegetables as possible
- Try to avoid salt
- Avoid nicotine, coffee and alcohol; of alcohol only red wine can be drunk in smaller quantities since it contains tannin
- Eat garlic because it contains acylin, which normalizes blood pressure and blood flow in the heart, and also regulates cholesterol
- Strive to achieve your normal body weight
- Try to lower blood pressure and high cholesterol with foods rich in lecithin, vitamin C and raw carrots
- Avoid stressful situations and apply relaxation techniques
- Avoid unnecessary fatigue and take time to rest more often
- Apply measures that stabilize blood circulation: dry rubbing with a towel, washing and showering, cold compresses on the chest
- Practice the full breathing technique regularly
- Massage your chest with white hawthorn fat
- Use preparations of lemon balm, valerian, St. John's wort, nettle and hawthorn
- Drink teas that strengthen heart tissue, calm the heart and lower blood pressure: camphor, white hawthorn and mistletoe
- Move as much as possible in the fresh air
