Abstract

Arrhythmias are categorized as due to abnormal impulse formation, abnormal impulse propagation or combined abnormalities of impulse formation and propagation. The primary tools used in the diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmias are the history, physical examination,12-lead electrocardiogram,24-hour continuous electrocardiographic recording, exercise test,intermittent electrocardiographic recording and clinical electrophysiologic study. Optimal management of cardiac arrhythmias requires knowledge of their mechanism,etiology, natural history and effect on the hemodynamic state.And the antiarrhythmic treatment must be monitored closely for its initial and continued effectiveness and for adverse effects.
