We know that every time a heartbeat occurs consistently
reduction of its parts - first the atria and then the ventricles. Only
This alternation provides effective functioning of the heart. When arrhythmias,
which was a beautiful name "atrial" lost one of
cardiac cycle phases, namely - atrial contraction. Their muscle
fibers lose their ability to operate synchronously. As a result of atrial
just randomly twitching - flicker. From this and the ventricles begin
Why there is atrial fibrillation?
are many reasons that can lead to this disease. For example,
various heart diseases: hypertension and some
heart defects, infection of the heart failure and cardiac
failure, coronary heart disease (CHD) and its formidable
complication - myocardial infarction.
In young people, the cause of arrhythmia
often becomes a mitral valve prolapse, that is sagging,
the fragility of one of the flaps the valve between the left atrium and the left
ventricle. This pathology is typically carried hidden and revealed
accidentally. Atrial fibrillation may be the first manifestation of it. But not
Only a diseased heart - reason arrhythmias. A variety of diseases can
give her a head start. And not only the disease.
Very often attack
atrial fibrillation is triggered by eating more than usual,
amounts of alcohol. There is even such a thing - "cardiac arrhythmia

some other hormonal disorders.

stress. Provoke its development are plentiful food, constipation, tight
clothing, insect bites, certain drugs. For example, reception
diuretics to lose weight often leads purpose "of the Statement of the doctor" on
hospital bed. High risk of atrial fibrillation in people
, Especially diabetes mellitus combined with
obesity and high blood pressure. However, not
always doctors can not determine the cause of the arrhythmia.
How do I know

You can set the irregular heart rate. often the disease
It revealed only during outpatient examinations on the ECG. But sometimes
worse, the first manifestations of the disease are complications.
The general is dangerous atrial fibrillation?
it is accompanied by tachycardia, ie, an increase in heart rate
reductions. At the same time in the heart of the colossal burden falls. AT
result may appear chest pain - angina symptoms or
even myocardial infarction. Because arrhythmias can decrease the effectiveness of
of the heart. This will lead to other complications - heart
failure. In this case the person feels suffocation, it seems that it is not
Can arrhythmia pass itself?
Basically, it can. However, if the arrhythmia persists for several hours or
there were complications, you should immediately seek medical
help. However, even if the arrhythmia has disappeared itself, should not be

Sunbecoming a normal rhythm is best carried out in the first day
from the start of the arrhythmia. You can eliminate the arrhythmia and after this period, but
then require additional training. In atrial fibrillation,
when the atria do not contract normally, they slowed down sharply
blood flow, and therefore formed blood clots - clots. it
It occurs on the second day after the onset of arrhythmia. When normal
rhythm is restored and the atria begin to contract, fragments of blood clots
can break off and clog the blood vessels of an organ. Usually
clots "swim" to the brain. This leads to a stroke.
therefore all those who went to a doctor for more than 24-48 hours after
arrhythmia, prescribe medications that slow blood clotting.
Only when the effect is obtained, after approximately 1-2 weeks, perhaps
recovery rate. As a normal heart rhythm is restored?
There are many techniques.
The most effective - rate recovery
using electric discharge. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia,
therefore, it does not cause discomfort. Often, doctors can remove
arrhythmia with medication injections. It is much more difficult to pick up
antiarrhythmic drug for the maintenance of normal heart rhythm. AND
much depends on you: strict adherence to doctor's instructions - already
half the battle, because each new attack of arrhythmia transferred
heavier than the previous.
Can atrial fibrillation persist
for a long time and if it is not dangerous? There are two main forms of arrhythmia:
paroxysmal, which is manifested by individual attacks, and
constant when the atrial fibrillation persists for years or even
decades. Of course, persistent arrhythmia threatens large
complications, especially if accompanied by tachycardia. But here
helps regular medication, slows the heart rate.

It's a shame that even in our enlightened
age, people prefer to be ill, just to "not to clog the body chemistry."
We can say with certainty that the refusal of treatment will bring more
more harm to the body. On the heart need to worry too much. No wonder it is
called the "heart", that is the core, the center of life.
