An Introduction to Arrhythmia
Advances in the understanding of arrhythmias has improved diagnosis and led to the discovery of new therapies. Large-scale studies into the direct oral anticoagulation treatment paradigm continue to improve patient selection, and technological advances such as hand-held ECG devices and implantable loop recorders have been shown to aid in arrhythmia detection.

Trudie Lobban, HRC 2021 – the A-A Heart Rhythm Congress 2021
Trudie Lobban (Founder and Trustee of the Arrhythmia Alliance, Chair of the HRC Organising Committee) introduces the A-A Heart Rhythm Congress 2021 (launching 3rd October 2021) and provides an overview of what to expect from this year’s meeting, why healthcare professionals should register, who can attend, and why the virtual platform will make this the […]
COVID-19 and Cardiac Arrhythmias
European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology. 2021;7(1):33-39 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/EJAE.2021.7.1.33
The current outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), has developed into a worldwide pandemic affecting millions of lives in one way or another.1 Over the period of 1 year since the disease was first reported from Wuhan, China,2 COVID-19 has infected over 50 million patients and resulted […]
Update on Etripamil Nasal Spray for the At-home Treatment of Acute Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia
Heart International. 2021;15(1):2-6 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/HI.2021.15.1.2
Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) defines a group of cardiac arrhythmias where the underlying mechanism is dependent upon structures at or above the level of the atrioventricular node. The recent PRE-EMPT study retrospectively evaluated health records of over 4.2 million people in the USA, estimating PSVT incidence at 73/100,000, and national prevalence at 168/100,000 (translating into […]
Sanjiv Narayan, EHRA 2021 – AI and ML Models in Arrhythmias and Cardiac Electrophysiology
It was a pleasure to talk to Dr Sanjiv Narayan (Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA) around the implementation of artificial intelligence and machine learning models in the field of arrhythmias and cardiac electrophysiology. Questions What are the major challenges in implementing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) models in the field of arrhythmias and […]
Sanjiv Narayan, EHRA 2021 – Applications of Computer Modelling and Machine Learning
We were delighted to talk to Dr Sanjiv Narayan (Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA) around the applications of computer modelling and machine learning in the field of arrhythmias and cardiac electrophysiology. Questions What are artificial intelligence or machine learning and how could they be used in cardiology? (0:25) Could you give us some examples of […]
Rhythm Disorders in Endocrinology
European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology. 2021;7(1):12-18 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/EJAE.2021.7.1.12
Several closely regulated ion channels are involved in the various phases of the myocardial action potential (phases 0–4) (Figure 1).1 In the absence of neuroendocrine and other regulatory signals, the pacing rate of the sinoatrial node is 100 beats per minute (bpm). However, heart rate is not fixed, and varies along with cardiac output in order […]
Supraventricular Tachycardia: Electrocardiogram Diagnosis and Clinical Management for the Non-electrophysiologist
European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology. 2021;7(1):4-11 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/EJAE.2021.7.1.4
Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) occurs with a prevalence of 2–3/1,000 in the general population and is characterised by atrial rates >100 beats per minute (bpm) at rest. Per definition, SVT originates in the atria or atrioventricular (AV) node tissue above the His bundle.1,2 Diagnosis and clinical management of SVT have been the focus of recent European Society […]
New Supraventricular Tachycardia Initiative Seeks to Help Patients Find the Best Possible Care and Support
European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology. 2021;7(1):2-3 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/EJAE.2021.7.1.2
Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is, as its name implies, a tachycardia or elevated heart rate (more than 100 beats per minute) that originates above the ventricles (i.e. in the atria). Or, to use the specific terminology of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), SVT “literally indicates tachycardia, the mechanism of which involves tissue from the His […]
Haran Burri, EHRA 2021: Highlights from EHRA 2021
We caught up with Prof. Haran Burri (Lead Cardiac Physiologist, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK) on his highlights from the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) Virtual Meeting 2021. Questions: What are your highlights from this year’s virtual EHRA 2021 congress? (0.21) Speaker disclosures: Prof. Haran Burri has received institutional fellowship and research support and speaker […]
