  • Arrhythmias | Northwell Health, formerly North Shore-LIJ Health System
    factors Diagnosis Treatment Overview An irregular heartbeat is an arrhythmia A normal heart rate is 50 to 100 beats per minute but arrhythmias and abnormal heart rates don t necessarily occur together Arrhythmia symptoms can occur with a normal heart rate or with heart rates that are slow or rapid Northwell Health facilities including the Heart Rhythm Center at Lenox Hill Hospital are equipped with the latest technology to manage and treat cardiac arrhythmias providing a range of minimally invasive procedures in addition to open surgery including ablation of cardiac arrhythmias pacemaker and defibrillator implantation and removal of malfunctioning or abandoned pacemaker leads using laser technology Causes Depending on the specific condition arrhythmias may be caused by Abnormal contractions of the atria the heart s upper chambers or ventricles lower chambers Rapid circuits in the atria Electrical impulses originating in the wrong area of the heart Abnormality in the heart s conduction electrical system Malfunction of the sinoatrial node the heart s natural pacemaker An extra electrical pathway is present Scarred tissue from previous heart attacks Symptoms These may include fatigue palpitations too fast or two slow heartbeat shortness of breath and heart attacks Types Atrial fibrillation A fib Atrial fibrillation the most common arrhythmia in the world causes the atria to contract abnormally Approximately 2 million to 3 million Americans suffer from this debilitating arrhythmia that often leads to symptoms of fatigue palpitations and shortness of breath and can put the patient at risk for strokes Atrial flutter This arrhythmia is caused by one or more rapid circuits in the atrium Atrial flutter is usually more organized and regular than atrial fibrillation Atrial tachycardia Atria tachycardia occurs when the electrical impulses that regulate the heartbeat originate in the wrong area of the heart Paroxysmal atrial tachycardia PAT In PAT the heart beats too fast because there is an abnormality in its conduction electrical system Episodes of paroxysmal atrial tachycardia can be brief but sometimes can last for hours and be very serious Premature atrial contractions PAC These contractions in the atria occur too early in the rhythm sequence because abnormal electrical impulses signal the atria to beat prematurely PAC are very common and can happen in a healthy patient Sick sinus syndrome SSS Not a specific disease SSS is a group of signs or symptoms indicating that the sinoatrial node the heart s natural pacemaker is not functioning properly Some patients with SSS also have rapid heartbeats or the heartbeat alternates between too fast and too slow Sinus tachycardia This arrhythmia has an elevated rate of impulses originating from the sinoatrial node the heart s natural pacemaker Symptoms of sinus tachycardia are defined as a heart rate greater than 100 beats per minute in an average adult Supraventricular tachycardia SVT This means that from time to time the heart s electrical system doesn t work properly and your heart beats very fast for a reason other than exercise high fever or stress Types of SVT include Atrioventricular nodal reentrant

    of the fingers which may or may not be painful The symptoms of arthritis may resemble other medical conditions or problems Always consult your physician for an accurate diagnosis Types These types of rheumatic diseases can affect the knee joint and connective tissues Osteoarthritis The most common form of arthritis osteoarthritis is also known as wear and tear arthritis It often occurs in your knees because your knee joints like your hips and spine are weight bearing joints This chronic rheumatic disease damages and thins the knee joint s articular cartilage the smooth and glistening covering on the ends of your bones that enables your knee joint to glide smoothly Osteoarthritis also narrows the space in which the knee joint moves Osteoarthritis predominantly affects older people but it also can occur in young people as a result of a knee injury or overuse Rheumatoid arthritis This inflammatory disease attacks the lining of your knee joint synovium and is one of a group of arthritis diseases known as inflammatory arthritides Rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic autoimmune disease that can attack any joint A chronic disease it is characterized by periods of flare ups and remissions and can affect people of all ages Rheumatoid arthritis of the knee can cause permanent destruction and deformity of the knee joint even before symptoms are severe The cause of rheumatoid arthritis of the knee is unknown Post traumatic arthritis Despite proper treatment and full recovery from an injury post traumatic arthritis may develop years after a fracture ligament injury or meniscus tear a tear in the connective tissue of the knee Fibromyalgia This chronic condition causes pain stiffness and tenderness of the muscles tendons and joints without the detectable inflammation easily noticed in many other rheumatoid diseases that affect the joints Risk factors There are no known causes of arthritis but there are certain risk factors that can make you more susceptible to arthritis including Heredity Slight joint defects or double jointedness laxity and genetic defects may contribute to the development of arthritis Obesity Over time excessive weight can place undue stress on joints such as the knees hips and spine Injury or overuse A significant injury to a joint such as the knee can later result in arthritis even if your injury was treated properly at the time Repeated overuse or misuse of a joint also may cause injury Occupation Certain occupations involving repetitive movements of the joints are associated with arthritis Osteoarthritis most often affects the joints in the knee hip spine and hand because those joints are often overused and abused Increasingly people who work at computers every day are developing osteoarthritis because of the repetitious nature of keyboard entry for hours at a time In addition the joints in the knee hip and spine have to carry your body weight That s why people who are overweight or obese are at higher risk for developing osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis predominantly affects people 45 years of age and older but it also can occur
