What you'll learn

A bradyarrhythmia is a disturbance in the heart rhythm, which is characterized by an abnormally slow heart rate, usually less than 60 beats per minute. However, a slow heart rate itself is not necessarily a pathologic condition. For instance, low heart rates may normally be seen during sleep. Moreover, the normal adult resting heart rate can range as low as 45beats per minute.read more »»

Ageing generally includes increased fat and collagen deposition is seen around the sinoatrial node which results in action potential. Causes for bradyarrhythmias include hypoxia, hyperkalemia, hypothermia, and hyperthyroidism. Bradyarrhythmias are divided into sinoatrial bradyarrhythmias and atrioventricular bradyarrhythmias based on the site of origin. The diagnosis of bradyarrhythmias is done carefully based on the individual characteristics of ECG. By the end of this course you will be able to discuss the causes of Bradyarrhythmia, enlist the classification of bradyarrhythmia and analyze the ECG characteristics for different types of bradyarrhythmias.
