Arrhythmias, wpw syndrome, heart attack & ventricular fibrillation Presentation Transcript

  • 1. INTRODUCTION Four things that will be discuss :1.Arrhythmias 2.Wolff’s-Parkinson-White Syndrome (WPW Syndrome) 3.Heart Attack 4.Ventricular Fibrillation
  • 2. ARRHYTHMIAS Define: Irregular heart beat Description: Problem with the conducting fibers. Can occur in normal or tachycardia or bradycardia heart beat
  • 3. • Abnormal (extra) signals may occur • Electrical signals may be blocked or slowed • Electrical signals travel in new or different pathways through the heart
  • 4. WPW SYNDROME Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome Define: Extra, abnormal electrical pathway in the heart that leads to periods of a very fast heart beat (tachycardia). Description: Can causes by: • Congenital heart disease • Inherited disease • Gene mutation
  • 5. Normal pathway VS WPW syndrome pathway
  • 6. HEART ATTACK Define: When there is a blood clot blocks the flow of blood through a coronary artery Description: Interrupt blood flow that occurs during a heart attack can damage or destroy a part of the heart muscle *also known as myocardial infarction
  • 7. VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION Define: Lower chambers quiver and the heart can't pump any blood, causing cardiac arrest Description: The heart's lower (pumping) chambers contract in a rapid, unsynchronized way. (The ventricles “flutter” rather than beat.) The heart pumps little or no blood
  • 8. CONCLUSION 1. Arrhythmias: irregular heart beat 2. Wolff’s-Parkinson-White Syndrome (WPW Syndrome): extra abnormal pathway for electrical impulse 3. Heart Attack: blood clot block in coronary arteries 4. Ventricular Fibrillation: Ventricular quiver and cannot pump blood or pump very little amount of blood
