Abstract
Arrhythmias have a high incidence in our population, and since the emergence of new methods in electrophysiology, the mechanism of most tachycardias can be identified. This allows not only to progress in the understanding of their pathophysiology but also in the treatment of arrhythmias, either in an emergency situation or in the chronic phase. The goal of this review is to give some therapeutic advice in case of rhythmic emergencies, keeping in mind that any arrhythmia should be subject to a cardiological work-up to seek specific treatment outside the emergency phase. The proposed therapies in this article are the ones which we are used to apply, but they differ depending on the areas. The final goal is to render service to the patients by trying to be as less damaging as possible, knowing that the understanding of the arrhythmogenic mechanism is not always possible. We hope that the little advice this review contains will be of use for the practitioner and for those who are confronted with patients suffering of acute arrhythmia.
