Example text

Reentrant arrhythmias In contrast to the limited usefulness of antiarrhythmic drugs in treating automatic arrhythmias and channelopathies, these drugs, at least in theory, directly address the mechanism responsible for reentrant arrhythmias. A functioning reentrant circuit requires a series of prerequisites— an anatomic or functional circuit must be present, one limb of the circuit must display slow conduction, and a second limb must display a prolonged refractory period (to produce unidirectional block).

C) However, once the h gate becomes activated, lidocaine binds to it. ) Because of the rapid unbinding of lidocaine, however, it quickly unbinds from the h gate. (d) Just before the next action potential is generated, lidocaine is no longer bound. (e) The next activation of the sodium channel therefore proceeds normally, and no slowing of conduction occurs. Panels (f) through (j) illustrate the effect of flecainide, a drug with slow kinetics. Panels (f) through (h) show reactions identical to those in panels (a) through (c).

2). An antiarrhythmic drug that might be effective against automatic tachyarrhythmias is likely to reduce one or both effects. Unfortunately, no drug has been shown to reliably improve abnormal automaticity in cardiac tissue. Therefore, the mainstay of therapy is to treat the underlying illness and reverse the metabolic abnormalities causing abnormal automaticity. 2 Abnormal automaticity causes rapid, spontaneous generation of action potentials and, thus, inappropriate tachycardia. , caused by early afterdepolarizations (EADs)) or catechol dependent (caused by delayed afterdepolarizations (DADs)), are related, as we have seen, to abnormal oscillations in the action potential.
