Predicting Arrhythmias Could Help Prevent Them

2015 02 Oct

Researchers at McGill University have discovered a way of predicting cardiac arrhythmias before they even occur. The finding could lead to an improved cardiac device that is designed to detect and prevent arrhythmias. The researchers focused on a potentially fatal form of arrhythmia occurring in a condition, called the long QT syndrome, which runs in...
