Gresham College - Rhythm Disturbances of the Heart

Our bodies depend on our hearts maintaining a steady beat, and increasing it appropriately in response to exercise. If the heart goes too fast, or too slowly, we have effects ranging from tiredness to unexpectedly passing out to death. This lecture will consider the normal heartbeat, the causes of the heart going too fast or slowly and how it is treated when it does.
