The Effect of Hyperventilation on Various Arrhythmias
The influence of hyperventilation on various cardiac arrhythmias is examined. Auricular and ventricular extrasystoles disappear temporarily, paroxysmal auricular and ventricular tachycardias aswell as attacks of short paroxysmal auricular fibrillation are abolished by hyperventilation. An attempt is made to explain these phenomena.
