Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Abnormal Electrical"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Abnormal Electrical Pathways

  1. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) uses radiofrequency energy to destroy abnormal electrical pathways in heart tissue.

Abnormal Electrical Discharge

  1. A seizure is often accompanied by an abnormal electrical discharge in the brain.

Abnormal Electrical Signals

  1. A seizure occurs when part(s) of the brain receives a burst of abnormal electrical signals that temporarily interrupts normal electrical brain function. (Web site)
  2. Some of these abnormal electrical signals can travel to the ventricles, causing them to beat too fast and with an irregular rhythm. (Web site)
  3. It's done to detect abnormal electrical signals that may result from the thickened heart muscle. (Web site)


  1. Ventricular tachycardia (VT). This fast, regular beating of the heart is caused by abnormal electrical impulses that start in the ventricles.
  2. Abnormal electrical signals cause the lower chambers of the heart (the main pumping chambers) to beat too fast.
  3. They are too fast, too slow, or conducted via an abnormal electrical pathway through the heart.

Nervous System

  1. These medications stabilize abnormal electrical activity in your nervous system caused by injured nerves.
  2. Myoclonic jerk-like movements are caused by an abnormal electrical discharge in the nervous system. (Web site)


  1. The irregular rhythm, or arrhythmia, results from abnormal electrical impulses in the heart. (Web site)
  2. The abnormal electrical activity results from localized areas of abnormal brain tissue.


  1. Abnormal electrical activity can occur anywhere along this conduction system, including in the muscle cells of the atria or ventricles. (Web site)

Small Area

  1. With a simple partial seizure, the abnormal electrical discharges occur in just a small area of the brain, called the focal area.


  1. The heart may appear enlarged on x-ray or ultrasound and may show abnormal electrical activity on an ECG (electrocardiogram). (Web site)
  2. An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) can identify any abnormal electrical activity.

Certain Types

  1. A seizure happens when there is certain types of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. (Web site)

Clinical Presentation

  1. An isolated abnormal electrical activity recorded by an electroencephalography examination without a clinical presentation is not called a seizure. (Web site)

Partial Seizures

  1. Partial seizures take place when abnormal electrical brain function occurs in one or more areas of one side of the brain. (Web site)

Brain Cells

  1. They are due to temporary abnormal electrical activity of a group of brain cells. (Web site)


  1. Partial seizures occur when abnormal electrical activity involves only one area of the brain. (Web site)
  2. Symptoms of epileptic seizures depend upon the area of the brain affected by the abnormal electrical discharge.

Temporal Lobe

  1. A temporal lobe seizure is an episode of abnormal electrical activity in the temporal lobe on one or both sides of the brain. (Web site)


  1. Epilepsy is a recurrent seizure disorder caused by abnormal electrical discharges from brain cells.
  2. In about 50 to 70% of all cases of epilepsy, the cause of the abnormal electrical impulses is unknown.

Normal Heartbeat

  1. It works by blocking the abnormal electrical activity of an abnormal heartbeat so that the normal heartbeat can occur.
  2. The purpose of the cardioversion is to interrupt the abnormal electrical circuit(s) in the heart and to restore a normal heartbeat. (Web site)


  1. This sudden, abnormal electrical activity in the brain can be a result of effects of opioid drugs on the central nervous system.
  2. The abnormal area is responsible for the abnormal electrical discharges which result in the seizure. (Web site)
  3. Most tachycardias are the result of an abnormal electrical circuit. (Web site)


  1. In contrast, arrhythmias that are due to fast, abnormal electrical activity can cause tachycardias that are dangerous. (Web site)
  2. As a result, EP studies can help locate the specific areas of heart tissue that give rise to the abnormal electrical impulses or arrhythmias.


  1. The disorganized structure of the heart leads to abnormal electrical activity (arrhythmias) and problems with the heart's contraction. (Web site)
  2. Documents and describes abnormal electrical activity in the heart during daily activities to help doctors determine the condition of the heart.
  3. The practitioner first "maps" an area of the heart to locate the abnormal electrical activity before the responsible tissue is eliminated.

Supraventricular Tachycardia

  1. In this way, the EP study can map any abnormal electrical activity, identify the type of supraventricular tachycardia you have, and guide treatment.
  2. In supraventricular tachycardia, abnormal electrical connections (or abnormal firing of the connections) cause the heart to beat too fast. (Web site)
  3. An episode of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) occurs when abnormal electrical impulses suddenly start in the upper chambers of the heart.


  1. EPILEPSY - Disorder characterized by abnormal electrical discharges in the brain, causing abnormal sensation, movement or level of consciousness.
  2. In generalized seizures, the abnormal electrical discharges occur throughout the brain, whereas partial seizures only affect a specific region of the brain.
  3. An EEG on a patient with encephalitis may show an abnormal electrical activity in the brain. (Web site)


  1. A seizure is a sudden alteration of behavior or consciousness caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain. (Web site)
  2. A seizure is a sudden change in behavior due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
  3. A seizure is the physical findings or changes in behavior that occur after an episode of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. (Web site)

Abnormal Electrical

  1. A partial seizure is an episode of abnormal electrical activity in one specific part of the brain.
  2. A partial seizure is a result of abnormal electrical discharges in one specific area of the brain.
  3. This type of seizure arises from abnormal electrical activity in the temporal lobe on one or both sides of the brain.
