Miller, C. and Flaherty, D. (2017) Anaesthetic-associated cardiac arrhythmias in dogs and cats: part 2. Companion Animal, 22(11), pp. 640-645. (doi: 10.12968/coan.2017.22.11.640)

The first article in this series (Miller and Flaherty, 2017) discussed the pathophysiology of peri-anaesthetic arrhythmias, and their generic treatment, with a more in-depth focus on bradyarrhythmias; this second article focuses on tachyarrhythmias. These fast heart rates can dramatically affect cardiac output and may have marked consequences for haemodynamic stability. A description of those tachyarrhythmias commonly seen in relation to anaesthesia is followed by a discussion on treatment considerations and options.
