Diagnosis and management of common fetal arrhythmias


Weber, R; Stambach, D; Jaeggi, E T (2011). Diagnosis and management of common fetal arrhythmias. Journal of the Saudi Heart Association, 23(2):61-66.

Abstract

Fetal arrhythmias are detected in at least 2% of unselected pregnancies during routine obstetrical scans. Most common are transient, brief episodes of a slow or fast heart rate or of an irregular heart rhythm. Less common are prolonged or persistent abnormalities such as supraventricular tachycardia and complete heart block which may lead to low cardiac output, fetal hydrops and demise. The objectives of this review are to update the reader on the diagnosis and management of the more common arrhythmias.
