ORTIZ, Edison Muñoz; AGUDELO, Juan Fernando; VELASQUEZ, Jesús  and  AREVALO, Edwin F.. Arrhythmias in pregnant patients. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2017, vol.24, n.4, pp.388-393.  Epub Feb 02, 2017. ISSN 0120-5633.

Cardiac arrhythmias are frequent complications in pregnancy and their incidence even increases during this period, supraventricular being more common than ventricular ones. Arrhythmias in pregnancy also entail a risk to develop fetal adverse effects due to the arrhythmia itself, as well as due to the potential risks of drugs used for their treatment. This article reviews the most relevant aspects regarding the mechanism and treatment of arrhythmias in pregnant patients.

Keywords : Arrhythmias; Pregnancy.
