We recorded heart rhythms of 40 older patients (20 medicated for cardiovascular disease and 20 not medicated for cardiovascular disease) during an outpatient oral surgery visit to determine overall arrhythmia incidence and severity, differences in incidence associated with cardiovascular medication status, and the impact of surgical intervention on arrhythmia incidence. We hypothesized that both groups would show similar arrhythmia numbers and types during surgical visits and that a history of… CONTINUE READING
