HERZRHYTHMUSSTOERUNGEN UNDVERKEHRSTUECHTIGKEIT

The following heart-rhythm disturbances, which can significantly affect vehicle control, are individually discussed: extrasystolic beats, paroxysmal tachycardia, acute auricular fibrillation, adams-stokes attacks, carotid syndrome, and heart-rhythm disturbances due to infarctions and to defective pacemakers. After a brief general description of the individual problems, special attention is given to their effect upon driving ability, and there is also some discussion of treatment and prophylaxis.
