What's holiday heart syndrome?
Atrial fibrillation.. Due to alcohol.
Heart takes a holiday with you :P
Yup when people do binge drinking for the first time. Or after a long time!
Meaning of fibrillation?
I'm not clear about it.
It's paroxysmal..The patient can die. It's like when your atria dont contract in one motion.
There are several simultaneous impulses generated that stimulate the atria. Hence rather then contracting in a syncitium the atria simply fibrillate. Meaning many many sad attempts at contraction, none of them strong enough to push blood in the ventricles.
Flutter is like a less severe form of fibrillation.
