Erregungsbildungs- und Erregungsleitungsstörungen

  • D. Kalusche
  • G. Csapo

Zusammenfassung

Erregungsbildungs- und -leitungsstörungen sollen in diesem Kapitel unabhängig von der Ätiologie der Grundkrankheit besprochen werden. Die resultierende Funktionsminderung wird dabei ganz vorrangig durch die Erregungsbildungs- oder -leitungsstörung selbst bestimmt, wenn auch die Prognose ganz entscheidend von der Grundkrankheit und ihrer Schwere abhängig sein kann. So ist z.B. die Funktionsbeeinträchtigung durch Kammerflimmern unabhängig von der Grundkrankheit; die Früh- und Spätergebnisse unseres therapeutischen Vorgehens hängen jedoch entscheidend vom Grundleiden ab. Allein die aus der Erregungsbildungs- und -leitungsstörung selbst sich ergebende Symptomatologie und die erforderliche Diagnostik sollen in diesem Kapitel besprochen werden, ebenso wie im Kapitel „Herzinsuffizienz“Symptomatologie und Diagnostik weitgehend unabhängig von der Ätiologie der Grundkrankheit abgehandelt wurden. Aus diesem Grunde wurde dieses Kapitel auch in die allgemeine und nicht in die spezielle klinische Kardiologie eingeordnet.
