Intestinal arrhythmia (CA) can denote two states. One is associated with disorders of the intestine, which is complicated by arrhythmia. Another is a ventricular contraction disorder, which is most often expressed in a rapid heartbeat (tachycardia).
Intestinal arrhythmias are not considered in ICD-10, therefore, they are not considered an isolated disease. The use of the term is associated with the clinical manifestation of pathology.
Diagnosis of the disease is performed using ECG, ultrasound examination, general clinical tests. Additional research methods in the form of Holter monitoring may be used. Since intestinal arrhythmias, which arise from violations of the activity of the ventricles heavier in their course than in diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, in the first case more often prescribed medication and drugs for the treatment of intestinal arrhythmia.

Medicinal treatment of intestinal arrhythmia
Patients with first-time arrhythmias should be surveyed in the clinic. In severe forms of rhythm disturbance, the sick are sent to the hospital.
The purpose of medical treatment is often carried out according to the following strategies:

If the patient has been repeatedly observed attacks of arrhythmias and besides the expressed symptoms there are no hemodynamic changes, then it is possible to change the type of attack in the home. For this home in the first-aid kit you should have such preparations: panangin, alcohol tincture of hawthorn, anaprilin in tablets, myorelaxant (seduxen or relanium).
In case of the next attack of arrhythmia, the following scheme of its cure is recommended:
- Before each meal, 20-30 drops of hawthorn for a quarter of a glass of water are drunk.
- Together with food or after (in order not to irritate the stomach) two tablets of anaprilin are taken and one - panangina.
- Before sleep, about half an hour, a muscle relaxant is taken. If you do not have it, you can use fenazepam.
Miorelaksants can not be taken on an ongoing basis, since there is an addiction. Therefore, their use is possible only once, to restore normal heart rhythm.
