    Cardiac arrhythmia is a group of conditions in which the electrical activity of the heart is irregular or is faster or slower than normal.
    Some arrhythmiae are life-threatening medical emergencies that can cause cardiac arrest and sudden death. Others cause aggravating symptoms, such as an awareness of a different heart beat, or palpitation, which can be annoying. Some are quite small and normal. Sinus arrhythmia is the mild acceleration followed by slowing of the normal rhythm that occurs with breathing. In adults the normal resting heart rate ranges from 60 beats per minute to 100 beats per minute. The normal heart beat is controlled by a small area in the upper chamber of the heart called the sinoatrial node or sinus node. The sinus node contains specialized cells that have spontaneous electrical activity that starts each normal heart beat.

    10 papers? That's great!

    Where are you for residency? that will be a big determinant. Will your chair/program director write a good letter for you? that will be another determinant.

    Step scores...hmmm...could be a problem but this is a who you know vs. a what you can do field.

    hey. so i'm applying for residency positions and i'm confused as to how i should rank these programs. i want to do cardiology and obviously i want to have a good program behind my name, but, firstly, it's difficult really to know what's considered a "good program" and, secondly, what I feel are "good programs" aren't really where I want to be. Would it be horrible to rank Georgetown or GW over Mayo or NYU? I would much prefer to be in DC but I don't want to compromise my chance of matching into cardiology. How can I find out how GW, Georgetown, Jefferson, Univ of MD, etc are viewed in the field of cardiology? What are the "top 20" programs that I hear people talk about? I'm really not an anxious person but I feel that applying for a cardiology fellowship is the first thing I'm doing in life where I have a good chance of being rejected. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. . .

    generally with any curriculum vitae type thing, the only things that really count as being 'published' are things that have already been put into print, or have been accepted and is in the processing of being printed. anything that has been submitted or is about to be submitted should still be put down however, but its important not to misrepresent it as something that is published work.

    Why
    I'm new to this site and I'm not really familiar with a lot of things. I'm studying cardiology, just the very basics, on my own. I would like to ask why isn't atherectomy as popular as CABG and angioplasty? All answers are welcome. Thank you.

    I know there is a thread for "rank list help" but can someone help me differentiate some of these IM programs in terms of what will get me into the best Cardiology fellowship (IM resident/cards fellow?). How are some of these better/worse than the others?

    Location not really an issue but I'd like to come back to the east coast for fellowship if possible.
