Arrhythmias and Autonomic Dysfunction

The Libin Institute is committed to lowering the number of sudden cardiac deaths, common heart arrhythmias (abnormal heart beats) and fainting through transformative research. This is a research priority because sudden cardiac death is the leading cause of premature death for patients over 65 in North America. 

The Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta has identified two priorities to focus on for the next five years. This is one of those priorities.
