Physics of Cardiac Arrhythmias

``... From making the cure of a disease
More grievous than its endurance
Good Lord, deliver us.''

                                                ~ Robert Hutchinson

``O heart, small urn
of porphyry, agate or cornelian,
how imperceptibly the grain tell
between a heart-beat of pleasure
and a heart-beat of pain"
                                                ~ Hilda Doolittle

``Inferior doctors treat the full-blown disease,
Mediocre doctors treat the disease before it is manifested,
Superior doctors prevent the disease.''

                                                ~ Ancient Chinese proverb
