The paper is concerned with the results and analysis of transesophageal electrocardiostimulation in 383 patients before and in hospital over 6 years for urgent therapy of brady- and tachyarrhythmias. The method was assessed using a simple, recoverable and effective first aid element in combined resuscitation measures, in therapy of paroxysms of supraventricular tachycardia, in patients with the sinoatrial node weakness syndrome during cardioversion and narcosis, in primary and repeated pacemaker implantations, in acute myocardial infarctions complicated by bradyarrhythmias. Transesophageal electrocardiostimulation in urgent therapy of bradyarrhythmias, the sinoatrial node weakness syndrome, disorders of permanent electrocardiostimulation with fits of Morgagni-Adams-Stokes syndrome is an uncomplicated method of choice and a stage before temporary endocardial and permanent electrocardiostimulation.
