Unfortunately, no drug has been shown to reliably improve abnormal automaticity in cardiac tissue. Therefore, the mainstay of therapy is to treat the underlying illness and reverse the metabolic abnormalities causing abnormal automaticity. 2 Abnormal automaticity causes rapid, spontaneous generation of action potentials and, thus, inappropriate tachycardia. , caused by early afterdepolarizations (EADs)) or catechol dependent (caused by delayed afterdepolarizations (DADs)), are related, as we have seen, to abnormal oscillations in the action potential.
