The prevalence of cardiovascular diseases such as atrial tachyarrhythmias (ATa) has become prevalent worldwide. A discussion on the detection, monitoring, termination, and prevention of ATa is presented. Rhythm control is defined as maintenance of sinus rhythm. One measure of rhythm control is the percent of time spent in atrial tachyarrhythmias, commonly referred to as ATa burden. Rhythm control can be attempted with antiarrhythmic drugs, atrial ablation, or implantable devices. This paper gives attention to the management of ATa using implantable devices. Such devices must detect ATa accurately and either prevent them from recurring or terminate them by using electrical stimulation techniques
