A review of the ECG features of right ventricular outflow tract tachycardia (RVOT), a type of VT, with example ECGs.
Isolated low serum Mg levels are associated with atrial depolarisation and ventricular repolarisation abnormalities, predisposing to ventricular arrhythmias
Mixed pattern of RBBB in precordial leads and LBBB in limb leads, with a higher rate of progression to complete heart block than typical bifascicular block
Trifascicular block (TFB) refers to the presence of conducting disease in all three fascicles: RBBB, LAFB, LPFB. LITFL ECG Library
ECG Axis. Hexaxial QRS Axis analysis for dummies. Quick and easy method of estimating ECG axis with worked examples and differential diagnoses
Dressler beat: Specifically a 'ventricular fusion beat' in the presence of paroxysmal ventricular tachycardia. Wide complex tachycardia with VT
Left Bundle Branch Block LBBB - normal direction of septal depolarisation is reversed (becomes right to left), as the impulse spreads
Spodick Sign: Stage I Pericarditis, a downsloping of the TP line. Described 1974 by American Cardiologist, David H Spodick (1927 – 2019)
David H Spodick (1927 – 2019) was an American Cardiologist. Eponymously affiliated with Spodick's sign in acute pericarditis (1974)
The OMI/NOMI paradigm: Better recognising patients with acute ischaemia that will respond to Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
Right Bundle Branch Block (RBBB) activation of the right ventricle is delayed as depolarisation spreads across septum from left ventricle.
An important rhythm distinction between ventricular (VT) or supraventricular (SVT with aberrancy) this will influence your patient management
