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
Also known as primary sinus tachycardia, inappropriate sinus tachycardia (IST) is a generally benign condition that has a prevalence of ~1% in the general population
Bifascicular block is the combination of RBBB with either LAFB or LPFB. Conduction to the ventricles is via the single remaining fascicle.
Epsilon wave is a small positive deflection buried in the end of the QRS complex on the ECG. Characteristic ARVD arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia
The Osborn wave or J wave is a positive deflection at the J point (negative in aVR and V1) LITFL ECG Library basic interpretation
Atrioventricular Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia (AVNRT) is a type of SVT and is the commonest cause of palpitations in patients with hearts exhibiting no structurally abnormality.
Defined as PR interval > 200ms, commonly caused by AV nodal blocking drugs
RPWT is the time from onset of earliest Q wave or R wave to the peak of the R wave in lateral leads
ST segment is the flat section of the ECG between end of S and start of the T wave between ventricular depolarization and repolarization EKG
