Aslanger et al identified a specific ECG pattern concerning for acute inferior occlusion MI in patients with concomitant multi-vessel disease, that does not display contiguous ST-segment elevation or fulfil STEMI criteria
Dressler beat: Specifically a 'ventricular fusion beat' in the presence of paroxysmal ventricular tachycardia. Wide complex tachycardia with VT
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)
Right Bundle Branch Block (RBBB) activation of the right ventricle is delayed as depolarisation spreads across septum from left ventricle.
Bazett formula 'corrects' the measured QT interval to a value (QTc) attributable to a heart rate of 60 bpm. Thus providing a QT interval value that a particular patient would theoretically have if their heart rate was 60 beats/min
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
Samuel Albert Levine (1891-1966) Polish-American cardiologist. Eponym: Levine sign; Levine grading scale; Lown-Ganong-Levine
Bifascicular block is the combination of RBBB with either LAFB or LPFB. Conduction to the ventricles is via the single remaining fascicle.
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.
Heinrich Irenaeus Quincke (1842 - 1922) was a German physician. Quincke's name is eponymous with Quincke's pulse (1868), Quiuncke's oedema (1882), Quincke's achorion (1886), and Quincke's puncture (1891).
