By Francis Morris, William Brady, John Camm

Electrocardiography is a vital device in diagnosing cardiac problems. This moment variation of the ABC of scientific Electrocardiography permits readers to get to grips with the big variety of styles visible within the electrocardiogram in medical perform and covers the basics of ECG interpretation and analysis.Fully revised and up-to-date, this variation encompasses a self-assessment part to help revision and cost comprehension, transparent anatomical diagrams to demonstrate key issues and a bigger structure to teach 12-lead ECGs sincerely and with no truncation.Edited and written by means of major specialists, the ABC of medical Electrocardiography is a helpful textual content for an individual coping with sufferers with center issues, either ordinarily perform and in hospitals. Junior medical professionals and nurses, in particular these operating in cardiology and emergency departments, in addition to scientific scholars, will locate this a vaulable advent to the knowledge of this key scientific software.

Sample text

However, since atrial and ventricular depolarisation often occurs simultaneously, the P waves are frequently buried in the QRS complex and may be totally obscured. A P wave may be seen distorting the last part of the QRS complex giving rise to a “pseudo” S wave in the inferior leads and a “pseudo” R wave in V1. Atrioventricular re-entrant tachycardias occur as a result of an anatomically distinct atrioventricular connection. This accessory conduction pathway allows the atrial impulse to bypass the atrioventricular node and activate the ventricles prematurely (ventricular pre-excitation).

The re-entry circuits that support ventricular tachycardia can be “micro” or “macro” in scale and often occur in the zone of ischaemia or fibrosis surrounding damaged myocardium. 1 Non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (a) and accelerated idioventricular rhythm (b). 2 Monomorphic and polymorphic ventricular tachycardia. the effects of myocarditis or drugs—for example, class 1 antiarrhythmics (such as flecainide, quinidine, and disopyramide). Monomorphic ventricular tachycardia usually occurs after myocardial infarction and is a sign of extensive myocardial damage; there is a high in-hospital mortality, more often resulting from impaired ventricular function than recurrence of the arrhythmia.

8 Mechanisms for orthodromic (a) and antidromic (b) atrioventricular re-entrant tachycardia. causing ventricular pre-excitation and producing broad QRS complexes with delta waves. Occasionally an impulse will be conducted via the atrioventricular node and produce a normal QRS complex. The electrocardiogram has a characteristic appearance, showing a rapid, completely irregular broad complex tachycardia but with occasional narrow complexes. 9 Orthodromic atrioventricular re-entrant tachycardia (a) showing clearly visible inverted P waves following the QRS complex, and antidromic atrioventricular re-entrant tachycardia (b) in the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome showing broad complexes.
