Purpose T wave inversion (TWI) is the electrical hallmark of cardiac conditions such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) or arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), which may be the substrate for sudden cardiac death in the young athlete. Such repolarization anomalies can feature on the ECG of an apparently healthy athlete and pose major diagnostic dilemmas in sports cardiology, as regular, prolonged high intensity, physical activity is associated with such repolarization changes. Athletes themselves are reluctant to detrain during the season, which makes interpreting any reversible effects of exercise on the ECG more difficult. This study aimed to investigate the effect of detraining on TWI in athletes. ...
Introduction: While right precordial T wave inversions (RPTWI) are associated with specific cardiomyopathic conditions including ARVC, they are common among trained athletes without underlying heart disease. RPTWI in athletes, particularly those that are not of Afro-Caribbean descent, remain poorly understood and represent a source of considerable clinical controversy. We therefore sought to examine the prevalence, training physiology specificity, and ECG correlates of RPTWI among asymptomatic Caucasian athletes.. Methods: Competitive collegiate Caucasian male endurance athletes (rowers, n=168) and strength-trained athletes (football players, n=162) underwent standard 12-lead ECG at the time of pre-participation screening. ECGs were analyzed for standard quantitative parameters and for the presence of RPTWI defined as TWI ≥2mm in ≥2 leads from V1 to V3.. Results: RPTWI were significantly more prevalent in endurance athletes (25%) than in strength-trained athletes (4%, p,0.001; Figure). ...
Introduction: While it has been proposed that T wave inversions (TWI) in the anterior precordial leads can be a normal finding in the ECGs of Afro-Caribbean athletes, it is uncertain whether this holds true for African-Americans. Hypothesis: TWI in the anterior precordial leads can be a non-specific marker of cardiac disease, and as a result, assuming a benign nature for TWI in the anterior leads in African-American athletes may not be appropriate. Methods: To begin to investigate this notion, we evaluated the incidence of cardiovascular death (CVD) in apparently healthy African- Americans with anterior TWI over an 11 year period. We analyzed the ECGs and CV deaths in 5334 ambulatory African Americans (average age 50 years, 8% female, average follow up of 8 years) seen at the Palo Alto VA Health Care system from 1986 until 1997. T waves were coded as inverted in V2, V3, V4 and V5 if TWI were noted to be more than 1 mm below the PR segment. The leads coded as inverted were summed to create a ...
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the value of a giant negative T wave (, or = 1.0 mV) in precordial leads of 12-lead electrocardiograms in the acute phase of Q wave myocardial infarction as a predictor of myocardial salvage. METHODS: Coronary angiographic and electrocardiographic findings, left ventricular ejection fraction in the chronic stage, and levels of cardiac enzymes were compared in patients with myocardial infarction with (group GNT, n = 31) and without (group N, n = 20) a giant negative T wave. GNT patients were divided into two subgroups according to the presence (GNT:R[+], n = 10) or absence (GNT: R[-], n = 21) of R wave recovery with an amplitude , or = 0.1 mV in at least one lead that had shown Q waves. RESULTS: The maximum level of creatine kinase and the total creatine kinase were lower in group GNT compared with group N (P , 0.05). The left ventricular ejection fraction was higher in group GNT than in group N (P , 0.05). The maximum creatine kinase and total creatine kinase were lower ...

You systematically review the EKG. The heart rate is normal. There is a p wave before every QRS complex, but the p-wave axis is abnormal (negative in lead II). There is now an extreme rightward axis as the QRS is negative in leads I, II and avF. As you analyze the ST segments for evidence of ischemia, there appears to be T wave inversions in the inferior distribution of II, III, and avF. You start considering the differential of ectopic atrial rhythm, right axis deviation, and T wave inversions including PE or ischemia but stop yourself. You think "did someone switch the leads?" You take a brief look at aVR and see that the P, QRS and T waves are positive, making you even more suspicious ...
Alteration in ventricular repolarization occurs during changes in ventricular activation as may occur with ventricular pacing, bundle branch block and various arrhythmias. This may result in T wave abnormalities which persist following cessation of pacing, resolution of bundle branch block or resolution of arrhythmia. Such changes may be confused with ischemia. The phenomenon, known as cardiac memory, is reviewed here in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine. ...

A method of gathering electrocardiographic data is disclosed wherein the EKG data is collected by sequentially monitoring the difference in electrical potential measured at each of at least three patient leads for a time period greater than 15 seconds, preferably for equal time periods of 20 seconds each. Although more than three leads and longer monitoring time periods may be used, a 60-second three-lead EKG data sample in accordance with the present invention is clinically sufficient to monitor cardiac function and to diagnose most cardiac dysfunctions. A system for collecting such electrocardiographic data is also disclosed. The system allows the collected data to be stored for later translation and interpretation. The stored data may also be communicated over phone lines for translation and interpretation at a remote site by trained individuals.
In this chapter, we investigate the most recent automatic detecting algorithms on abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) in a variety of cardiac arrhythmias. We present typical examples of a medical case study and technical applications related to diagnosing ECG, which include (i) a recently patented data classifier on the basis of deep learning model, (ii) a deep neural network scheme to diagnose variable types of arrhythmia through wearable ECG monitoring devices, and (iii) implementation of the health cloud platform, which consists of automatic detection, data mining, and classifying via the Android terminal module. Our work establishes a cross-area study, which relates artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning, cloud computing on huge amount of data to minishape ECG monitoring devices, and portable interaction platforms. Experimental results display the technical advantages such as saving cost, better reliability, and higher accuracy of deep learning-based models in contrast to conventional schemes on
ECG in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with atrial fibrillation: Atrial activity is seen as irregular fibrillary waves suggesting atrial fibrillation. The QRS complexes have a large amplitude in chest leads overlapping between the leads. Tall R waves in lateral leads and deep S waves in anterior leads along with gross ST segment depression with T wave inversion in lateral leads are suggestive of severe left ventricular hypertrophy. The QRS width is also increased to about 120 msec mimicking left bundle branch block. The ECG is from a case of advanced hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with atrial fibrillation. Development of atrial fibrillation leads to cardiac decompensation in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy due to loss of atrial kick. In a hypertrophied ventricle the booster effect of atrial contraction is very important for diastolic filling. Even though the contribution of atrial contraction to ventricular filling in a normal person is about 15 - 20 %, it may be over 30% in an individual with diastolic ...
The discrepancy between the relatively better early outcomes and the similar or even worse long-term prognoses in patients with non-Q wave versus Q wave infarction has led to a more aggressive approach in the management of this group of patients ([3, 5, 10]). Our findings conflict somewhat with reports from the prethrombolytic era ([3-5, 9, 17-19]), in which 1-year mortality was similar or even higher in the non-Q wave infarction populations. The difference could be related to the heterogeneity of the populations, the definitions used and the use of thrombolysis ([3-9, 11]).. Another possible explanation for this disagreement is the initial ST segment deviation. In most studies of Q wave or non-Q wave infarction, the initial ST segment shift was seldom considered a prognostic marker. The observation that patients with initial ST segment depression have a worse prognosis than those with ST segment elevation and either Q wave or non-Q wave infarction ([20-23]), with the additional evidence that ...
The correlation between persistent negative T wave on basal electrocardiogram and coronary anatomy or global and regional left ventricular function was investigated in 34 patients with unstable angina defined as new onset (| 2 months), crescendo or rest angina. The patients with history of previous myocardial infarction, pathological Q waves on electrocardiogram or documented elevation of CPK were excluded. Eighteen patients (group A) showed T wave inversion (| 1 mV) in at least two leads on the basal electrocardiogram, persisting for at least 48 hours before coronary arteriography. In 16 patients (group B) the basal electrocardiogram was normal. Left ventricular volumes and ejection fraction were calculated and the regional systolic wall motion was analyzed using the area method in the 30 degrees right anterior oblique view. Hypokinesis was defined as more than 2 standard deviation below the mean value calculated in 24 normal subjects. No difference was present for age (A: 61 +/- 9 vs B: 57 +/- 9 yrs)
GREAT case! My initial impression looking at the initial ECG was that the leads (especially leads III and aVF) just "looked funny" - almost as if there was some type of lead misplacement. That is, the amount of T wave inversion (especially in lead III) looked extreme - albeit both QRS and ST-T wave appearance in lead III was indeed the precise "mirror-image" of the QRST & ST-T wave in lead aVL …But there is no lead misplacement - as the P wave in lead II is upright, and there is global negativity in lead aVR as there is expected to be. Looking next at the chest leads - not only R wave progression, but also R wave amplitude looks uncharacteristically reduced - which if not due to large body habitus (I dont think this patients body habitus was described … ?) should raise the question if loss of R wave on this initial ECG is the result of an acute ongoing event. Regardless of questions raised by these findings - there is little doubt (as recognized by the treating ED physician) that T wave ...

Early repolarization pattern (ERP) on the 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) is associated with sudden cardiac death (SCD) and increased mortality in certain populations. The mechanism of this association has been hypothesized to relate to regional heterogeneity of epicardial and endocardial repolarization. However, whether differences in subclinical left ventricular wall thickness may affect this association is unknown (1). Individuals with ERP are more likely to meet Sokolow-Lyon ECG criteria for left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH-SL) but are paradoxically less likely to meet Cornell voltage criteria (LVH-C) (2,3). Studies to date are limited by use of ECG measurements to define LVH and are thus not sufficient to determine whether there is a relationship between left ventricular mass (LVM) and ERP. We hypothesized that participants with ERP have a higher LVM and a greater prevalence of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging-determined LVH (LVH-CMR) compared with those without ERP.. The ...

Intraventricular conduction delays such as LBBB and the associated ST segment-T wave abnormalities can mimic both acute and chronic ischaemic changes. Much has been written about the evaluation of the ST segment elevation in the presence of LBBB1,8; considering chest pain patients in the ED, LBBB is responsible for 15% of STE syndromes and is the second most frequently encountered electrocardiographic pattern responsible for non-ischaemic STE.17,18 LBBB, however, can also cause significant ST segment depression, and it is imperative that these electrocardiographic changes be distinguished from those that occur in the presence of ACS.3 The "rule of appropriate discordance" states that in LBBB, ST segment-T wave configurations are directed opposite from the major, terminal portion of the QRS complex. As such, leads with either QS or rS complexes should have significantly elevated ST segments mimicking an AMI while leads with a large monophasic R wave demonstrate ST segment depression. T waves in ...
I will commit myself to commenting before reading Dr. Smiths Blog. I see sinus bradycardia with 1st degree AV block and LBBB. Without yet knowing the history - I see several findings of concern that transcend need (in my opinion) for numerical criteria ... These include: i) ST coving and slight-but-real elevation in leads III and aVF - associated with fairly deep T wave inversion in these leads that is NOT what I expect with typical LBBB; ii) Subtle-but-real ST segment coving that should-not-be-there with simply LBBB in lead II - that supports i) findings; iii) J-point depression with uncharacteristically FLAT ST segment in leads I,aVL (whereas with typical LBBB the ST segment isnt flat, but slowly upsloping) - associated with an upright terminal T wave in these leads (!) that is the mirror-image opposite of what I see in leads III, aVF; iv) An uncharacteristic-for-LBBB takeoff of the ST segment in lead V2 (is typically not so straight at takeoff); and v) 1-2mm of J-point ST depression in ...

Here is a good organized approach to master ECG interpretation. Learning the art of ECG interpretation requires intellect, commitment, effort and - perhaps most importantly - an organized approach.
Signal-averaged electrocardiography (SAECG) is a special electrocardiographic technique, in which multiple electric signals from the heart are averaged to remove interference and reveal small variations in the QRS complex, usually the so-called "late potentials". These may represent a predisposition towards potentially dangerous ventricular tachyarrhythmias. A resting electrocardiogram (ECG) is recorded in the supine position using an ECG machine equipped with SAECG software; this can be done by a physician, nurse, or medical technician. Unlike standard basal ECG recording, which requires only a few seconds, SAECG recording requires a few minutes (usually about 7-10 minutes), as the machine must record multiple subsequent QRS potentials to remove interference due to skeletal muscle and to obtain a statistically significant average trace. For this reason, it is important for the patient to lie as still as possible during the recording. SAECG recording yields a single, averaged QRS potential, ...

QRS width and morphology is in a gray zone. Precise answer really requires review after conversion to sinus rhythm. That said, the QRS looks supraventricular. While one can debate if QRS width is 0.11 vs 0.12 ... the width of the monophasic R wave in lateral leads is not overly wide; the initial r in V1,2,3 is larger than is usual in lbbb; and the QRS just looks supraventricular. Remember that BOTH LAHB and LVH may slightly widen the QRS - and that is my strong hunch of what we have here - :). Delete ...
Even though the electrocardiogram (ECG) is the standard diagnostic test for the evaluation of symptoms of acute myocardial ischemia or infarction, the prognostic value of various ECG features of cardiac ischemia is ill-defined. Savonitto and colleagues conducted a retrospective study of the ECG findings among patients in the Global Use of Strategies to Open Occluded Arteries in Acute Coronary Syndromes (GUSTO-IIb) trial.. A total of 12,142 patients were enrolled in the GUSTO-IIb trial. To be enrolled in the study, patients had to have ECG signs of myocardial ischemia, including transient or persistent ST-segment elevation or depression of more than 0.05 mV or persistent and definite T-wave inversion of more than 0.1 mV. All patients had to have reported symptoms of cardiac ischemia at rest within 12 hours of hospital admission. Since the GUSTO-IIb trial was a comparison of heparin and desirudin, patients were excluded if they had active bleeding, a history of stroke, an elevated serum creatinine ...

It is now time to "solve" the laddergram. We accomplish this by filling in the AV nodal tier for those beats we had been uncertain about. It should be emphasized that we are not necessarily certain about the mechanism of the arrhythmia at this point (If we were, we wouldnt be doing this laddergram). Instead - We are looking for a plausible theory to explain the problematic elements of the rhythm strip. In this case - this entails explaining: i) WHY beats #2,5,8 occur early; ii) HOW the P waves immediately following these beats can occur right on time; and iii) WHY no QRS complex is seen after these non-conducted P waves ...

A long philosophical introduction that places electrocardiography in its proper perspective among the cardiological diagnostic techniques makes for enjoyable reading of this primer right from the beginning.. The analogy of the lead systems used to investigate the electrophysiology of the heart to blind men observing an elephant inside a box is quite appropriate.. A brief history of electrocardiography and an introduction into anatomy, physiology, and electrophysiology precede chapters on the normal electrocardiogram, arrhythmias, atrioventricular and intraventricular conduction defects, muscle injury and death, and atrial and ventricular enlargement.. Clearly, the emphasis is on presenting concepts in a simplified but up-to-date manner. ...
Conventional 12-lead electrocardiography, the most widely used diagnostic approach for analyzing ECG changes in patients with suspected acute myocardial infarction (AMI), has a clinical sensitivity of 80% and specificity of 95% in patients with anterior AMI from occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery (2). These percentages are lower when investigating other coronary arteries, such as the circumflex coronary artery and right coronary artery (clinical sensitivity, 53%; specificity 98%) (2). The differences in the reliability of ECG in detecting AMI depend on the different left ventricular mass, producing electrical abnormalities in 12-lead ECG and on differences in electrode location. Sensitivity can be enhanced if 24 or 19 leads are used. The location of AMI involving a small (,2 cm) area of the midbasal interventricular septum may be overlooked in the ECG in terms of ST-segment elevation, showing only an isolated QS complex on V1 and V2 with a small R wave. The ECGs (Fig. 1) ...
With adenosine, the rhythm stopped briefly, but then immediately reinitiated. The EKG, however, changed considerably to this EKG. (Beta blockers were administered and had little affect on the patients tachycardia rate. Note that the 5th and 7th beats of the subsequent EKG have the same morphology as the wide complex beats seen in the first EKG, except the 7th beat is somewhat narrower, making it consistent with a fusion beat between the narrow-complex rhythm and a PVC. Hence, the wide complex beats in the original EKG are from a ventricular source (ventricular bigeminy) and the narrow-complex beats are being driven by a long-RP supraventricular tachycardia (the second rhythm of the tango ...

BACKGROUND: A slower heart rate can exaggerate J-point elevation in a 12-lead ECG. This study examined the role of Holter monitoring in the diagnosis of early repolarisation pattern (ERP). METHODS: We examined 24-hour Holter recordings of 4000 consecutive patients seen at an outpatient clinic, and found 500 patients (12.5%) with ERP (based on J-point elevation magnitude maximum value≥0.1mV on the Holter recording). The highest magnitude of J-point elevation, R wave amplitude, the ratio between J-point elevation magnitude and R-wave amplitude on the same ECG lead (J/R ratio), QRS interval, and QT/QTc interval were measured on the Holter recording and on a surface 12-lead ECG of the 500 patients with ERP ...
BACKGROUND: Recently, a lower incidence of late potentials has been reported in patients with acute myocardial infarction after successful thrombolysis when compared with conventionally treated patients. In another recent study, however, no significant effect of thrombolytic therapy on any abnormal signal average electrocardiography was found at 13 days after acute myocardial infarction. The present study was designed to determine the prognostic significance of the signal average electrocardiography and to evaluate the possible value of this technique as a noninvasive tool for monitoring of coronary occlusion and reperfusion. METHODS: Signal averaging was performed by using a signal average electrocardiography with bidirectional filterings before coronary artery occlusion, at 5 minutes after coronary occlusion and on reperfusion in 20 cats. Three of them died due to malignant ventricular arrhythmia during reperfusion. In all cats, approximately 250 beats were averaged. All data were analysed at ...

They report their own findings (3, 4) that isoproterenol "in similar therapeutic doses" resulted in ischemic ECG changes.. Shim and Williams administered overdosages of isoproterenol from pressurized aerosol containers to asthmatic patients without heart disease. Puffs of 100 µg were given in repeated doses of either two puffs every 5 min or five to 10 puffs every 20 min. There were no arrhythmias or changes in ST segments. The authors concluded that the drug is safe ...
Hello Dr Smith, I wanted to discuss a case with yourself. I was asked to give advice recently for a young 37 year old, male, south east asian patient. He was admitted with headache, no chest pain. Had a recent fall, subsequently developed headache. CT head was fine. He had t wave inversions in I,avl, v5 and v6 with biphasic t wave in v1 and v2 as in wellen syndrome. Although he did not have any chest pain but he had risk factors as increased cholesterol, +ve family history and he was a smoker. i know we do not treat ECG and we treat the patient but I was kind of reluctant to discharge him with that kind of Ecg and with risk factors. What would your advice be?. ReplyDelete ...

1. The elevated beta-receptor responsiveness to adrenergic stimuli makes subjects with the primary hyperkinetic cardiac syndrome ideal for studying the electrical and dynamic responses of the heart to sympathetic activation.. 2. In twelve men presenting with the syndrome, the effects of mental arithmetic and painful (cold) stress on the cardiac inotropic state were tested and correlated with the concomitant electrocardiographic changes.. 3. Arithmetic and cold evoked responses opposite and divergent from the base-line state: The former induced vasodilatation, enhancement of cardiac rate, output, contractility and deep T wave inversion; the latter caused vasoconstriction, cardiac depression and full restoration of repolarization.. 4. The sympathetic outflow elicited by stress is not generalized, but selectively directed to different circulatory levels in relation to the stimulus at work; cardiac sympathetic stimulation or inhibition has opposite effects on the repolarization phase.. ...
With an interdisciplinary appeal, this book, based on case reports, shows a number of new concepts on P-wave evaluation and QRS depolarization properties. It addresses a significant gap in ECG interpretation, which is the actual cause of many poor decisions in the diagnostic context.
A 30-year-old male injured in the left hemithorax was transferred to our emergency department 8 hours after aggressive initial resuscitative thoracotomy, total left pneumectomy and cardiopulmonary maneuvers. He was admitted in shock, midriasis and with core temperature of 32°C, after 1.5 hours of interhospital transportation. A ventricular fibrillation occurred and was treated with two biphasic shocks. An electrocardiogram showed: an absence of P waves, a ventricular rate of 78 beats, narrow QRS complexes, a prolonged QT interval and a J (Osborn) wave (Figure 1). The patient was resuscitated by the principles of early goal direct therapy and was submitted to external and internal rewarming processes. Although there was an effective and clear diuresis, an improvement in lactic acidosis and central venous saturation, and a body temperature of 36°C, the patient had cerebral death declared on the second day and died on the third day. ...
As the terminology implies this is a block in the right bundle branch. Does this cause the heart to slow down like we see in some AV blocks? No, because we still have the left bundle working the electrical impulse simply travels down the left side and then spreads across to the right ventricle. Ok, its not as efficient as both bundles working at the same time, but its still enough to make both ventricles contract albeit in a different direction from the norm and with a slight delay. How does this manifest on the ECG? Well, perhaps the most obvious sign is a change in the QRS morphology in the right precordial leads - namely the typical RSR pattern. Why the RSR pattern? Well, its all about vectors. The second R wave is produced by the wave of depolarisation spreading from the left ventricle to the right ventricle i.e. toward the right precordial leads. Anything that moves toward a lead will produce a positive complex. Dont forget that in a normal ECG V1 should be predominantly negative. There ...
Objective: The del Nido cardioplegia solution provides a long period of arrest with single dose as compare to St. Thomas cardioplegia solution. In our study we compared outcomes of del Nido and St. Thomas cardioplegia in adult open cardiac surgeries. Methods: Sixty patients were studied between January 2017 to December 2017. Out of which 30 patients were operated on St. Thomas cardioplegia and 30 patients were on del Nido cardioplegia solution. Outcome was compared in both group in relation to demographic, cardiac enzymes level, cardiopulmonary bypass data and post operative results. Results: Total cardiopulmonary bypass time (111.27 ± 40.791 vs. 131.77 ± 37.97, P = 0.049), Aortic cross clamp time (71.67 ± 27.68 vs. 87.00 ± 30.95, P = 0.048), Time taken for return of cardiac contraction after de-clamping the aorta (2.40 ±1.453 vs. 3.67 ± 1.971, P = 0.006), dose of cardioplegia required (1361.67 ± 362.388 vs. 2716.67 ± 927.021, P=0.001) repetition of Cardioplegia needed (1.37±0.490 vs. ...

Assessment of cardiac structure and function is central to the care of patients with heart disease. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is the gold standard for such assessment, however it is expensive and oftentimes not readily accessible. We sought to evaluate the utility of electrocardiographic (ECG) and impedance-based parameters in estimating the amount of myocardial scar, left ventricular (LV) systolic function and myocardial deformation. Consecutive patients (n = 241; 42% female; mean age 55 years) undergoing clinical CMR and ECG assessments were recruited. ECG analysis was performed manually, using both the Modified Selvester Score (MSS) and the presence of fractionated QRS (fQRS) signals, and impedance testing using the Non-Invasive Cardiac System (NICaS). While MCS was of value, neither fQRS nor NICaS meaningfully predicted scar extent, LV systolic function. Or the amount of myocardial deformation. These results support additional investigation of the utility of the MSS in estimating ...
Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Previous studies suggested that patients with COPD have an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). In the general population altered cardiac repolarization has been identified as independent risk factor for SCD. However, the prevalence of altered cardiac repolarization has not been defined in patients with COPD.. Methods: In 91 COPD patients (GOLD I-IV, mean age 62.0 (SD 7.1)), 31 control subjects matched for age, cardiovascular risk factors (Pocock score) and medication, and 41 healthy subjects, measures of cardiac repolarization (QT interval, Tpeak-to-Tend (TpTe) interval) were derived from 12-lead electrocardiography. The prevalence rates of heart rate corrected QT (QTc) ,450ms and TpTe (TpTec) ,110ms were determined to assess the number of subjects at risk for SCD.. Results: QTc was significantly longer in COPD patients compared to matched controls ...
Results The early-repolarization pattern of 0.1 mV or more was present in 630 subjects (5.8%): 384 (3.5%) in inferior leads and 262 (2.4%) in lateral leads, with elevations in both leads in 16 subjects (0.1%). J-point elevation of at least 0.1 mV in inferior leads was associated with an increased risk of death from cardiac causes (adjusted relative risk, 1.28; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.04 to 1.59; P=0.03); 36 subjects (0.3%) with J-point elevation of more than 0.2 mV in inferior leads had a markedly elevated risk of death from cardiac causes (adjusted relative risk, 2.98; 95% CI, 1.85 to 4.92; P less than 0.001) and from arrhythmia (adjusted relative risk, 2.92; 95% CI, 1.45 to 5.89; P=0.01). Other electrocardiographic risk markers, such as a prolonged QT interval corrected for heart rate (P=0.03) and left ventricular hypertrophy (P=0.004), were weaker predictors of the primary end point. ...

Over the past decade, significant advances were made in the research, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Such progress was in every sphere of cardiology that includes non-invasive, minimally invasive, and invasive technologies. Interpretive electrocardiography, cardiac pacemakers, cardiac stents, and angioplasty are some areas where the progress has been significant. Non-invasive methods of diagnosis of cardiac disorders involve digital recording of cardiac signals at the body surface (chest) and subsequent computerized analysis. Such methods and instruments provide a vital first step to the diagnosis of the heart without involving surgical procedures. One such non-invasive field is High Resolution Electrocardiography (HRECG). A high-resolution electrocardiogram detects very low amplitude signals in the ventricles called Late Potentials in patients with abnormal heart conditions. A standard electrocardiogram cannot detect these signals. The presence of late potentials is ...
PR interval is the period from the onset of P wave to the start of the QRS complex on electrocardiograms. A recent genomewide association study (GWAS) suggested that GAREM1 was linked to the PR interval on electrocardiograms. This study was designed to validate this correlation using additional subjects and examined the function of Garem1 in a mouse model. We analyzed the association of rs17744182, a variant in the GAREM1 locus, with the PR interval in 5646 subjects who were recruited from 2 Korean replication sets, Yangpyeong (n = 2471) and Yonsei (n = 3175), and noted a significant genomewide association by meta-analysis (P = 2 ...

Interesting case study with unique evolution in a patient with a pacer. From a qualitative standpoint - I also thought ECG #1 which was completely paced was not diagnostic. Although one might raise questions about the relative amount and shape of ST-T wave change in V3-thru-V6, and especially about the unusual "shelf" of the ST segment in lead V2 - I didnt think any of these findings were specific enough to call anything acute in a 100% paced tracing. That said, it WOULD have been of interest to have access to a prior completely paced tracing - since IF the above changes were markedly different compared to a prior paced baseline ECG, that might THEN be potentially significant. In contrast, ECG #2 (as noted by Dr. Smith) IS diagnostic for acute STEMI. In addition to satisfying modified Sgarbossa criteria - Ill emphasize the utility of direct lead-to-lead comparison between ST-T appearance in ECG #2 compared to what it was in ECG #1. There should be no doubt about the new "shelf" of ST elevation ...

For what is the 12-lead electrocardiogram used?. The electrocardiogram at rest enables the measurement of the frequency and rhythm of the heart, as well as some parameters of heart muscle function. In particular, the ECG enables the detection of possible cardiac rhythm disorders (called cardiac arrhythmias). The ECG also makes it possible to detect any disturbances in cardiac muscle spraying (myocardial ischemia) or changes in the size of the heart chambers (for example myocardial hypertrophy). On the other hand, the electrocardiogram under stress can help in the diagnosis of latent heart disease.. What are the preparation rules and the risks of the 12-lead ECG?. The electrocardiogram procedure does not require any preparation. There are no contraindications for performing the standard electrocardiogram. The exam is safe and painless, and can be performed at any age, even in the newborn, and repeated whenever necessary. The only collaboration required of the patient is to remain still and ...

While ST segment changes (both elevation and depression) are associated with an acute coronary syndrome, numerous other clinical entities manifest ST segment depression. Appropriate management partially is dependent upon differentiating these various causes of ST segment depression on the ECG.
Looking at an EKG can be very intimidating and difficult to understand for a lay person. EKG interpretation is a little tricky at first, but with some persistence, you can put together what the P wave, QRS, and T wave correspond to as the heart is working. Since Normal Sinus Rhythm is the easiest and most common rhythm, we are going to start there, then look at abnormalities starting from the atrial heart arrhythmias and working down to the ventricular arrhythmias. I will also cover ectopy and b

UPDATED) The MATRIX trial found no advantage to bivalirudin over unfractionated heparin in reducing major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) or net adverse cardiovascular events (NACE) in ACS patients undergoing PCI. Now a new analysis confirms that this lack of difference in ischemic and thrombotic complications extends to patients both with and without persistent ST-segment elevation.. "Bivalirudin has been shown to be associated [with] a mortality difference only in STEMI, whereas in NSTE ACS, some studies have seen an excess of periprocedural events," senior author on the study Marco Valgimigli, MD (Swiss Cardiovascular Centre, Bern, Switzerland), told TCTMD in an email. "So it was important to check the consistency of the MATRIX results across type of ACS.". The MATRIX results were originally presented at the American College of Cardiology 2015 Scientific Sessions, as reported by TCTMD. This prespecified substudy, led by Sergio Leonardi, MD (Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo, Pavia, ...
Dr. Smith, looking at the two examples of hyperacute T-waves in your book on pg. 76 and 77 and de Winters paper from 2008 show the T-wave to be of much greater amplitude than the R-waves. Ive been looking at ECG 1 and your interpretation and Im curious how the T-wave in V3 meets large/hyperacute criteria. In absolute terms I count 6 mm of T-wave amplitude from the depressed J-point. The V3 QRS voltage appears normal to me, and the T-wave amplitude ratio to the 7 mm R-wave, while close in amplitude, is less than one. They also dont seem very wide and their concave morphology looks normal ...

How do you assess ST elevation on these ECGs? First, find the lead which you believe most clearly manifests the end of the QRS. I believe that in this ECG it is lead V4. Then draw a line down to the lead II rhythm strip at the bottom. Then, using the same point on the complex under leads (I, II, III), (aVR, aVL, aVF), (V1, V2, V3), you can draw a line up and see the end of the QRS in all leads. In this way, one can see the subtle, downsloping ST elevation in aVL, with reciprocal ST depression in II, III, and aVF ...

During the past decades the knowledge concerning risk factors and pathophysiology of coronary heart disease (CHD) has substantially increased. However, despite identification of important risk factors CHD remains the leading cause of death in the western world.. The metabolic syndrome is a cluster of metabolic disorders such as hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, low HDL-cholesterol, and glucose intolerance associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.. The studies in this thesis are epidemiological in their character, and examine the relationships between different aspects of CHD and the metabolic syndrome in a population-based study of middle-aged men (ULSAM).. The findings indicated that serum lipids were important risk factors for the development of both angina pectoris demanding revascularisation and acute myocardial infarction (MI). Proinsulin and blood pressure were independent predictors of MI only, suggesting these factors to be involved in thrombosis and ...

An improved electrocardiography system displays and records electrocardiograph (ECG) signals provided on multiple pickup leads attached to a patient. The system has the capability of selectively displaying standard preprogrammed lead configurations or lead groups, and provides the operator with the additional capability of programming selected leads from various groups to form a monitor group. Selected ECG signals are routed to a four-channel oscilloscope and a three-channel strip-chart recorder, the system providing the operator with a freeze capability such that a signal appearing on one of the oscilloscope channels may be displayed in a stationary state on the fourth oscilloscope channel, and subsequently printed out on the strip chart recorder. The system further provides an auto lead capability for fully automated successive recording of test data from leads in successively accessed conventional lead groups, and further provides an auto cycle mode of operation for fully automated repetitive

Abstract. Background: Accurate, non-invasive diagnosis of, and screening for, coronary artery disease (CAD) and restenosis after coronary revascularization has been a challenge due to either low sensitivity/specificity or relevant morbidity associated with current diagnostic modalities.. Methods: To assess sensitivity and specificity of a new computerized, multiphase, resting electrocardiogram analysis device (MultiFunction-CardioGramsm or MCG a.k.a. 3DMP) for the detection of relevant coronary stenosis (,70%), a meta-analysis of three published prospective trials performed in the US on patient data collected using the US manufactured device and analyzed using the US-based software and New York data analysis center from patients in the US, Germany, and Asia was completed. A total of 1076 patients from the three trials (US - 136; Germany - 751; Asia - 189) (average age 62 ± 11.5, 65 for women, 60 for men) scheduled for coronary angiography, were included in the analysis.

Oversensing results when there is inappropriate sensing of extraneous electrical signals (skeletal muscle activity, electrical interference). These electrical signals are interpreted by the pacemaker as intrinsic activity and as a result the pacemaker does not fire. It is recognized by absent pacemaker spikes and ventricular asystole. These inappropriate signals may be large P or T waves, skeletal muscle activity or lead contact problems. Abnormal signals may not be evident on ECG ...
