-----------------------------------------
     This is the 3rd installment of my ECG Video Blog. This 11-minute video features a case of a patient with SVT (SupraVentricular Tachycardia) with chest pain and marked ST depression on his 12-lead ECGPlease give me Feedback on how you like these ECG Video-Blogs!

The patient is a previously healthy 60-year old man who presented with palpitations and new-onset chest pain. He was on no meds — and had no prior history of heart disease. BP = 70 systolic at the time the 12-lead ECG in Figure-1 was obtained.
  • What is the rhythm in Figure-1?
  • Why so much ST segment depression?
  • What are your diagnostic considerations?
  • What would you do?

Dr. Ken Grauer - ECG Video-2 (Blog #96) - ECG Diagnosis of BBB (August 31, 2014)



-----------------------------------------
     This is the 2nd installment of my ECG Video Blog. This 17-minute video reviews how to make the ECG diagnosis of BBB (Bundle Branch Block) in 5 seconds or less. Please Give Me Feedback (ekgpress@mac.com) as to whether you like this new Video format.

ECG Diagnosis of the bundle branch blocks can be simplified — and readily accomplished with accuracy in seconds. This is because: i) There are only 3 "answers" ( = typical LBBB; typical RBBB; or neither = IVCD); and ii) You only need to look at 3 leads to diagnose the type of BBB ( = leads I, V1, V6— as shown in the Figure below.

Interpret the simultaneously-recorded 2-lead rhythm strip shown in Figure-1.
  • Is AV block present on this tracing? IF so — What kind of AV block?
  • Is there enough information to know for certain?
  • How does one distinguish AV block from other causes of relative pauses, such as PACs (blocked or conducted) and/or Sick Sinus Syndrome?
