ECG Case: Regular Wide Complex Tachycardia

Amal Mattu

Your first thought is VT? Look how wide are those QRS complexes. In case of such wide complexes you should first think of toxicologic and metabolic causes (hyperkalemia & severe acidosis)

ECG Case: MI in Paced Rhythm

Amal Mattu

It possible to diagnose MI in paced rhythms, you just need to use Sgarbossa’s criteria: 1. STE ≥ 1mm concordant with QRS deflection in any single lead 2. STD ≥ 1mm in V1, V2, OR V3 that is concordant....

ECG Case: Deformed T-waves

Amal Mattu

Always look for P-waves. They might be buried in T-waves or QRS complexes. Their presence and correlation with QRS complexes is important in differential diagnosis of brady- and tachyarythmias.

ECG Case: Complete Heart Block

Amal Mattu

Look carefully for the P-waves or you will miss the proper diagnosis! Little blimbs that you see in lead II are regular - those are the P waves. There is no relation between them and QRS complexes which...
