Example text

This rhythm is often called ‘wandering atrial pacemaker’. m. • More than two P wave morphologies. Multiple pacemakers outside the sinoatrial node. Multifocal atrial tachycardia Fig. 1 p' Lead III. p'' p''' III p'''' SECTION 1 19 CASE 9 LOC 00000 – 0000 Limb: 10 mm/mV Chest: 10 mm/mV 50 V6 V3 aVF III Speed: 25 mm/sec V5 V2 aVL II II V4 V1 aVR I A 70-year-old lady with a stroke CASE 10 0 . 15 – 150 Hz 20 ➔ Idiopathic ➔ Hypertension ➔ Mitral valve disease ➔ Cardiomyopathy ➔ Thyrotoxicosis ➔ Alcohol ➔ Sick sinus syndrome ➔ Cardiac surgery ➔ Autonomic ➔ Hypothyroidism ➔ Hyperkalaemia ➔ Sepsis Causes of atrial fibrillation This lady was taking digoxin, 125 micrograms daily.

Normal QRS axis • Ventricular premature beats (Fig. 1): – occur earlier than expected, no preceding P wave – abnormal shape, wider than sinus beats – followed by a full compensatory pause • Abnormal Q waves in leads II, III, aVF suggesting an old inferior myocardial infarction • Poor R wave progression in the anterior chest leads, consistent with an old anterior infarction FEATURES OF THIS ECG When VPBs have different morphologies they are called multifocal. P waves may often be identified in the T wave following a VPB, either as a result of retrograde conduction (P wave early and negative), or as dissociated sinus events (same P–P interval and morphology as the usual P wave).

The resting ECG of this patient is shown on page 208. , left axis deviation • Typical features of WPW syndrome with AF (Fig. 1): – wide complex irregularly irregular rhythm – ‘pure’ delta waves – very short R–R intervals (shortest approximately 160 ms) • There is a RBBB pattern (V1 positive): – this suggests a left-sided accessory pathway FEATURES OF THIS ECG • Atrial fibrillation may be conducted rapidly to the ventricles when an accessory pathway is present. A wide complex, rapid tachycardia with an irregularly irregular rhythm occurs.
