Sample text

It is important to scrutinise the tracings from all 12 leads of the electrocardiogram, as P waves may be evident in some leads but not in others Capture beat Fusion beat Concordance can be either positive or negative ABC of Clinical Electrocardiography Positive concordance probably indicates that the origin of the tachycardia lies on the posterior ventricular wall; the wave of depolarisation moves towards all the chest leads and produces positive complexes. Similarly, negative concordance is thought to correlate with a tachycardia originating in the anterior ventricular wall.

A B Normal electrocardiographic changes during exercise x x x x x x P wave increases in height R wave decreases in height J point becomes depressed ST segment becomes sharply upsloping Q-T interval shortens T wave decreases in height C Abnormal changes during exercise The standard criterion for an abnormal ST segment response is horizontal (planar) or downsloping depression of > 1 mm. 5 mm of depression is taken as the standard, the sensitivity of the test increases and the specificity decreases (vice versa if 2 mm of depression is selected as the standard).

Capture beats are uncommon, and though they confirm a diagnosis of ventricular tachycardia, their absence does not exclude the diagnosis. Fusion beats A fusion beat occurs when a sinus beat conducts to the ventricles via the atrioventricular node and fuses with a beat arising in the ventricles. As the ventricles are depolarised partly by the impulse conducted through the His-Purkinje system and partly by the impulse arising in the ventricle, the resulting QRS complex has an appearance intermediate between a normal beat and a tachycardia beat.
