Some key aspects on the subject are also mentioned. Services on Demand Article. The following findings are helpful in establishing the presence of AV dissociation. If they are P waves, they occur in 1: See “Overview of advanced cardiovascular life support in adults” and see “Overview of basic cardiovascular life support in adults”. An atrial rate that is faster than the ventricular rate is seen with some SVTs, such as atrial flutter or an atrial tachycardia with 2: Key clinical characteristics of inherited long QT syndrome LQTS are shown, including prolongation of QT interval on electrocardiogram ECGcommonly associated arrhythmia torsades de pointesclinical manifestation, and long-term outcomes.

Some patients with a WCT have few or no symptoms palpitations, lightheadedness, diaphoresiswhile others have severe manifestations including chest pain or angina, syncope, shock, seizures, and cardiac arrest [6].


See “General principles of the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator”. The QRS complexes are not preceded by P waves.

More importantly, the presence of an ICD implies that the patient is known to have an increased risk elecgrica ventricular tachyarrhythmias and suggests strongly but does not prove that the patient’s WCT is VT. The QRST complexes of the sinus-conducted beats are normal. The arrhythmia is often responsive to treatment with b blockers, sotalol9 or calcium channel blockers and can also be amenable to transcatheter ablation. Alta probabilidad de TV Solo puede explicarse: Patients who become unresponsive or pulseless are considered to have a cardiac arrest and are treated according to standard resuscitation algorithms.

The first occurrence of the tachycardia after an MI strongly implies VT [7]. If all precordial leads are predominantly positive, the differential diagnosis is an antidromic tachycardia using a left sided accessory pathway or a VT. This type of re-entry may occur in patients with anteroseptal myocardial infarction, idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, myotonic dystrophy, after aortic valve surgery, and after severe frontal chest trauma. Of course other factors also play a role in the QRS width during VT, such as scar tissue after myocardial infarctionventricular hypertrophy, and muscular disarray as in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Symptoms are primarily due to the taquicardi heart rate, associated heart disease, and the presence of left ventricular dysfunction [4,6,7]. Of course, QRS width is not helpful in differentiating VT from a tachycardia with AV conduction over an accessory AV pathway because such a pathway inserts into the ventricle leading to eccentric ventricular activation and a wide QRS complex fig 6.

Hence, this VT has a favourable long term prognosis when compared with VT in structural heart disease. Los botones se encuentran debajo. BRHH preexistente ancianos con fibrosis sist. An antidromic circus movement tachycardia with AV conduction over a right supraveentricular accessory pathway. Eje muy negativo QRS axis in the frontal plane The QRS axis is not only important for the differentiation of the broad QRS ccardioversion but also to identify its site of origin and aetiology.

Such patients should have continuous monitoring and frequent reevaluations due to the potential for rapid deterioration. The prognosis is generally good, but these patients may be highly symptomatic.

ECG, January 2017

When any of criteria 1 to 3 was present, VT was diagnosed; when absent, the next criterion was analyzed. This is a tachycardia not arising on the endocardial surface of the right ventricular outflow tract but epicardially in between the root of the aorta and the posterior part of the outflow tract of the right ventricle. AV dissociation may be present but not obvious on the ECG.

This tachycardia arises more anteriorly close to the interventricular septum.

That area is difficult to reach by retrograde xardioversion ventricular catheterisation and when catheter ablation is considered an atrial transseptal catheterisation should be favoured. Ablation of supraventricular tachycardia resistant to medical treatment and electrical cardioversion in a pregnant woman.

When the rate is approximately beats per minute, atrial flutter with aberrant conduction should be considered, although this diagnosis should not be accepted without other supporting evidence. The origin of this QRS electria cannot be known with certainty, and may be supraventricular with intraventricular aberration, junctional, or ventricular. Desencadenadas con esfuerzo Bien toleradas.


In some cases of VT, the ventricular impulses conduct backwards through the AV node and capture the atrium referred to as retrograde conductionpreventing AV dissociation [21]. Ventricular Pared ventricular lateral libre…. A diagnosis of myocardial ischemia or infarction cannot be made with certainty in the presence of a left intraventricular conduction delay. Figure ej gives an example of QR complexes supraventricualr VT in patients with an anterior panel A and an old inferior myocardial infarction panel B.

However, the lack of response to medical treatment and electrical cardioversion is rare. While the presence of AV dissociation largely establishes VT as the diagnosis, its absence is not as helpful for two reasons: Lo primero la estabilidad del paciente TCA. An inferior axis is present when the VT has an origin in the basal area of the ventricle. In this setting, emergent synchronized cardioversion is the treatment of choice regardless of the mechanism of the arrhythmia.

Muesca en descenso inicial del QRS neg. In the setting of AMI, this rhythm could indicate either reperfusion or reperfusion injury.


Cardiac arrhythmias are common complications during pregnancy, and it appears that the incidence of arrhythmias has been increasing in patients with and without structural cardiac disease. Regularity — VT is generally regular, although slight variation in the RR intervals is sometimes seen. As described in the text, lead V1 during LBBB clearly shows signs pointing to a supraventricular origin of the tachycardia.

The QRS complexes have an LBBB pattern, but because ventricular depolarization may not be occurring over the normal AV node His-Purkinje pathway, definitive statements about underlying intraventricular conduction delay cannot be made.
