Example text

Diffuse intraventricular block is often produced by an extensive MI. Another ECG abnormality is left atrial hypertrophy, which is manifested by deep and broad negative P waves in leads V1-2. Cardiac Rhythm Strips: Note the sinus P waves (arrows). The underlying cardiac rhythm is sinus (rate: 90 beats per minute), but there is an intermittent artificial pacemaker-induced ventricular rhythm (P) (rate: 70 beats per minute). The artificial pacemaker takes over the ventricular activity whenever an unexpected ventricular pause is longer than the pre-set pacing escape interval.

His ventricular arrhythmia required immediate treatment. In the presence of a longstanding systemic hypertension and angina pectoris, propranolol (lnderal) should be the first choice of drug because it would be of benefit for the patient's ventricular arrhythmia and his hypertension, as well as his angina. Oral propranolol should be tried (10 to 40 mg, three to four times daily). 4 gm every 6 hr), or procainamide (250 to 500 mg every 3 to 4 hr), should be tried as an anti-arrhythmic drug. Malignant ventricular arrhythmias (see Table 8), especially in the presence of coronary heart disease, should be suppressed aggressively.

What is the treatment of choice? 34 Ambulatory Electrocardiography Diagnosis 12-lead ECG: The cardiac rhythm is a demand pacemaker-induced ventricular rhythm (rate: 73 beats per minute) with an occasional sinus beat (the fifth and the twelfth). The evidence of an old diaphragmatic myocardial infarction is shown only in lead aVF. The artificial pacemaker is functioning normally, as seen from the 12-lead EeG findings. Holter Monitor ECG: Strips A through E are not continuous. The artificial pacemaker functions normally in the strip A, but in the remaining strips (B through E) a malfunction of the demand ventricular pacemaker can be seen.
