Sticking with the same general theme from my last ECG Challenge for the months of September and October, 2013. This is more of a back-to-basics for some readers but will still challenge others. No information for this patient other than it was an adult. How would you interpret this?
Ventricular premature beat
These are two 12-lead ECGs that I performed on two completely different patients several years apart.
Patient's clinical data (Top ECG):
57-year-old black man
Patient's clinical data (Bottom ECG):
67-year-old black man
Are both of these ECGs showing the same rhythmic pattern?
I performed this ECG earlier this year in an outpatient clinic.
Patient's clinical data: 85-year-old white man; asymptomatic.
(1.) What rhythm is this tracing showing?
(2.) What clue/sign is used to differentiate between the two anomalous beats (i.e., 4th and 6th beats). HINT: It's named after a part of a certain animal's anatomy.
This is a "Routine" resting 12-lead ECG I performed on a patient several months ago in the Outpatient ECG Lab.
PATIENT CLINICAL DATA:
72-year-old white man; asymptomatic; resting comfortably in recumbent position.
This is an exercise in "anomalous" beats.
(1.) Specifically, what are 3rd, 4th, and 10th beats?
