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?
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?
