Sample text

In fact, the P waves are larger than QRS complexes when measured from the right atrium and easy to see. With PSVT, there is one P wave with each QRS, and with flutter there are two or more for each QRS. You will not see flutter with 1:1 conduction and a ventricular rate of 300/min. If and when that occurred, a heart rate of 300 beats/ min would be too rapid to allow diastolic filling and would lead to hemodynamic collapse. Atrial flutter, like AF, is not an example of AV dissociation. There is a definite relationship between atria and ventricles, with P waves intermittently getting through the AV node and stimulating the ventricles.

1). For it to be significant, the negative deflection has to be deep enough and wide enough to contain a small box (1 t 1 mm). 3)'(4 Left atrial abnormality (LAA) occurs when there is pressure or volume overload of the atrium. Patients with hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy have elevation of the LV diastolic pressure, and this is transmitted to the left atrium since the mitral valve is open during diastole. The left atrium must contract against the stiff LV. LAA has been identified as the most consistent, early ECG abnormality in hypertension, appearing well before other features of left ventricular hypertrophy.

The left atrium must contract against the stiff LV. LAA has been identified as the most consistent, early ECG abnormality in hypertension, appearing well before other features of left ventricular hypertrophy. Before this discovery I often read ECGs with isolated LAA as borderline rather than abnormal. Now I call such ECGs abnormal, as LAA indicates an end-organ effect of elevated pressure—hypertensive heart disease— and a need for more aggressive antihypertensive therapy. LAA can be a transient finding.
