ECG Abnormalities_Part 19

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

 You are the house officer on call for the telemetry floor and a nurse calls you with an abnormal rhythm seen on telemetry. The patient was admitted 2 days previously for a congestive heart failure exacerbation. He denies any symptoms including chest pain, palpitations, lightheadedness, or shortness of breath. Vital signs are normal. You ask for a 12-lead ECG which is below:

You go back to sleep and are soon called again for another abnormal rhythm seen on the same patient which is intermittently occurring. The patient is still asymptomatic and vital signs are still normal. Another 12-lead ECG is obtained which is below:

What are the ECG abnormalities?

  57. The first is SR @ 84 bpm, normal axis, early transition of precordial leads in V2, but most importantly a U wave seen in all leads which may indicate an electrolye imbalance (K+). Specifically Hypokalemia.

    The second 12 lead EKG also has a normal axis (even with the wide complex tachycardia. V1 shows the narrow complex as a RBBB patern which is new from the previous ECG, and a LBBB pattern with the wide complex tachycardia. Additionally, the wide complex tachycardia shows negative in V1 with no "fat R-wave, notched or slurred QS, and a positive complex in V6. I do not beleived that this is VT. I think the patient is blocking in the bundle branches depending on the rate. When the patient goes into SVT, the rate is fast and a LBBB is the result.

    #1 - SR with U waves.
    #2 - Aberrantly conducted SVT.
