Atrial Flutter With Variable Block
What is atrial flutter with variable AV block with premature ventricular or aberrantly conducted complexes? is same with AV Block heart degres 1?
Atrial flutter is an abnormally fast heart beat usually originating from the right atrium of the heart. It can cause the rest of the heart to beat very fast (called tachycardia). It may cause symptoms of palpitations, chest pain or shortness of breath, to name a few. This serious issue should be evaluated by your cardiologist, and further treatment is dependent ...Read more
Please can you explain what atrial flutter with variable av block
compatible with a bundle branch block. Possible inferior infarction, probably old is?
ECG interpretation.: Atrial flutter: your heart rhythm is abnormal (the atria are contracting very rapidly); variable block: there are a variable number of atrial contractions for every ventricular contraction. A bundle branch block: the ECG complex representing each ventricular contraction is widened due to a block of one branch of your heart's conduction system. Q waves on the ECG suggest an infarct (? Age). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Ekg say flat t waves in v4v5v6.Check av block of higher degree. Absolute arrhythmia, atrial flutter.Inferior myocardial infarction, probably old, normal?
An atrial arrhythmia: The two top chambers of the 4chamber heart are called atria. The normal heartbeat is set off in sinus node, a concentrated bundle of heart cells that sets off the lub (contraction of atria) of the lub dub. Every single heart cell has the capacity to depolarize & set the chambers into contraction. Atrial fibrillation or flutter causes chaotic atrial contrctns. Ekg in flutter looks like a saw tooth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several things: In general atrial flutter is often seen in the setting of an enlarged atrium (which in turn is a result of an enlarged left ventricle), or it could be because of underlying congenital heart disease, or it could just happen without any real well known understanding of exactly why. ...Read more
