Cardiac Pacemaker In Situ
A pacemaker is a device which sends electrical signals to the heart triggering heartbeats when needed. There are many ways to implant and configure a pacemaker; it may beat the top chambers (atria), lower chambers (ventricles) or both. Some systems stimulate both the left and right ventricles together. Pacemakers generally treat abnormally slow heart rhythms and certain ...Read more
Yes, by tracing only: It is an abnormal ekg by reading of the tracing but what is most important is the ekg in relation to a good history and clinical exam. Questions to ask: do you have a past history of heart disease, high BP, diabetes, smoking? Do you have chest pain/jaw pain/pain down L arm? Is your BP high on exam? Any of these findings along with the above ekg is a MAJOR concern. Please talk with your doctor!! ...Read more

In 65 y/o female with asthma and previous cardiac arrest W/ROSC during Pulm. Embolectomy W/ CPB. Which is safest method for pericardial window?
Complicated question: You ask a VERY complicated question about a complex medical history. The 1st thing to ascertain: "why do you need a pericardial window?" Normally, they are for recurrent cardiac effusions; despite the dramatic surgery & event, effusions aren't typical after cardiac arrest. 2nd, need to know why pulm embolism developed. TTYD or use HealthTap Prime to find answers/specialists. Not enough space here. ...Read more
Is this correct? "Wolff Parkinson white synd. is an electrical abnormality in the heart where an accessory pathway exists leading to rapid heart rate"
Ekg say flat t waves in v4v5v6.Check av block of higher degree. Absolute arrhythmia, atrial flutter.Inferior myocardial infarction, probably old, normal?
With congestive heart failure or coronary ischemia would the oxygen saturation shown on the monitor at hospitals drop?
Is Cardiac MRI, Cardiac CT, or ECHO... better for diagnosing structural heart diseases such as arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia?
ECG 12 leads: Normal sinus rhythm,Possible Left atrial enlargement,Inferior infarct,ACUTE MI / STEMI, Abnormal ECG
When compared with ECG of 30-MAR-2015 ST elevation now present in Inferior leads. BUT troponins are ok. Is it heart attack?
SVT Is the lifetime chance of devoloping venticular fibrillation due to accesory pathway capable of anterograde conduction <1% When ecg was normal?
Wpw : Extremely low if antegrade conduction so rare ...Read more
Have res cardiomyopathy from cardiac sarcoid found from card biopsy developed arrhythmias may need defib implanted ..does the defib shock hurt me?
Hmmmm...: Ventricular fibrillation usually causes rapid unconsciousness, so you might be unaware of the event. However, if you're still conscious at the time of the shock, you may feel it. People vary so widely in their pain threshold and tolerance that it's not possible to predict for you. Since the alternative is "Sudden Cardiac Death", a brief, uncomfortable sensation is worth enduring. Best wishes ...Read more
