Syncope

ie pause after tachyarrhythmia before resuming sinus rhythm, may be more dangerous than the arrhythmia itself, ie sick sinus syndromeeg transient PR prolongation after retrograde impulse from PVC, or RP interval with 2 alternative AV nodal pathways…

ECG Blog #168 (STEMI – complex AV Block – Laddergram – Calipers) 31936

This ECG is from a middle-aged woman who presented with syncope and hypotension.

This ECG shows sinus tachycardia with inferior ST elevation and reciprocal ST depression in aVL. Also ST elevation in V1 and ST depression in V2-4. The most likely cause was acute inferoposterior MI due to proximal RCA occlusion.

An ECG sent to me with concern for hyperacute T-waves 31632

This ECG is from a woman in her 70s who presented with sudden nausea, diaphoresis and brief syncope.

This ECG shows subtle concave ST elevation in inferior leads and V4-6. The angiogram was normal, troponins negative and echo showed no wall motion abnormality. The most likely cause was a normal variant.

A man in his 40s with chest pain and syncope after cocaine use 31283

This ECG is from a man in his 40s who presented with chest pain and syncope after cocaine use. He had pain at the time of this ECG.

This ECG shows ST elevation in V1-5 with Q waves anterior and inferior. Brugada-like morphology in V1. The cause was an anterior MI.

2 ECGs texted to me. Minimal STE in inferior leads. How important is it? 30511

This ECG is from a patient of unknown age who presented with a syncopal episode and vague chest pain. This was the second ECG taken 24 min later.

This ECG shows subtle inferior ST elevation with reciprocal ST depression in aVL. The cause was a 100% distal RCA occlusion.

Instructors’ Collection ECG : Syncope and tachycardia 29273

This ECG is from a man in his 50s who presented with syncope on a background of diabetes, opiate abuse and possible prior cardiac disease.

This ECG shows a supraventricular tachycardia with evidence of P waves, left axis deviation and slightly wider QRS (106 msec) likely due to LAFB, tall QRS concerning for LVH and fragmentation in V2-4 suggesting prior MI.

This ECG is from a man in his 60s who presented after an episode of syncope.

This ECG shows bifascicular block (RBBB + LAFB) with a first degree AV block. He underwent pacemaker insertion.
