ECG Blog #95 (ECG Video-Blog-1) – Is there AV Block?

-----------------------------------------
     I have just revised this Video (1/27/2014 which was the first installment of my ECG Video Blog. This new version is greatly improved from my original recording on 8/16/2014 (demonstration to how much I've learned these past 5 months). Please Give Me Your Feedback (ekgpress@mac.com).
-----------------------------------------
NOTE: There are advantages to using a video format format. These include:
  • Ability to illustrate concepts not done full justice by the written word.
  • Greater dispersion of my content through Google & YouTube. This material is free for anyone to use.

    Interpret the simultaneously-recorded 2-lead rhythm strip shown in Figure-1.
    • Is AV block present on this tracing? IF so — What kind of AV block?
    • Is there enough information to know for certain?
    • How does one distinguish AV block from other causes of relative pauses, such as PACs (blocked or conducted) and/or Sick Sinus Syndrome?

    2. I always learn something new that will help me to teach others about EKG interpretation. Your video blogs make it easy for someone to follow along as you discuss the nuances of the various complexes that are seen in the strip. Excellent job
