ECG Blog #109 (Interesting Tachycardia - Video)

As a novel concept — I thought I would post this short (1.5 minute) video I edited from material provided to me by Alex Kroeze. The patient was hemodynamically stable
Figure-1: Freeze-frame of the interesting SVT rhythm in this video. See YouTube link for additional monitoring. NOTE — Enlarge by clicking on Figures — Right-Click to open in a separate window.
MORAL of this Video: — that artifact unfortunately often precludes accurate determination of atrial activity (therefore disguising the mechanism of tachycardias such as this one ...).
  • PACs seem to occur at the onset of the SVT (SupraVentricular Tachycardia) runs — but underlying artifact makes discerning what happens a bit elusive ...
That said — fun to look at (to the music of Vivaldi's 4 Seasons).

ACKNOWLEDGMENT: My appreciation goes to Alex Kroeze for allowing me to edit and post his tracings.
