ECG Blog #169 (Tachycardia - Regular SVT - Calipers)

The patient whose ECG is shown in Figure-1 was hemodynamically stable. There was debate among his providers as to what the rhythm in this ECG was.
  • What do YOU think the rhythm is?
  • What is the differential diagnosis?
  • Why can you be virtually certain what this rhythm is even before treating and before any diagnostic maneuvers?
Figure-1: The initial ECG in this case (See text).

ANSWERS: Detailed discussion of this case and the differential diagnosis can be found in the November 12, 2019 post on Dr. Stephen Smith's ECG Blog!
