- Adenosine-Sensitive Wide-Complex Tachycardia: An Uncommon Variant of Idiopathic Fascicular Ventricular Tachycardia. Kassotis, John; Slesinger, Todd; Festic, Emir; Voigt, Louis; Reddy, C.V.R. // Angiology;May/Jun2003, Vol. 54 Issue 3, p369
Most wide-complex tachycardias encountered in the emergency department (ED) are ventricular in origin, most commonly associated with structural heart disease. Ventricular tachyarrhythmias range in severity from life-threatening rhythms (eg, ventricular fibrillation and hemodynamically...
- Adenosine. // Reactions Weekly;6/20/2009, Issue 1257, p6
The article describes the case of a 44-year-old woman who developed sustained monomorphic ventricular tachycardia after receiving adenosine for palpitations. The patient received an intravascular (IV) bolus dose of adenosine due to sudden onset palpitations, which caused polymorphic ventricular...
- Adenosine vs. Calcium Channel Blockers for Supraventricular Tachycardia. Anugwom, Chinasa; Sulangi, Sheryl; Dachs, Robert // American Family Physician;6/1/2007, Vol. 75 Issue 11, p1653
The article discusses the safety and efficacy of adenosine and calcium channel blocker as treatment for supraventricular tachycardia. It compares the adverse effects of adenosine and verapamil on patients who received those drugs. It recommends nondihydropyridine calcium channel blockers as...
- A Wide Tachycardia of Uncertain Cause. Grauer, Ken // Internal Medicine Alert;11/15/2011 Supplement, p168
The article discusses wide complex tachycardia (WCT) of uncertain etiology citing an electrocardiography (ECG) tracing indicating the condition. It notes that the tracing suggests fast and fairly regular rhythm with wide QRS and no definite P waves. It also refers ventricular tachycardia as the...
- Adenosine. // Reactions Weekly;12/9/2006, Issue 1131, p6
The article presents the case of an older woman who developed ventricular tachycardia after receiving IV adenosine for diagnostic and potentially therapeutic purposes. The patient had coronary artery disease. Adenosine-induced atrioventricular block demonstrated the underlying rhythm to be...
- Adenosine. // Reactions Weekly;Feb2015, Vol. 1540 Issue 1, p20
The article presents a case study of a 36-year-old man who was diagnosed with atrioventricular nodal re-entry tachycardia after receiving adenosine for recurrent palpitations.
