FURTHER VOLTAGE AUGMENTATION BY EMPLOYING THE GEOMETRIC MID-POINT TECHNIQUE AND A NEW FRONTAL-PLANE ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHS LEAD PLACEMENT
- THE USE OF ADDITIONAL LEADS IN THE EARLY DIAGNOSIS OF POSTERIOR MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION. Bernreiter, Michael // Angiology;Aug1965, Vol. 16 Issue 8, p452
Three cases are reported here in which the clinical picture was quite suggestive of acute myocardial infarction but a typical pattern did not appear in the routine electrocardiogram. Additional leads over the posterior chest were quite helpful in the early diagnosis of acute posterior myocardial...
- Signal-averaged ECG: Why? Who? When? Porterfield, James G.; Porterfield, Linda M.; Pinkowish, Mary Desmond // Patient Care;1/30/1993, Vol. 27 Issue 2, p73
Focuses on the use of signal-averaged electrocardiography in predicting arrhythmia after myocardial infarction. Means to increase the size of late potentials, high-pass filters remove the high-frequency noise; Indication of areas of slow ventricular conduction; Prevalence of late potentials...
- New heart attack guidelines target lower risk patients. // ED Nursing;May2008, Vol. 11 Issue 7, p82
Emergency nurses should ensure that all patients with possible ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) get electrocardiograms within 10 minutes of their presentation to the triage area, according to updated guidelines. To improve care of STEMI patients: â€¢ Remember that diabetics and...
- Acute coronary syndrome in aortic infective endocarditis. Attias, David; Messika-Zeitoun, David; Wolf, Michel; Lepage, Laurent; Vahanian, Alec // European Journal of Echocardiography;Nov2008, Vol. 9 Issue 6, p727
A 34-year-old man was presented with aortic infective endocarditis and acute coronary syndrome due to an extrinsic coronary compression due to periannular complications.
- BUNDLE BRANCH BLOCKS: When to sound the alarm. Hammond, Cecile // RN;Jan81, Vol. 44 Issue 1, p54
Focuses on bundle branch block configurations on a patient's electrocardiogram monitor. Chronic diseases that result in bundle branch blocks; Percentage of acute myocardial infarction patients who develop a bundle branch block; Tips for diagnosing problems in the bundle branches.
- Is this post -MI dysrhythmia dangerous? Hammond, Cecile // RN;Apr82, Vol. 45 Issue 4, p58
Analyzes the strip of an acute anteroseptal infarction and a normal sinus rhythm shown by an electrocardiography of a patient delivered to the emergency room by ambulance. Overall rate in the strip; How to determine the sinus strip; Cause of the rhythm.
- How far should patients with suspected myocardial infarction be under observation in hospital? Poukkula, Anneli; Huhti, Esko // British Medical Journal;11/1/1980, Vol. 281 Issue 6249, p1170
Focuses on the clinical treatment for patients with suspected myocardial infarction. Use of electrocardiogram in deciding patient discharge from hospitals; Determination of the MB fraction of creatine phosphokinase; Admittance of patients with non-fatal acute myocardial.
- ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHIC CHANGES NOT RELATED TO CORONARY THROMBUS FORMATION IN NON-ST ELEVATED ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME. BEKLER, Adem; ALTUN, Burak; BARUTÇU, Ahmet; TEMİZ, Ahmet; GAZİ, Emine; ERBAĞ, Gökhan; GÜNEŞ, Fahri // Anatolian Journal of Clinical Investigation;2014, Vol. 8 Issue 1, p1
The clinical significance of T wave invertion (TWI) and ST depression (STD) in patients with non ST elevated acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) has been previously evaluated. Our aim was to evaluate the association of electrocardiographic (ECG) changes with coronary thrombus (CT) formation in...
- Value of the frontal planar QRS-T angle on cardiac dysfunction in patients with old myocardial infarction. Yan-Hong Li; Xue-Jun Ren; Zhi-Hong Han; Yun-Long Wang; Ye Wang; Jin-Rong Zhang; Fang Chen // International Journal of Clinical & Experimental Medicine;
Objectives: To explore a method of surface electrocardiogram for assessing cardiac dysfunction in patients with old myocardial infarction. Methods: 1000 patients with old myocardial infarction in Anzhen hospital were analyzed retrospectively. The planar QRS-T angle was calculated automatically...
