Note the prominent broad R wave in leads V1 and V2. If the axis is inferiorly directed, lead V6 often shows an R: Left panel VT; right panel same patient during sinus rhythm.

It is of interest that a QRS width of more than 0. When in doubt, do not give verapamil or adenosine; procainamide should be used instead. Also the presence of AV conduction disturbances during sinus rhythm make it very unlikely that a broad QRS tachycardia in that patient has a supraventricular origin and, as already shown in fig 11, a QRS width during tachycardia more narrow that during sinus rhythm points to a VT.

Duration of the tachycardia — SVT is more likely if the tachycardia has recurred over a period of more than three years [6].

Symptoms — Symptoms are not useful in determining the diagnosis, but they are important as an indicator of the severity of hemodynamic compromise.

Of course other factors also play a role in the QRS width during VT, such as scar tissue after myocardial infarctionventricular hypertrophy, and muscular disarray as in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.


Stable — This refers to a patient showing no evidence of hemodynamic compromise despite a sustained rapid heart rate. Diagnostic coved ST-segment elevation in both leads following the administration of 1 g procainamide.

As described in the text, lead V1 during LBBB clearly shows signs pointing to a supraventricular origin of the tachycardia. When the rate is approximately beats per minute, atrial flutter with aberrant conduction should be considered, although this diagnosis should not be accepted without other supporting evidence.

It arises on or near to the septum near the supraventriculag posterior fascicle. ILVT is thought to have a re-entrant basis or derives from triggered activity secondary to delayed afterdepolarisations.

In panel B the frontal QRS axis is further leftward a so called north-west axis. We recently reported an ECG algorithm for differential diagnosis of regular wide QRS complex tachycardias that was superior to the Brugada algorithm. SVT is more likely in younger patients positive predictive value 70 percent.

When the arrhythmia arises in the lateral free wall of the ventricle sequential activation of the ventricles occurs resulting in a very wide QRS. Desencadenadas con esfuerzo Bien toleradas. Many of these tachycardias are benign, and occur in the absence of structural heart disease. Regularity — VT is generally regular, although slight variation in the RR intervals is sometimes seen.

To make this website work, we log user data and share it with processors. In this study, wide QRS complex tachycardias [ ventricular tachycardias VTssupraventricular tachycardias SVTs20 preexcited tachycardias] from patients faquicardia proven diagnoses were prospectively analyzed by two of the authors blinded to the diagnosis.

This is a tachycardia not arising on the endocardial surface of the right ventricular outflow tract but epicardially in between the root of the aorta and the posterior part of the outflow tract of the right ventricle.


On the right a VT arising on the right side of the interventricular septum results in more simultaneous activation of the right and left ventricle than during sinus rhythm and therefore a smaller QRS complex. In this paper, Vereckei et al. The origin of the QRS rhythm may be in the AV junction, with associated intraventricular aberration, or in fascicular or ventricular tissue. Give me the paddles! Negative concordancy is diagnostic for a VT arising in the apical area of the heart fig The QRS complex will be smaller when the VT has its origin in or close to the interventricular septum.

Three types of idiopathic VT arising supraventricluar or close to the outflow tract of the right ventricle see text. Atrioventricular dissociation may be diagnosed by a changeable pulse pressure, irregular canon A waves in the jugular veins and a variable first heart sound. Misdiagnosis of VT as SVT based upon hemodynamic stability is a common error that can lead to inappropriate and potentially dangerous therapy.

Age — A WCT in a patient over the age of 35 years is likely to be VT positive predictive value 85 percent in one series [11]. An tqauicardia rate that is faster than the ventricular rate is seen with some SVTs, such as atrial flutter or an atrial tachycardia with 2:
