The electrocardiogram (ECG) continues to be a necessary software within the analysis of heart problems. ECG analysis in medical perform emphasizes the significance of the method in medical perform instead of as an summary research of strains on a strip of paper. It incorporates a huge variety of ECGs of better hassle point, and chapters in pediatric ECG and electrophysiology making sure a finished total realizing of the topic. ECG prognosis in scientific perform has been written for these taking Board examinations, however the simplicity of process and prime quality photos signify a important resource of reference fabric for the more matured cardiovascular physician.

2. ISCHAEMIC (CORONARY) HEART DISEASE 53 FIG. 82. Twenty-four hour Holter monitor showing acute ST segment depressions. The patient was unaware of her symptoms, she suffered from silent ischemia (KB; 18/12/98). FIG. 83. This young Japanese patient has a normal electrocardiogram (CH; 24/12/94). 54 ECG DIAGNOSIS IN CLINICAL PRACTICE FIG. 84. Five months later, she presented with acute inferior infarction (CH; 13/5/95). FIG. 85. Good resolution is evident 4 months later. Cardiac catheterization revealed spontaneous dissection of a coronary artery (see Fig.
85. Good resolution is evident 4 months later. Cardiac catheterization revealed spontaneous dissection of a coronary artery (see Fig. 86). (CH; 5/9/95).
Further signs of ischaemic changes in ECG • New, tall and peaked T waves may appear as a result of narrowing or obstruction of an epicardial artery; “hyperpolarization” occurs in the epicardial layer. • Depression of the ST segment with T wave inversion in the lateral leads can be caused by acute elevation of the left ventricular end diastolic pressure (related to subendocardial ischemia). • Distortion of the terminal QRS complex with reduced S waves can appear as a result of late depolarization of the Purkinje system.
