Presentation Transcript


Pulmonary disease

Pulmonary Disease

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    • COPD disease of the lungs with airway obstruction, chronic bronchitis and emphysema

    • Cigarette smoking results in PAC’s, WAP, A-flutter, A-Fib

    • P Pulmonale

  • Acute Pulmonary Embolism

    • Blood Clot or other foreign matter lodges in a PA causing obstruction of blood flow to lungs

    • Originate from deep leg veins/pelvic veins

  • Chronic Cor Pulmonale

    • Enlargement of RV with RHF end stage results of Pulmonary Hypertension


Early repolarization

Early Repolarization

  • A term used to describe a form of Myocardial repolarization in which the ST segment is elevated or depressed 1-3 mm above or below the base line.

  • Seen in Acute MI’s


Hypothermia

Hypothermia

  • Core body temperature of < 95 degrees

  • Distinctive narrow positive wave the Osborn wave/J wave/J deflection/camel’s hump

  • Occurs at the junction of the QRS complex and ST segment


Preexcitation syndromes

Preexcitation Syndromes

  • Accessory AV pathways (bundle of Kent)

    • Wolff-Parkinson White conduction

    • AV pathway between the Atrial and Ventricle bypasses the AV junction

    • Delta Wave

  • Atrio-His fibers (James fibers)

    • Atria with the lowermost part of the AV node bypassing the slower conducting AV node.

    • Atrio-His preexcitation

  • Nodoventricular fibers (Mahaim fibers)

    • Lower part of the AV node to the ventricles

    • Ventricular preexcitation
