Differential Diagnosis of Wide Complex Tachycardias

  • Necessary for appropriate treatment

    • CCBs can be very bad in WPW

  • Based on correlation studies

  • Identify factors that favor one rhythm

  • Possibilities:

    • VT, SVT with aberrant conduction, Afib/Aflutter with aberrant conduction


Top 10 reasons for wct

1. Ventricular Tachycardia

2. Ventricular Tach

3. VT

4. VT

5. VT

6. VT

7. VT

8. VT

9. SVT with preexisting BBB

10. SVT with aberrant conduction

Factors favoring vt
Factors Favoring VT

  • Concordance across all V leads (+/-)

  • ERAD axis deviation

  • QRS > .14 sec

  • AV dissociation

  • Suggestive QRS morphology
