Idiot’s approach to cardiac arrhythmias : A new Algorithm based on heart rate & QRS width !
Posted Dec 30 2012 9:11am
Heart rate of a tachycardia is the simplest of all . . . but neglected parameter by physicians. They are often seen spending hours together for decoding arrhythmia , splitting their brain for locating P waves , VA conduction, Fusion beats etc .Finally most end up either administering Amiodarone a broad spectrum anti arrhythmic agent or a DC shock without arriving at a correct diagnosis.
Here is an unusual algorithm for arriving at a diagnosis in all tachy-arrhythmais based only on heart rate and the width of the qrs complex with acceptable accuracy.
