Here is a challenging case this morning to stretch your mind…
You are called to a 71 year old male feeling "sick". He has not felt well for the past 24 hours. He describes feelings of "general aches and pains".
He has history of heart failure, for which he has an AICD.
His vitals are stable, and he does not appear to be in much distress.
Here are two continuous rhythm strips:
A short time later, his rhythm strip looks like this:
While in this rhythm, he reports that he feels "the same".
What is the rhythm in ECG #1?
What is going on in ECG #2?
What changed in ECG #3? And Why?
Looking forward to a good discussion!
