ECG #1

Ok so here is the first ECG chart

Try to figure out what it is before peeking down for the answer!

Hint: Always first figure out the rate & rythym

Bingo! - The rate is SLOW = Bradycardia

Now lets look at the solved ECG 

 

This is a simple method to calculate the rate. Every big box (5 small boxes) right next to the QRS peak is numbered accordingly - 300, 150, 100, 75, 60, 50 and so on. Till the next QRS peak. Here the next QRS lies way after 50 ... definitely Severe bradycardia. If the next peak was at say 75 - the rate would have been 75 beats per min.

MANAGEMENT OF BRADYCARDIA

  1. The first step was technically what we did, ECG.
  2. If the person is stable, figure out cause of bradycardia
  3. If patient is unstable - Atropine is the best initial test
  4. The most effective treatment is - Pacemaker
