e·lec·tro·car·di·o·gram

(ĭ-lĕk′trō-kär′dē-ə-grăm′)
A recording of the electrical activity of the heart. The electrocardiogram is used by doctors to analyze how well the heart is working and to diagnose abnormal heart rhythms. ♦ The machine used to record an electrocardiogram is called an electrocardiograph.

The pattern of wave forms of the QRS complexes were different (Rs, QS, rS, R, RS, QR, qR).
A meta-analysis including 109,798 patients revealed patients who are taking PPIs are at higher risk of hypomagnesemia, which has been associated with various cardiovascular arrhythmias including widening QRS complexes, frequent atrial and ventricular premature systoles and sustained atrial fibrillation.3 A study done on patients with focal atrial tachycardia (AT) and right ventricular outflow tract ventricular tachycardia (RVOT VT) revealed increased odds of focal arrhythmias and RVOT VT associated with use of PPIs.4
Such placement would have accounted for the negative P waves and QRS complexes in leads I and aVL and the fact that lead III had the appearance of lead II in an ECG with properly placed leads (Figure 2).
During ECG, low voltage QRS complexes in all leads with P pulmonale were observed (Fig.
Clear presence of normal sinus rhythm, with narrow QRS complexes in both monitor strips (marked by red arrows in Figure 1).
ECG showed ventricular tachycardia which was reverted to sinus rhythm with IV lignocaine 50mg after which ECG showed heart rate of 110/min, sickle shaped ST depression in anterior precordial leads and broad QRS complexes. Echocardiography was normal.
Beat-to-beat detection and classification of the QRS complexes allow the heart rhythm evolution to be followed and arrhythmias such as premature ventricular contractions (PVC) to be detected.
Prominent positive atrial repolarization waves ([T.sub.a]) are seen after the QRS complexes in leads II, III, and aVF giving rise to ST segment elevation, mimicking ST elevation myocardial infarction.
where TP, FP, and FN are the number of true positive (correct detection of fetal ECG QRS complexes), false positive (falsely detected absence of R-peak), and false-negative (false fetal ECG QRS complex detection), respectively.
Record 203 has a great number of QRS complexes with multiform ventricular arrhythmia.
Several approaches have been proposed to correct the QT interval in persons with wide QRS complexes as exemplified by ventricular pacing.
Others (Freudenberger, Sikora, Fisher, Wilson, & Gold, 2004; Shamim et al., 1999; Silverman, 1995), demonstrated that patients with QRS prolongation have higher all-cause mortality and possibly a higher incidence of sudden death (or cardiac death) than those with narrow QRS complexes. On the other hand, PR interval duration did not differ between high and moderate exercise(HVE = 116.6 [+ or -] 24.5 ms vs.
