Furthermore, recent studies showed that fMCG can be effectively used in the prenatal diagnosis of atrial bigeminy (conducted and blocked), 2:1 AVB, CAVB, delayed AV conduction, PQ segment prolongation, and different types of long QT syndrome.

INTRODUCTION: Ventricular Bigeminy is a type of ventricular premature complex (VPC) where every normal sinus beat is followed by a ventricular ectopic.
As the condition worsens, the PVCs begin to show patterns like bigeminy, pairs or couplets, or multiformed shapes.
Nonconducted atrial bigeminy refers to the presence of electrical signals originating from atrial foci outside the sinus node which are not transmitted to the ventricle.

DIAGNOSIS: Sinus rhythm with monomorphic ventricular bigeminy and ventriculophasic sinus arrhythmia.
All cases demonstrated frequent runs of bigeminy, trigeminy and/or multiple episodes of uni-/multi-focal PVC and were determined by the attending anesthesiologist to require conversion to ECG-gated shock delivery for patient safety.
