The electrocardiographic interpretation of pacemaker algorithms enabling...

Cardiac pacing from the apex of the right ventricle has been shown to result in left ventricular dysfunction, atrial fibrillation and increased mortality. To counter this, one of the strategies developed, is to avoid ventricular pacing when not necessary, using programmable algorithms to minimize ventricular...

Underutilization of Ambulatory ECG Monitoring After Stroke...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the leading cardiac cause of stroke. and its identification after a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) is important for guiding secondary prevention management. However, paroxysmal AF frequently goes undetected and untreated if sufficient ECG monitoring is not performed. This study...

The Electrocardiographic Footprints of Atrial Ectopy

The term ectopic means ‘‘out of place” or ‘‘abnormal position” and, in relation to the heart, refers to an early heartbeat, whose origin is from a focus other than the sinus node. They increase in frequency with age and are generally innocent, unless there is...

The Electrocardiographic Footprints of Ventricular Ectopy

The term ectopic means “out of place” or “abnormal position” and, in relation to the heart, refers to an early or premature heartbeat, whose origin is from a focus other than the sinus node. Ventricular ectopics originate from an irritable focus within the ventricles and...

One vs three channels – Ambulatory ECG...

As the technology surrounding Holter monitors continues to evolve, more options becomes available – including Holters with multi-channels, versus one channel patch Holter monitors. Our Medical Director, Dr Harry Mond, looks at the differences between one channel and multi-channel Holter monitors, and which is better...

Arrhythmic indications for ambulatory ECG monitoring

A cardiac arrhythmia is a rhythm disturbance of the heart which may require investigation using ambulatory electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring. This may be a 24 hour or greater (Holter) or medium term (events and telemetry) recording which can be up to 30 days. Longer term recording...

Non-arrhythmic indications for ambulatory Holter ECG monitoring

There are a number of computerized packages that can measure Holter ECG recordings over a 24 or shorter period. They require high quality tracings and despite being available in a Holter monitor report, none have been found to be useful in routine medical management. Access...

The spectrum of Ambulatory ECG monitoring

The resting 12-lead electrocardiogram is a surface record of the electrical activity of the heart plotted against time with the actual standardised recording of the non-invasive test being an electrocardiograph (ECG). The test has served as the gold standard for arrhythmia recognition. The resting 12-lead...

The Footprints of Electrocardiographic Interference: Fact or...

Corporeal and particularly extra-corporeal interference is a very common problem encountered with both resting electrocardiograph (ECG) tracings and ambulatory recordings. When subtle, the artefact can mimic cardiac arrhythmias, leading to incorrect interpretation of the tracings. There is also a complicated interference group, usually due to...

2017 ISHNE-HRS expert consensus statement on ambulatory...

Ambulatory ECG (AECG) telemetry is typically used to evaluate symptoms such as syncope, dizziness, chest pain, palpitations, or shortness of breath, which may correlate with intermittent cardiac arrhythmias. Additionally, AECG is used to evaluate patient response to initiation, revision, or discontinuation of arrhythmic drug therapy...
