Using electrochemical options by means of chemists, quite those that regard themselves as "inorganic" coordination chemists, has gone through a really fast progress within the final 15-20 years. The strategies, as dassically utilized to inorganic species, had their origins in analytical chemistry, and the technique had assumed, till the mid 60s, extra significance than the chemiStry.

Example text

A permanent artificial pacemaker is indicated for every patient with a Mobitz type II A-V block. Case 21 / Diagnosis CASE 21 An anxious, 61-year-old woman without demonstrable heart disease was examined because she complained of frequent episodes of palpitations. She stated that the episodic palpitations always seemed to be triggered by anxiety. , excessive use of coffee or tea), and was not taking any drugs. Her physical findings were entirely unremarkable other than her "usual" anxiety. 1. What is the cardiac rhythm diagnosis?

B c D E Holter Monitor ECG: Strips A through E are not continuous. The P waves are not clearly visible, but the mechanism is most likely sinus from the finding shown on the 3-lead rhythm strips. The Holter monitor ECG shows sinus rhythm (rate: 70 beats per minute) with atrial parasystole (many parasystolic P waves are blocked), and frequent multifocal VPCs with ventricular group beats. Although atrial parasystole is considered benign and self-limiting, multifocal VPCs with group beats should be treated (see Table 8).

The significant EeG abnormality on this tracing is the presence of tall T waves in leads V H, with inverted T waves in many leads indicating diffuse myocardial ischemia. It should be noted that the tall T waves in leads V H represent posterior myocardial ischemia. These EeG findings, however, are not sufficient to explain his dizziness. Therefore, a Holter monitor EeG was obtained. Holter Monitor ECG: Strips A through D are not continuous. The basic cardiac rhythm is marked sinus bradycardia, but there are frequent multifocal ventricular ectopic beats (X; arrows) causing an intermittent ventricular c D tachycardia (VT) (arrows) at a rate of 120 beats per minute.
