Prognostic benefits of His?Purkinje capture in physiological pacemakers for bradycardia

Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology

Methods Consecutive patients with bradycardia indicated for pacing from 2016 to 2022 were prospectively followed for the clinical endpoints of heart failure (HF)-hospitalizations and all-cause mortality at 2 years. CSP should be preferred over VSP or RVP during pacing for bradycardia.

Ep 154: 4-Step Approach to Bradycardia and Bradydysrhythmias

ECG Cases

How do we figure out when bradycardia is due to a medical illness and when it is a primary cardiac problem? The post Ep 154: 4-Step Approach to Bradycardia and Bradydysrhythmias appeared first on Emergency Medicine Cases. What are some key ECG patterns that are sometimes missed by ED docs that can have devastating consequences?

How to perform cardioneuroablation for vasovagal syncope and functional bradycardia

HeartRhythm

As the most common cause of syncope, vasovagal syncope (VVS) is the result of cerebral hypoperfusion caused by sudden-onset bradycardia and mediated by parasympathetic overdrive.1 1 VVS is generally categorized into three types: cardioinhibitory, vasodepressive and mixed type.

Ep 155 Treatment of Bradycardia and Bradydysrhythmias

ECG Cases

In Part 1 of our 2-part series on bradycardia and bradydysrhythmias we discussed a practical approach with electrophysiologist Paul Dorian and EM doc Tarlan Hedayati. How is the treatment of bradycardia different in the patient with hypothermia? In this, part 2, we discuss details of treatment. Cardiac ischemia? Myxedema coma?
