Magnetophysiologic and echocardiographic comparison of blocked atrial bigeminy and 2:1 atrioventricular block in the fetus.
During the ventricular bigeminy the heart rate almost doubled to around 90-100/min.
An exercise stress test revealed premature atrial contractions (PACs) in patterns of bigeminy and quadrigeminy,13 PACs per minute, an ectopic atrial pacemaker, and inappropriate blood pressure response to exercise.
She continued to have bigeminy and nonsustained VT, so the amiodorone drip was gradually increased over the next 2 days from 7 to 14 mcg/kg/hr, with a 5 mg/kg bolus prior to each increase.
He continued to have runs of bigeminy, but no more VT was noted during his hospital stay.
In several case reports, ECG changes during the vasovagal reflex among patients with needle phobia have included sinus arrhythmia, premature atrial contractions, premature junctional contractions, unifocal and multifocal premature ventricular contractions, bigeminy, first- and second-degree block, changes in P waves, ST waves, and T waves, sinus bradycardia, sinus tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, and asystole.
Previous reports have shown that catheter ablation could be an alternative for the treatment of atrial bigeminy or AT in drug-resistant symptomatic patients.
The pattern of atrial bigeminy seen in the Figure also could be produced by an automatic focus in the A-V junction or low in the atria.
The ECG continued to show runs of VT, pulseless electrical activity and bigeminy.
4%) with problematic heart rate measurements, including atrial fibrillation, atrial bigeminy or trigeminy, pacemakers, irregular rhythm, irregular sinus rhythm, frequent ventricular ectopic activity, ventricular bigeminy, multi-focal atrial tachycardia, or measurement time < 3.
Once the dopamine drip was initiated, her VT episodes appeared more frequent and she had more bigeminy and trigeminy.
Possible side effects such as frequent premature ventricular contractions or bigeminy can occur when digoxin and calcium channel (CC) blockers are used in combination (Gaine & Rubin, 1998; McLaughlin & Rich, 1997).
Multiple runs of ventricular tachycardia were detected, which then converted to a bigeminy rhythm.
