Sample text

A PFO is an open conduit between the superior portion of the septum secundum on the RA side and the septum primum on the LA side. Postnatally, the foramen is normally held shut by overlapping of the two septa and the higher pressure in the LA. However, high RA pressures can cause the two septa to separate, allowing paradoxical embolization from right to left to occur. Pathophysiology In the setting of a large ASD, a chronic left-to-right shunt imposes a volume overload on the RV and RA, resulting in right-sided chamber hypertrophy and dilatation.

As a result of the chaotic depolarizations, no coordinated contractile function can occur, and cardiac output suddenly declines. VF presents with sudden loss of consciousness with subsequent sudden cardiac death if electrical defibrillation is not emergently performed. Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is a pre-excitation syndrome in which ventricular depolarization occurs by an anomalous conduction pathway before the ventricle is depolarized by the normal AV conduction pathway (Fig.

PVCs are the result of ectopic ventricular foci generating an action potential independent of the SA and AV nodal conduction system. PVCs appear as wide QRS depolarizations because the electrical activity travels slowly through myocardium rather than through the normal conduction system. In people with no significant structural heart disease, PVCs do not progress to VT or VF. • Figure 1-23. Ventricular tachycardia: a wide-complex tachycardia defined as three or more premature ventricular contractions in a row.
