Great case and very informative. Looking back at your other cases of acute right heart strain, I can definitely see that this is different, but I am still having trouble saying this is RVH and not incomplete RBBB. Here it is much shorter I did not report that the computer, which measures this pretty accurately, gave it a QRS duration of ms. So it is not even an incomplete RBBB. Great case!

Right heart strain or more precisely right ventricular strain is a term given to denote the presence of right ventricular dysfunction usually in the absence of an underlying cardiomyopathy. It can manifest as an acute right heart syndrome. Right heart strain can often occur as a result of pulmonary arterial hypertension and its underlying causes such as massive pulmonary emboli.

Right heart strain also right ventricular strain or RV strain is a medical finding of right ventricular dysfunction [1] where the heart muscle of the right ventricle RV is deformed. When using an echocardiograph echo to visualize the heart, [a] strain can appear with the RV being enlarged and more round than typical. When normal, the RV is about half the size of the left ventricle LV. When strained, it can be as large as or larger than the LV. A finding of S1Q3T3 [b] is an insensitive [10] sign of right heart strain. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

ECG changes in Pulmonary Embolism

Aims To test the hypothesis that Qr in V 1 is a predictor of pulmonary embolism, right ventricular strain, and adverse clinical outcome. Echocardiography, troponin I, and pro-brain natriuretic peptide levels were obtained in 75 patients with pulmonary embolism. - Pulmonary embolism PE poses a challenge to physicians, as it can be difficult to diagnose but results in significant mortality and morbidity in patients. Diagnosing PE requires an integrated approach using clinical findings, electrocardiography ECG , blood investigations and imaging modalities.

Pulmonary Embolism: Don't Throw Out That EKG!

Expert Commentary By Schimmel D]. Pulmonary embolism PE is on the differential for a variety of common emergency department ED complaints and it can often be a tricky diagnosis to nail down. And as you are probably aware, the only factor even remotely related to the EKG that goes into either of those decision tools is the heart rate. Tachycardia gives a patient 1. So why even write about this topic?

Introduction with a case 0. A year old man presented to the hospital with chest pain and dyspnea. He was pale, diaphoretic, tachycardic, and borderline hypotensive with a systolic blood pressure ranging from mm. When he was taken off bedrest, he got up to use the commode and had a PEA arrest. Autopsy revealed pulmonary embolism. Patients presenting with chest pain, these EKG patterns, and troponin elevation are often misdiagnosed with MI.
