ECG Strip 17


ECG Strip 17 - Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome

This is an ECG made as part of a routine pre-operative examination in a 58 years old patient. There is a normal sinus rhythm; PQ interval length is slightly shorter, but still normal. There are visible suspected delta waves in QR complexes. When questioned, the patient confirms recurring palpitations. This finding is highly suspicious of randomly diagnosed WPW syndrome and the patient was send to a cardiologic doctor's office for further examination.
