  1. 1. On Bundle Branch Block and Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Author : Gunnar Thor Gunnarsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acute myocardial infarction; left bundle branch block; right bundle branch block; diagnosis; prognosis; continuous vectorcardiography;

    Abstract : Studies from the pre-thrombolytic era showed that patients with bundle branch block suffering acute myocardial infarction had worse prognosis compared to patients without bundle branch block. It seems that this difference still exists in the thrombolytic era, at least for short-term mortality. READ MORE

  2. 2. Multi-lead ST-monitoring in the early assessment of patients with suspected or confirmed unstable coronary artery disease

    Author : Tomas Jernberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; ST-monitoring; electrocardiography; vectorcardiography; myocardial infarction; unstable angina; prognosis; low-molecular-weight heparin; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : This study evaluated the use of multi-lead ST-monitoring in the early assessment of patients with suspected or confirmed unstable coronary artery disease (UCAD).At continuous 12-lead ECG (c12ECG), the definition of an ischemic episode as a transient ST-deviation ¡Ý0 for at least 1 minute resulted in a good observer agreement (kappa=0.

  3. 3. On-line vectorcardiography in ischemic heart disease

    Author : Peter Lundin; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Vectorcardiography; ischemia monitoring; coronary artery disease; exercise test; echocardiography; dobutamine; unstable angina pectoris; myocardial infarction; prognosis.;

    Abstract : ON-LINE VECTORCARDIOGRAPHY IN ISCHEMIC HEART DISEASEPeter Lundin, KAROLINSKA INSTITUTET, DANDERYD HOSPITAL, Division of IntemalMedicine, S-182 88, Danderyd, Sweden The clinical usefulness of continuous on-line vectorcardiography (VCG) was assessed in 435patients, admitted to the coronary care unit. The ability of 24-hour VCG monitoring todifferentiate patients with or without ischemic heart disease (IHD), to provide long-temmprognostic information and to predict results from a predischarge exercise test in patients withunstable angina pectoris or acute myocardial infarction (MI) was evaluated.

  4. 4. Computerized vectorcardiography for on-line cardiac monitoring in non-cardiac surgery

    Author : Per Gannedahl; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Anesthesia electrocardiography intraoperative monitonng laparoscopy myocardial ischemia vascularsurgery vectorcardiography. Stockholm 1997;

    Abstract : Computerized Vectorcardiography for On-line Cardiac Monitoring in Non Cardiac Surgery Per Gannedahl Department of Surgical Sciences, Karolinska Institute and Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden. Perioperative cardiac morbidity (PCM) remains high in risk groups such as peripheral vascular surgery. READ MORE

  5. 5. On-line vectorcardiography during coronary angioplasty and unstable coronary artery disease

    Author : Jens Jensen; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; vectorcardiography; myocardial ischemia; coronary artery disease; percutaneous coronary angioplasty; prognosis; gender; tissue Doppler echocardiography;

    Abstract : This thesis evaluates the usefulness of continuous vectorcardiography (VCG) in patients undergoing elective coronary angioplasty and in patients with unstable coronary artery disease (CAD), for detection and quantitation of myocardial ischemia and for identification of patients at risk of coronary events. The aims were to investigate, whether continuous on-line VCG: 1. READ MORE
