The pattern of arrhythmias during first 48 hours of acute myocardial infarction
Dr. Muthuraju N, Dr. Chandrashekhar HM
There is a view that the cascade leading to sudden death from arrhythmias can be predicted by certain interactions among structural and functional abnormalities. The search for new tools for prediction, the refinement of the existing tools, and the initiation of well designed intervention trials are the steps that must be taken towards the more efficient prevention of premature deaths from arrhythmias. The data was obtained from total of 100 patients admitted to the ICCU, Hospital and Research Centre. Anterior wall infarctions (66%) were more common than inferior wall infarction (30%).There were 11 cases of right ventricular infarction – 10 were associated with inferior wall MI and 1 case occurred in anterior wall MI. There were 5 cases of posterior wall MI.
