A. the rhythm is sinus

Well done

Take-home message : The presence of a moderate sinus bradycardia is not pathological per se. The implantation of a pacemaker in this setting is justified only in the presence of symptoms.

#ECG QUIZ n°85 ANSWERS :

A. sinus rhythm
E. inferior territory ST elevation

Did you find out ? Well done

Take-home message : Depending on the location of the infarction, the anatomical and evolving morphological characteristics of the AV block are opposite. The prognosis is often highly altered in the setting of a post-infarction anterior AV block, with very high mortality. Conversely, the conduction disorder is most often spontaneously resolved within a few days in the setting of an inferior infarction. The indications for definitive pacemaker implantation are therefore very rare.
