In complete heart block the atrial impulses are not activating the ventricles, forcing the QRS complexes to originate from a lower “secondary” pacemaker such as the AVN-His bundle junction. A ventricular rate that is regular and greater than the atrial rate is referred to as A-V dissociation. A-V dissociation is a hallmark finding in ventricular tachycardia where the ventricular complexes originate from an abnormal area of the ventricle that depolarizes independently. QRS Axis The QRS axis is a vector that represents the net direction of ventricular depolarization.
Soft midsystolic murmurs are often called “innocent” (innocuous) murmurs and are usually due to increased flow across a normal pulmonic valve. The murmur of aortic stenosis is harsh, and with severe stenosis, the murmur can obscure the second heart sound and radiate to the carotid arteries. The murmur of HCM with LVOT obstruction can be similar to that of aortic stenosis, but the diagnosis can nonetheless be made reliably by physical examination. HCM causes dynamic obstruction, so maneuvers that reduce left ventricular preload and/or afterload (Valsalva, use of amylnitrite) will increase murmur intensity, whereas maneuvers that increase ventricular preload and/or afterload (handgrip, squatting) soften the murmur.
This part of Section I focuses on the types of physicians who specifically train to care for patients with cardiovascular disease and highlights some of the more common procedures these individuals perform to facilitate that care. Three major topics are discussed here: A. CARDIOVASCULAR PROVIDERS Medically Trained Providers In the United States all postgraduate medical training programs are required to maintain accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The ACGME routinely audits individual training programs for their clinical, educational, and procedural quality and to ensure compliance with various safety standards.
