His ECG is shown below. What is the diagnosis?
There is also a prolonged QTc of about 500.
There is also a:
- First degree block
I would call this a Trifascicular Block.
Cardiology argued that it was not. Read on to see why they were wrong.
What are the 3 Fascicles?
As the HIS Purkinje system enters the ventricular part of the heart it is composed of the:
- Right Bundle: which forms one fascicle
- Left Bundle, which is split into:
- Anterior and
- Posterior fascicles
…Thus 3 fascicles.
