WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS EKG SERIES - TORSADES DE POINTES


Hi guys,


Hope you had a good week. I have tried to simplify TORSADES DE POINTES , which is a form of Ventricular Tachycardia. It is commonly found in patients who are chronic alcoholics and who are poorly nourished. Lack of Magnesium ( read also Preeclampsia, chapter 3)is usually the cause in chronic alcoholism.
Treatment is directed at correcting the cause.
For more information on Torsades de Pointes visit:
for Torsades go to page 33

You may also enjoy watching the Clinical Videos called SESSIONS, in particular
watch Sessions 16 through 18.
