5. Electrocardiographic Effects of Propofol versus Etomidate in Patients with Brugada Syndrome (Abstract)

Electrocardiographic Effects of Propofol versus Etomidate in Patients with Brugada Syndrome Brugada Syndrome is an inherited arrhythmogenic disease, characterized by the typical coved type ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads from V1 through V3. The BrugadaDrugs.org Advisory Board recommends avoiding administration of propofol in patients with Brugada Syndrome. Since prospective studies are lacking, it was the purpose of this study to assess the electrocardiographic effects (...) with etomidate. This trial failed to establish any evidence to suggest that changes in either group differed, with most percentiles being zero (median [25th, 75th], 0 [0, 0] vs. 0 [0, 0]). Finally, no new arrhythmias occurred perioperatively in both groups.In this trial, there does not appear to be a significant difference in electrocardiographic changes in patients with Brugada syndrome when propofol versus etomidate were administered for induction of anesthesia. This study did not investigate

6. Predicting sudden cardiac death in a general population using an electrocardiographic risk score Full Text available with Trip Pro

Predicting sudden cardiac death in a general population using an electrocardiographic risk score We investigated whether combining several ECG abnormalities would identify general population subjects with a high sudden cardiac death (SCD) risk.In a sample of 6830 participants (mean age 51.2±13.9 years; 45.5% male) in the Mini-Finland Health Survey, a general population cohort representative of the Finnish adults aged ≥30 years conducted in 1978-1980, we examined their ECGs, following subjects (...) for 24.3±10.4 years. We analysed the association between individual ECG abnormalities and 10-year SCD risk and developed a risk score using five ECG abnormalities independently associated with SCD risk: heart rate >80 beats per minute, PR duration >220 ms, QRS duration >110 ms, left ventricular hypertrophy and T-wave inversion. We validated the score using an external general population cohort of 10 617 subjects (mean age 44.0±8.5 years; 52.7% male).No ECG abnormalities were present in 4563 subjects

Although the ECG remains a simple, ubiquitous, and inexpensive way to diagnose LVH, the clinical utility of ECG is limited by the impact of lead placement, body (...) habitus, age, lung pathology, conduction abnormalities, or myocardium pathology on voltage. Additionally, with the AHA endorsing more than 30 ECG criteria for diagnosing LVH, there is no consensus among practitioners on which criteria are most appropriate for clinical use.
