Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Differential diagnosis of one or more wide QRS complexes on an electrocardiogram under emergency conditions takes into account three main sets of clinical conditions: ventricular pre-excitation, aberrant conduction and ventricular beats and it is based on the morphological analysis of the ECG and patient's anamnestic data. Several criteria can facilitate the differential diagnosis and if properly used and integrated with clinic data they can achieve good diagnostic accuracy in most cases. In this review several criteria based on evidence and literature are presented, paying attention in recognizing some morphologic pathways that can be used in emergency room and allow a correct ECG assessment.
