Simultaneous hypertrophy of the left and right ventricle is rather common. The ECG has low sensitivity with respect to detecting biventricular hypertrophy. This is because the strong and oppositely directed forces tend to cancel each other out. However, the ECG may show features characteristic of biventricular hypertrophy.
This e-book and course covers all topics from basic cardiac electrophysiology to advanced ECG interpretation. It is suitable for physicians, assistant physicians, nurses, paramedics, biomedical analysts, students and researchers. The content is in line with guidelines issued by the American Heart Association (AHA), American College of Cardiology (ACC) & the European Society for Cardiology (ESC).
