Arrhythmia occurred with the junctional escape rhythm and the onset of cyanosis followed.
These include angioedema, dyspnea, wheezing, bronchospasm, hypoxia, cough, sweating, flushing, anxiety, itching, erythema, generalized urticaria, decreased blood pressure, tachycardia, intermittent junctional escape rhythms, ventricular tachycardia, asystole, and even death (Anders & Trautmann, 2013; Santosa, Tan, & Cheng, 2013).
Therefore heart block in inferior MI is associated with bradycardia and junctional escape rhythm having heart rates above 40 beats per minute.
DIAGNOSIS: Sinus rhythm; high-grade second degree atrioventricular block with a junctional escape rhythm and three capture complexes, each with right bundle branch block aberration; possible septal myocardial infarct of indeterminate age; ST-T and U wave changes suggesting hypokalemia.
1A) revealed an acute inferior + right ventricular wall myocardial infarction with complete heart block and junctional escape rate of 40 beats per minute.
DIAGNOSIS: Sinus rhythm; high-grade second-degree atrioventricular block with a junctional escape rhythm and three capture complexes, each with right bundle branch block aberration; possible septal myocardial infarct of indeterminate age; ST-T and U wave changes suggesting hypokalemia.
A Holter monitor revealed sinus arrest, atrioventricular junctional escape, and paroxysmal AF with a 4.
DIAGNOSIS: Sinus bradycardia with an atrial escape complex, followed by a junctional escape rhythm with isorhythmic atrioventricular dissociation; voltage criteria for left ventricular hypertrophy.
Thus, there is sinus bradycardia with a junctional escape rhythm and isorhythmic atrioventricular dissociation.
DIAGNOSIS: Sinus bradycardia and arrhythmia, high-grade second degree atrioventricular (AV) block with only one conducted P wave, a slow junctional escape rate, left atrial enlargement, and nonspecific T-wave changes.
