|This page is part of Cases and Examples|
Look at the consecutive ECGs in this patient. What electrolyte disturbance do you expect?
The first ECG shows a rhythm around 60 bpm with severe QRS prolongation and prominent T waves. This might be sinusrhythm with very small P waves or atrial fibrillation with a relatively regular rate.
These changes are typical of severe hyperkalemia.
