PV Card: Brugada Criteria for SVT with Aberrancy vs Ventricular Tachycardia

2011_04_22Awm

Due to the overwhelming popularity of Dr. Salim Rezaie‘s recent post discussing the Brugada criteria for  SVT with aberrancy vs VT, Dr. Jason West (@JWestEM, an EM resident from Jacobi/Montefiore) kindly helped to co-author and package this information into a PV card for quick reference. To use this sequential, four-question approach, if at any time you answer YES to the question, it is ventricular tachycardia.
