In other studies, Saratkumar Reddy et al.6 found other parameters like atrial ectopics, ventricular ectopics, incomplete RBBB, complete RBBB and atrial fibrillation and arrhythmias were seen in more than 50% of their patients. ECG changes occur in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) due to: The presence of hyperexpanded emphysematous lungs within the chest. Satish Kinagi Study.12 found 18% patients had concomitant coronary artery disease; 12/72 had 2+3+avf leads with P wave amplitude >9 mm and he stated that this is one of the indications for long-term oxygen therapy as per the American Thoracic Society. Several studies showed the importance of P pulmonale in ECG and correlated with severity of COPD. The present study demonstrates that 2 of the 6 collected ECG signs of CCP were significantly associated with a shorter survival in COPD patients and that a Pao2−Pao2 >48 mm Hg during oxygen therapy further worsened the prognosis. The long-term effects of hypoxic … A 70 yo M with DM, HTN, severe COPD on home oxygen at 4 L/min (quit tobacco 2014), who was recently evaluated by Family Medicine ... to changes in diagnostic thinking, effect on patient ... no cardiac history referred by Family Practice for palpitations. We can help such patients in stopping smoking and instituting proper therapy, so that long-term complications are prevented and longevity improved. Vertical heart position was observed in 65% of patients of Hina Banker Study.2 65% of patients in this study showed dominant S wave in V5 and V6 and in our study only 14.4 percent showed this sign in ECG.

Echocardiographic findings in our study included mild-to-severe pulmonary hypertension, RV hypertrophy (26.82%), cardiac arrhythmias (8.24%) and cardiac failure (8.24%). ISSN 2320-6691 (Online), ISSN 2347-954X (Print). In contrast, the presence of echocardiographic abnormalities did not appear to modify exercise tolerance or quality of life. reported a cohort of 21 patients with JDM. The results of the present study, conducted in one of the largest cohorts of COPD patients assessed by echocardiography to date, show an elevated prevalence of both left and right cardiac disorders … S1S2S3 has been found to be associated with acute pulmonary thromboembolism and has been reported to be among suggestive but not specific criteria of CCP.1315 Most of our patients wi… This work was performed as part of the doctoral programme in Internal Medicine at the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona. Lazović B, Svenda MZ, Mazić S, et al. Furthermore, we did not find any association between the use of bronchodilators and echocardiographic abnormalities, in line with recent reanalyses of large clinical trials [35]. Electrocardiographic characteristics of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. DOI:10.14260/jemds/2014/3710. Echocardiography is the modality of choice for diagnosing pulmonary regurgitation. The rhythm is coarse … Sarath Kumar Reddy B, Lokendranath G, Prabhakar Rao R. Electrocardiographic changes in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Whereas right heart abnormalities could be anticipated, such a high prevalence of left heart abnormalities is a novel and unexpected finding that was unrelated to disease severity. Journal of Evolution of Medical and dental sciences 2015;4(42):7275-7281. Deepak Gupta, Pradeep Agrawal, Kothari RP, et al. Indian Journal of Basic & Applied Medical Research 2013;6(2):527-530. Among those with abnormal echo, systolic LV dysfunction was uncommon, seen in . Velocity between 2.5-3.0 m/s is normal for an acute PE assuming the right heart is not accustomed to high pressures previously. First, the absence of a control group limits a definite assessment of the role of COPD in the pathogenesis of cardiac disorders. ECG and Echo being non-invasive are more useful than invasive procedures like right heart catheterization. COPD is 4th leading cause of death in the world and becomes 3rd leading cause of death by 2030 worldwide. Specific cardiac pathology and/or ECG and echo findings were not described in that study. Ramakrishna Rachakonda1, Suryakumari Beri2, Kalyankumar P. V3. Sandeep Krishna Nalabothu, Leela Krishna Kaku. Prevalence of P pulmonale increased with severity of COPD, but in our study only 7 patients belonged to severe and very severe group. Combination of rS pattern in lead V5-V6, right axis deviation, clockwise rotation, dominant R in lead aVR and “P” pulmonale were indicative of RVH in patients lacking classical RVH changes in ECG.7 Humagain S et al. Analysis of electrocardiogram in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients. As anticipated, a previous diagnosis of cardiac disease was associated with greater prevalence of echocardiographic abnormalities in the left heart, but the lack of association between the presence of cardiovascular risk factors and echocardiographic abnormalities was unexpected. It is important to assess a patient of COPD not only with clinical, radiological, spirometric criteria, but also with ECG and Echo findings as later parameters can assess the severity and outcome of the disease better. The S1Q3T3 pattern on ECG is considered pathognomic. In this group, mild PAH was seen 42/90 (46.66%), moderate PAH was seen in 21/90 (23.33%) and severe PAH was seen in 14/90 (15.55%). In severe COPD, one of five subjects had P pulmonale (20%). In the present cohort the severity of airflow obstruction was not associated with the prevalence of heart disease. Additionally, Pachman et al. Therefore, TR velocities are not particularly high in an acute PE. Alexander V, Pajanivel R, Surendra Menon K, et al. Presence of P pulmonale in ECG, R/S ratio less than was significantly correlated with RV dysfunction by echo, but less so with R/S ratio >1 in V1. The classical view of the development of heart failure in patients with COPD is that hypoxia leads to pulmonary hypertension, which imposes increased work on the right ventricle, leading to right ventricular hypertrophy and eventually RV dilatation and then RV failure. Satish Kinagi Study.12 showed that the complications of COPD like pulmonary hypertension, cor pulmonale were better found by ECG and echocardiogram. Mild group included 6 patients, moderate group 90 patients. Were the most sensitive indicators of RV function and pulmonary  hypertension. The American Journal of science and medical research 2015;1(1):112-119. Similar views were explained in the studies of Asif Hasan.16 and Shresta.17 Chetan Rathi.18 stressed the importance of echocardiography in mild-to-moderate COPD patients to detect early changes of pulmonary arterial hypertension and explained that study of PASP and TAPSE (Trans-tricuspid annular plane systolic Excursions). In our study of 97 patients belonging to moderate, severe and very severe categories Echo showed EF<50% in 35/97 (36.08%) patients. In this study, ECG abnormalities were present in 6 of 14 JDM patients (37.5%); 3 patients had right bundle branch block and another 3 had ST changes.

Remember that pulmonary resistance, not pressure, elevates during a pulmonary embolism. Among the 103 patients examined, 6 patients belonged to mild COPD with an FEV1 of >80% predicted; 90 patients belonged to moderate category with FEV1 values after bronchodilator therapy between 50-80% of predicted value, 5 patients belonged to severe category with post bronchodilator FEV1 between 30 and 50% of predicted value and 2 patients belonged to very severe category with post bronchodilator FEV1 less than 30% of predicted value. Thorough history taking, clinical examination, spirometry, chest X-ray, arterial blood gases, 6-minute walk testing, ECG, Echocardiography together can assess a patient of COPD in identifying early pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular dysfunction leading to increased symptomatology and complications altering prognosis. Lokendra Dave study.13 revealed that the stage of COPD is proportional to prevalence and severity of Pulmonary Artery Hypertension (PAH). Hina Banker, Anita Verma. s−1, which is equivalent to a systolic PAP >55 mmHg, a value close to the estimated prevalence of out-of-proportion PH in COPD [33]. NHL Journal of Medical Sciences 2013;2(2):55-58. Shrestha B, Dhungel S, Chokhani R. Echocardiography based cardiac evaluation in the patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The ECG … Echocardiography is a very useful noninvasive investigation to assess pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular hypertrophy. Increased incidence of ‘p’ pulmonale, right axis deviation and RVH were observed in patients with moderate COPD because majority of our patients belonged to moderate COPD group. They found that 10 of 20 children had ECG abnormalities . 3Associate Professor, Department of Pulmonology, Katuri Medical College, Guntur. Evaluation of right ventricular dysfunction andf pulmonary artery hypertension to secondary COPD severity by electrocardiogram and echocardiography. Perspective: This cohort study reports that in patients with COVID-19 infection, one third had normal echocardiography. The diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is made by symptoms in the history and confirmed by physical examination, radiographic examination and lung spirometry for airway obstruction by Spiroanalyzer. Some classical ECG features of COPD could not be ascribed to one pathophysiological mechanism, so still, when suspecting ECG changes in COPD, we shall look for a modest increase in heart rate, a … Other manifestations like RBBB (Prolonged QRS >0.10 sec, broad terminal S wave in lead 1, V5, V6 and RSR complex in V1 are also seen in about 10 of 97 (10.3%)). Similar views were echoed by D. Radhakrishnan et al.9 Study. In the present study, the incidence of all the ECG findings increased as the severity of the disease increased. It is necessary to diagnose the disease early and identify patients who are likely to develop complications of pulmonary hypertension, right ventricular hypertrophy and cor pulmonale to prevent long-term complications, promote longevity and improve quality of life. National journal of medical research 2013;3(4):385-388. print ISSN:2249-4995.│eISSN:2277-8810. Secondly, the range of COPD severity is somewhat restricted, limiting the extrapolation of current findings to the whole disease spectrum. Cardiovascular complications in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with reference to 2d echocardiography findings. Jayadev S Mod, Parthavi Khandhar, Kanhai Lalani. The McConnell sign (impaired hypokinetic right ventricle and spared apex) in a haemodynamically unstable patient is suggestive of pulmonary … The reason for the differences in the ECG findings in our study may be due to the fact that the sample size was small and also as we had categorized the patients to different groups compared to the other studies, which were carried out on large number of patients without categorization and further our study correlated with other studies in right ventricular hypertrophy, right axis deviation, right bundle branch block and P pulmonale when we correlated these findings in severe and very severe COPD patients, but most of our patients belonged to moderate COPD. Right axis deviation of QRS complex; c. R/S amplitude ratio in V6 is less than 1; d. R/S amplitude ratio in V1 more than 1; e. Clockwise rotation of the electrical axis; f. Right bundle branch block; g. S1, Q3 or S1, S2, S3 patterns. Cases excluded from the present study are those with a primary diagnosis of bronchial asthma, known sleep apnoea, lung cancer, known left ventricular dysfunction, other debilitating cancers, poorly controlled hypertension, significant valvular disease and known coronary artery diseases (Angina, Ischaemic changes in resting ECG or documented history of myocardial infarction). COPD is a major cause of death worldwide. Yet, we prospectively assessed patients at a very specific and clinically relevant time-point, i.e. Finally, the presence of previous cardiovascular disease was dependent on patient self-reporting, thus we cannot exclude the under-reporting of pre-existing cardiovascular disorders. Similar views were echoed in Sandeep Nallabothu Study.4 and Vineet Alexander Study.5. Acute pulmonary embolism can lead to sudden cor pulmonale, which can be reflected as characteristic changes on the ECG and echocardiogram. Our study showed lesser incidence of P pulmonale, because majority of our patients presented in moderate COPD stage. Patients with active pulmonary Koch’s or history of old pulmonary Koch’s were excluded from the study. Detection of right sided heart changes and pulmonary hypertension in COPD patients. Echocardiography has been concluded to be of better sensitivity than ECG in diagnosing CPHD and both methods, non-invasive and easily applicable, have an important role in examining cardiac changes … 2D Echo is also many a times inaccurate to detect pulmonary hypertension in COPD patients. Echo identified more percent of patients with RV dysfunction compared to ECG. Egyptian Journal of Chest Diseases and Tuberculosis 2015;64(2):335–341. Electrocardiographic Features The ECG changes associated with acute pulmonary embolism may be seen in any condition that causes acute pulmonary hypertension, including hypoxia … A study of correlation between echocardiographic changes with the duration and severity of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Alexander V, Pajanivel R, Surendra Menon K, et al. Ecg changes in chronic cor pulmonale. The patients who are diagnosed as having chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as per GOLD guidelines with FEV1/FVC <70% or less are further divided into 3 groups. When considering echocardiogram vs. EKG its important to have a basic understanding of both tests. Sch J App Med Sci 2015;3(1G):470-472. We propose that it is necessary to treat a COPD both by Cardiologist and Pulmonary Physician and all modalities of examination clinical, radiological, spirometry, ECG and echocardiogram together can help in identifying pulmonary hypertension to prevent long-term complications. Resting Echo … IOSR Journal of Dental and Medical Sciences (IOSR-JDMS) 2015;14(9):49-52. e-ISSN:2279-0853, p-ISSN:2279-0861. www.iosrjournals.org. Online ISSN: 1399-3003, Copyright © 2021 by the European Respiratory Society. Jayadev S. Mod Study.3 revealed that in comparison with ECG, 2D Echo Echocardiography can detect RV measurements, interventricular septum thickness, but cannot measure accurately RV ejection fractions. Non-invasive and easily available can be routinely recommended in COPD. Correlation of pulmonology and cardiology teams is necessary in diagnosing and treating these patients as good number of COPD patients have associated coronary artery disease and LVDF.18 which can be devastating individually as well as a comorbidity along with COPD. Prevalence cardiac comorbidities and its relation to severity staging of chronic obstructive pulmonary … Introduction: Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) often have abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG). Chetan Rathi, Anil Wanjari, Sourya Acharya. Atrial ectopics were seen in 18.55% and ventricular ectopics were seen in 3.09%. Editor(s)-in-Chief: C. Michael Gibson, M.S., M.D. The most frequent abnormality was RV dilation with or without dysfunction, likely due to pulmonary … Our study showed that Echo is more sensitive in analysis of PAH and RVH. Right axis deviation was seen in 4 patients belonging to moderate group (4.96%). ISSN: 2249-9660. Normal ECG was found in 35 out of 97 patients (39.17%). CERTIFICATE This is to certify that this dissertation in "ECG AND ECHOCARDIOGRAPHIC FINDINGS IN CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE" was a work done by Dr.B.ANTONY BENEDICT BABU … Study.8 showed that amplitude of p wave is increased in II, III and avf leads in high PASP (>30 mmHg) in moderate COPD patients. There was significant negative correlation between FEV1, FEV1/FVC ratio and ECG changes; 4% of patients showed RBBB and 2% of patients showed 7 mm R wave in V1. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of chronic morbidity and mortality throughout the world. their first hospital admission due to an exacerbation, and carefully screened patients who satisfied the diagnosis of COPD in a number of hospitals with different clinical practices. Elevated pulmonary pressures in pulmonary hypertension (PH) can lead to right ventricular hypertrophy and right atrial enlargement which can sometimes be observed on electrocardiogram (ECG). The RA dilatation is a consequence of systolic overload on RA due to RV hypertrophy.

Other studies that correlated the importance of Echocardiography in COPD patients include Lokendra Dave Study.13 Vikram B Vikhe Study.14 Vineet Alexander Study.5 Bhupendrakumar Study.22 and Jain et al. Thirdly, the study had a cross-sectional design, so no causal relationships with clinical outcomes could be established. (Measurable tricuspid regurgitation), pulmonary hypertension with measurable SPAP of >30 mmHg were found in majority in this study. In the moderate group, in our study 77/90 patients showed pulmonary hypertension by Echo. In a study done by N.K. To evaluate the extent and diagnostic values of ECG changes among COPD patients suffering from broad spectrum of respiratory diseases. ECG changes significantly correlated with low values of FEV1/FVC ratio. Radha Krishnan D, Barama Srihari. Pulmonary arterial hypertension was seen in 94.84%, RV hypertrophy was seen in 26.82%. It is very sensitive even in mild-to-moderate COPD patients. Ann Int Med Den Res 2015;1(3):213-17. Our study and several other studies showed.1 ECG and Echocardiography can be normal in a significant number of patients of COPD. Despite the greater diagnostic accuracy of indexed volumes, left atrium diameters provide valuable information and might be less prone to misevaluation in patients with a suboptimal echocardiographic window. … Teerthanker mahaveer medical college & research center, moradabad, diagnosis of severity of COPD on the basis of electrocardiogram.

We have studied 103 (N=103) patients diagnosed as COPD in our tertiary care centre. Journal of Evidence based Medicine and Healthcare 2015;2(42):7330-7340. These are placed on designated areas around the heart and … Incidence of Pulmonary Hypertension in Echo-cardiographic Examination. However, as discussed above, increasing evidence suggests that COPD may induce vascular damage by mechanisms independent of cigarette smoking [3, 4] and that lung hyperinflation may directly affect ventricular function [6, 29]. They applied the LAD occlusion vs. early repol formula (see sidebar for excel applet and … Cardiac Sarcoidosis Vera H. Rigolin, MD Vice-President, American Society of Echocardiography. Proper institution of therapy can prevent long-term complications of severe pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure and can prolong the life and improve quality of life among COPD patients.
