Jason's Blog: ECG Challenge for the months of July and August, 2014.

This is an ECG I performed a couple of years ago on an asymptomatic 83-year old man as an outpatient procedure. 

The computer interpreted this as:  "Marked sinus bradycardia [with] Frequent Premature ventricular complexes".  IS THE COMPUTER CORRECT?  Is there more than one plausible interpretation?  What is the differential diagnosis?

Jason's Blog: ECG Challenge for the month of June, 2014.

This is an ECG I performed on a 65-year old man about 5 years ago.  He mentioned something to me about his past medical history before we got started but, in truth, I would have recognized it had he not told me beforehand.  What did he tell me and what does this ECG reveal?

Jason's Blog: ECG Challenge for the month of December, 2013.

The only patient data I have is that this ECG is from a 73-year old man.  At the request of the site administrator (Dawn Altman), I'm posting this ECG because there isn't one quite like it in the Guru's archives.  Some readers will recognize it as one I recently posted on another website.  This one lives up to the title of "Challenging".  I'll make the same general statement I did on the other website:  You'll need to make careful measurements with calipers on this ECG to come to the correct interpretation.

Jason's Blog: ECG Challenge of the Week for March 10th - 17th. Mutual mimics

These are two 12-lead ECGs that I performed on two completely different patients several years apart. 

Patient's clinical data (Top ECG):
57-year-old black man

Patient's clinical data (Bottom ECG):
67-year-old black man

Are both of these ECGs showing the same rhythmic pattern?
