Unlike narrow QRS complex tachycardia (which is always supraventricular), Wide QRS can be either supraventricular or ventricular.
Narrow QRS Complex is almost always due to supraventricular arrhythmia.
Dressler syndrome = combination of fever, pleuritic pain, pericardial effusion and a raised ESR. Dressler syndrome is treated with NSAIDs
Dressler's syndrome tends to occur around 2-6 weeks following a MI.
Left ventricular free wall rupture - This is seen in around 3% cases of MI and occurs after 1 week.
Ventricular fibrillation is the most common cause of death following a Myocardial Infarction.
Döhle bodies seen in neutrophils in inflammatory states and are composed of agglutinated rough endoplasmic reticulum containing RNA.
Activated Protein C resistance in >90% of cases result from a mutation Arg506Glu in factor V Leiden (FVL).
Because RVV activates factor X directly, defects of the contact system and factor VIII, IX, or XI deficiencies do not influence the test.
Russell's viper venom activates factor X leading to a fibrin clot in the presence of factor V, prothrombin, phospholipid, and calcium ions.
Coarse basophilic stippling is also reported in pyrimidine-5′-nucleotidase deficiency and arsenic poisoning.
Basophilic stippling is coarse in lead poisoning as a result of precipitation of RNA secondary to pyrimidine-5′-nucleotidase inhibition.
