About the Course:
Eating disorders, in particular anorexia nervosa (AN), are associated with cardiovascular complications and risk of arrhythmias. In a recent published study, it was found that patients with eating disorders, especially those affected by bulimia nervosa (BN) and a history of AN have abnormal late ventricular potentials (LPs). LPs are electrocardiographic markers used in detecting abnormal depolarization and increased risk of arrhythmias. Given the paucity of knowledge regarding the affects of eating disorders on cardiac depolarization, our aim was to further explore LPs in patients with eating disorders.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Normal Late Ventricular Potentials in Hospitalized Patients With Eating Disorders: Volume 45 Issue 7 created by Moshe Nussinovitch, MD, Eitan Gur, MD, Keren Kaminer, MD, Benjamin Volovitz, MD, Naomi Nussinovitch, MD, and Udi Nussinovitch, MD
Journal/Publisher:Wiley Interscience Journal, International Journal of Eating Disorders
Publication Date:November 2012
