Abstract

Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) disorder is a disorder where there is additional accessory electrical pathway in the heart. Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW) is the commonest form of ventricular pre-excitation. Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome is not rare in the emergency department. Its early recognition and prompt treatment gives fast restoration to sinus rhythm. Early refer to cardiologist for electrophysiological study is necessary for early diagnosis and needed intervention. The patient with the Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) ECG design has much in the same way as patients with different conditions, like, long-QT disorder and Brugada disorder, because in sinus rhythm electrocardiogram (ECG) is different as compared to tachyarrthymic status of the same patient another differential with WPW syndrome will be LGL syndrome where delta wave will be absent.
