Idioventricular Rhythm in a Calf Suffering from Diarrhea
Electrocardiographic examination of a seven-day-old Holstein calf suffering from diarrhea revealed evidence of idioventricular rhythm with wide aberrant QRS complexes and T waves. In the present case, which involved severe metabolic acidosis and hyperkalemia, after the acid-base and electrolyte imbalance were corrected solely by fluid therapy (physiologic sodium chlorid and dextrose solutions with bicarbonate), sinus rhythm was recorded.
