Neutrinos remain the main mysterious and, arguably, the main interesting debris of the traditional version as their intrinsic houses reminiscent of absolute mass scale and CP homes are unknown. The open query of absolutely the neutrino mass scale should be addressed with extraordinary accuracy by means of the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) scan, presently less than building.

1. What is the cardiac rhythm diagnosis? 2. What is the treatment of choice? 30 Ambulatory Electrocardiography Diagnosis 12-lead ECG: The cardiac rhythm is sinus with a rate of 88 beats per minute. Her 12-lead EeG is within nortnallimits, except for a slight nonspecific S-T segment abnormality. Holter Monitor ECG: Strips A and Bare not continuous. The cardiac rhythm shows paroxysmal supraventricular (most likely atrial) tachycardia with a rate of 200 beats per minute. Note the frequent aberrant ventricular conduction (early part of strip A).

Thus, the first therapeu- A B c D tic approach should be a careful increase of the maintenance dosage of digitalis as the clinical circumstances permit. Otherwise, oral propranolol (lnderal) (10 to 30 mg, three to four times daily) should be added. If these two therapeutic approaches are ineffective, therapy is problematic, a common clinical experience. Restoration of sinus rhythm is difficult with chronic AF in elderly individuals, either by quinidine or direct current (DC) shock, because sinus node dysfunction, the sick sinus syndrome, is most likely present in this age group (see Table 9).

40 Ambulatory Electrocardiography Diagnosis 12-lead ECG: The cardiac rhythm is atrial flutter-fibrillation (AFl-AF) with a ventricular rate of 60 to 80 beats per minute. It is obvious to recognize RBBB. In addition, left ventricular hypertrophy is strongly suggested. Holter Monitor ECG: Strips A through D are not continuous. Again, the underlying cardiac rhythm is atrial flutter-fibrillation (AFIAF) but there are frequent ventricular escape (idioventricular) beats (X) as a result of the advanced A-V block.
