|Abstract||Adenosine, used to terminate paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), is often useful in understanding the mechanism of tachycardia. This case report describes induction of SVT with adenosine in a 36-year-old man presenting with recurrent palpitations. After a short run of conduction via both slow and fast pathways, SVT was induced following a long PR interval. The long PR interval resulted by conduction via the slow pathway due to the preferential conduction block by adenosine over fast pathway. The notching at the terminal part of QRS during antegrade slow pathway conduction and during tachycardia indicated activation of the atrium via retrograde fast pathway. This electrocardiographical feature confirmed the mechanism of the tachycardia as atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
