Example text

The rate is measured from the R-R interval, the distance between one R wave and the next. If the atrial rate (the number of P waves) and the ventricular rate (the number of QRS complexes) vary, the analysis may show them as different rates, one atrial and one ventricular. The method chosen to calculate HR varies according to rate and regularity on the ECG tracing. Method 1: Count Large Boxes Regular rhythms can be quickly determined by counting the number of large graph boxes between two R waves.

PR intervals and QRS complexes are of normal duration. 10 sec) Clinical Tip: A normal ECG does not exclude heart disease. Clinical Tip: This rhythm is generated by the sinus node and its rate is within normal limits (60–80 bpm). 32 33 Sinus Bradycardia ■ The SA node discharges more slowly than in NSR. 10 sec) Clinical Tip: Sinus bradycardia is normal in athletes and during sleep. In acute MI, it may be protective and beneficial or the slow rate may compromise cardiac output. Certain medications, such as beta blockers, may also cause sinus bradycardia.

Electrical impulses are rapidly conducted to the ventricles. ■ These rapid impulses slur the initial portion of the QRS; the slurred effect is called a delta wave. 10 sec); delta wave present Clinical Tip: WPW is associated with narrow-complex tachycardias, including A-flutter and A-fib. 46 47 Junctional Arrhythmias Absent P wave Junctional Rhythm ■ The atria and SA node do not perform their normal pacemaking functions. ■ A junctional escape rhythm begins. 10 sec) Clinical Tip: Sinus node disease that causes inappropriate slowing of the sinus node may exacerbate this rhythm.
