Flashcards in ARS: Arrhythmias Deck (11):
1

Impulses take chaotic, random pathways in atria

Atrial Fibrillation

2

Sinus Tachycardia Description (HR, P wave, Sinus Massage Response)

100-180, Normal, Atrial rate may slow

3

Reentrant SVTs (HR, P wave, Sinus Massage Response)

140-250, Hidden or Retrograde, May abruptly terminate

4

Focal Atrial Tachycardia (HR, P wave, Sinus Massage Response)

130-250, Differs from normal P, AV block may increase (doesn't usually revert)

5

Atrial Flutter (HR, P wave, Sinus Massage Response)

180-350, "Saw-toothed", AV block may increase

6

Ventricular Tachycardia Description

Large, Wide QRS Complexes with normal rhythm (rate > 100 bpm)

7

Third Degree AV Block

P waves do not correlate to QRS complexes. (Atrial > Ventricular Rate)

8

1) P Waves present and followed by QRS
2) QRS is narrow and mostly regular but one P wave and QRS are early
3) The early P wave looks different than the others
Diagnosis?

Premature Atrial Contraction

9

No visible p waves with narrow regular QRS

Junctional Tachycardia

10

P waves preceding a narrow QRS in a very rapid, regular rhythm

Atrial Tachycardia

11

No P waves
Narrow QRS that is irregularly, irregular

Atrial Fibrillation
