    • Accelerated Idioventricular Rhythm
    • Rhythm: Regular
    • Rate: 50-120 bpm
    • P Wave: Absent
    • PR Interval: Not measurable
    • QRS: Wide (>0.10 sec), bizarre looking
  2. Image Upload
    Accelerated Junctional Rhythm

    • Rhythm: Regular
    • Rate: Normal (60-100 bpm)
    • P Wave: Present before, during (hidden) or after QRS, if visible it is inverted
    • PR Interval: Not measurable
    • QRS: Normal (0.06-0.10 sec)
  3. Image Upload
    Asystole

    • Rhythm: Not present
    • Rate: Absent
    • P Wave: Absent
    • PR Interval: Absent
    • QRS: Absent
    • Notes: Confirm with multiple leads
  4. Image Upload
    Atrial Fibrillation

    • Rhythm: Irregular
    • Rate: Very fast (> 350 bpm) for Atrial, but ventricular rate may be slow, normal or fast
    • P Wave: Absent - erratic waves are present
    • PR Interval: Absent
    • QRS: Normal but may be widened if there are conduction delays
  5. Image Upload
    Atrial Flutter

    • Rhythm: Regular or irregular
    • Rate: Fast (250-350 bpm) for Atrial, but ventricular rate is often slower
    • P Wave: Not observable, but saw-toothed flutter waves are present
    • PR Interval: Not measureable
    • QRS: Normal (0.06-0.10 sec)
  6. Image Upload
    Bundle Branch Block

    • Rhythm: Regular
    • Rate: The underlying rate
    • P Wave: Normal
    • PR Interval: Normal (0.12-0.20 sec)
    • QRS: Wide (>0.12 sec)
  7. Image Upload
    First Degree Heart Block

    • Rhythm: Regular
    • Rate: The underlying rate
    • P Wave: Normal
    • PR Interval: Prolonged (>0.20 sec)
    • QRS: Normal (0.06-0.10 sec)
    • Notes: A first degree AV block occurs when electrical impulses moving through the Atrioventricular (AV) node are delayed (but not blocked). First degree indicates slowed conduction without missed beats.
  8. Image Upload

    • Rate: Slow (40-60 bpm)
    • P Wave: Present before, during (hidden) or after QRS, if visible it is inverted
    • PR Interval: Not measurable
    • QRS: Normal (0.06-0.10 sec)
  10. Image Upload
    Junctional Tachycardia

    • Rhythm: Regular
    • Rate: Fast (100-180 bpm)
    • P Wave: Present before, during (hidden) or after QRS, if visible it is inverted
    • PR Interval: Absent or short
    • QRS: Normal (0.06-0.10 sec)
  11. Image Upload
    Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia

    • Rhythm: Irregular

    • PR Interval: Variable
    • QRS: Normal (0.06-0.10 sec)
    • Notes: T wave is often distorted Also review wandering atrial pacemaker lesson
