    upright, rounded P-Waves
  2. Normal Sinus description
    • Rate 60-100
    • P-waves upright all look the same all followed by QRS
    • PRI: 0.12 - 0.20 sec
    • QRS: < 0.12, one after each P wave constant duration throughout
  3. regular rhythm
    Heart Rate >60
    P upright, one QRS occur regĀ all look the same
    PRI 0.12 - 0.20
    QRS: <0.12, one after each P-Wave and constant throughout
    Sinus Bradycardia
  4. Medications for Sinus Brady
    • Atropine
    • Isoproterenol (check BP and HR before and after)
  5. treatment for sinus
    • observe if asymptomatic
    • wake up encourage activity
    • temp pacemaker at bedside then permanent implanted
  6. Hallmark sign for bradycardia
    HR < 60, all other parameter normal WNL
  7. Sinus Tachycardia
    • rhythm regular
    • HR 100-150
    • PRI 0.12-0.20
    • QRS<0.12, one after each p-wave and constant throughout
  8. Intervention for Tachycardia
    • attempt to remain calm
    • encourage rest and reduce activity
    • use diuretic or anti-anxiety agent, Lanoxin or Inderol (GIVE BETA-BLOCKER)
    • oxygen

    HR 100-150, all other parameters normal
  10. HR 100-150, all other parameters normal
    Hallmark signs of tachycardia
  11. description of Sinus Arrhythmia
    • rhythm regular with repetitive pattern that mimics resp.
    • HR 60-100
    • PRI 0.12-0.20
    • QRS <0.12 one after each p-wave
  12. clinical picture of sinus arrhythmias
    • breathing deeply
    • sleeps soundly, may be snoring
  13. Hallmark sign of Sinus Arrhythmia
