You have the Beat

Sinus, atrial, junctional and ventricular dysrhythmias

Interpretation of ECG Tracing
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Rate (atrial & ventricular) Rhythm (atrial & ventricular) Presence or absence of P waves PR interval 0.12 – 0.20 sec QRS complex 0.06 – 0.12 sec Relationship of QRS to P wave QT interval < .55 sec Interpretation
2

Sinus Rhythm

3

Normal sinus rhythm
• Atrial (P) & ventricular (QRS) rate:
– 60 – 100 beats/min

• Regular rhythm:
– Constant PP & RR intervals – P wave before the QRS

4

Atrial Rhythms
• • • • • • • Sinus Rhythm Sinus Bradycardia Sinus Tachycardia Sinus Arrhythmia PAC’s Atrial fibrillation Atrial flutter • Sick sinus • Wandering pacemaker • Atrial Tachycardia • SVT

5

Sinus Bradycardia

6

Sinus Tachycardia

7

Premature Atrial Contractions (PACs)

8

Atrial fibrillation (A Fib)

9

Atrial flutter

10

Sinus Arrhythmia

11

Wandering Atrial Pacemaker

12

SVT
• Supra (above) ventricular tachycardia

13

Intrinsic Rates
• • • • SA node Atria Junctional Ventricular

14

Junctional Rhythms

15

Junctional Rhythms
• Rate 40-60 • Absent or altered p waves • Narrow QRS complex

16

Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVCs)

17

??
Treatment is usually required if there are more than six PVCs per minute.

TRUE or FALSE

18

Ventricular Tachycardia (VT)

19

??
Ventricular tachycardia is characterized by: A. 3 or more PVCs in a row B. A rate of 100-220 bpm C. Wide and bizarre QRS complexes D. All of the above
20

Ventricular Fibrillation (V Fib)

21

Torsades de Pointes
