What is the diagnosis of ECG?

What is the diagnosis of the ECG?

A. Sinus Tachycardia

B. Atrial Fibrillation



Which of the following is a typical AVNRT?

A. Slow-Fast AVNRT

B. Fast- Slow AVNRT

C. Slow-Slow AVNRT

D. Fast-Fast AVNRT

Types of AVNRT –

A. “Typical”, “common”, or “slow-fast” AVNRT

Slow AV nodal pathway- anterograde limb of the circuit -conduct towards the ventricle

Fast AV nodal pathway – the retrograde limb – conduct to the atria

B. “Atypical”, “uncommon”, or “fast-slow” AVNRT

Fast AV nodal pathway – anterograde limb

Slow AV nodal pathway- retrograde limb .

C. “slow-slow” AVNRT –

Atypical AVNRT

Slow AV nodal pathway – the anterograde limb

Left atrial fibres that approach the AV node from the left side of the inter-atrial septum – retrograde limb

Typical AVNRT

“slow-fast” AVNRT

Anterograde conduction – via the slow pathway

Retrograde conduction -via the fast pathway

ECG may show typical changes that confirm the diagnosis-

  • QRS duration <120 ms, unless a heart block is suspected
  • Inverted P wave- occurs very soon after QRS complex.
  • RP interval is short – less than 50% of the time between consecutive QRS complexes.
  • RP interval is often so short that the inverted P waves may be buried within or seen immediately after the QRS complexes, appearing as

“pseudo R prime” wave in lead V1 or

“pseudo S” wave in the inferior leads
