This is different to cells of the His-Purkinje system which tend to fail suddenly and unexpectedly i. Tumor-related AV block may occur in cases of rhabdomyoma involving the AV conduction system. The RR interval of the pause is equal to the two preceding RR intervals. The PR interval progressively increases from one complex to the next. What if the P-P interval is regular at rate of bpm but the R-R is irregular with rates varying from bpm?
Therefore, the ventricular rate is neither regular nor completely dissociated. If the ratio is greater than 1-to-1 such as 2-to-1, 3-to-1, etc. I am sorry, but this site is only supported in an strict HTML compliant browser.
