10 Apr ECG Features of Atrial Tachycardia. Atrial rate > bpm. P wave morphology is abnormal when compared with sinus P wave due to ectopic origin. There is usually an abnormal P-wave axis (e.g. inverted in the inferior leads II, III and aVF) ; At least three consecutive identical ectopic p waves. 10 Apr Atrial tachycardia has a more or less regular heart rate > bpm, with narrow QRS complexes but P-waves that do not originate from the sinus node but from another site in the atria. The P-waves therefore have a different configuration and their non-sinus origin can easily be recognized if the P waves are. Sinus tachycardia is recognized on an ECG with a normal upright P wave in lead II preceding every QRS complex, indicating that the pacemaker is coming from the sinus node and not elsewhere in the atria, with an atrial rate of greater than beats per minute. The ventricular rate (indicated by the QRS complex rate) is .
Atrial tachycardia and other ectopic atrial rhythms occur when a site outside of the sinus node, but within the atria, creates action potentials faster than the sinus node. This ectopic focus becomes the predominant pacemaker of the heart. When the atrial rate is greater than beats per minute, the rhythm is atrial tachycardia. On the contrary to many paroxysmal supraventricular tachyarrhythmias (e.g AVNRT, AVRT, or atrial tachycardia), sinus tachycardia has a gradual onset and the patient can often report that the palpitations accelereted gradually. Note that the mode of onset (abrupt vs. gradual) is an important piece in the puzzle to determine. Ectopic atrial tachycardia (or simply atrial tachycardia) occur when an ectopic focus in one of the atria discharges impulses at a higher rate than the sinoatrial node. This is due to abnormal automaticity or re-entry (triggered activity is much less common) taking place in the ectopic focus. The atrial rate ranges from to
Atrial Tachycardia. Image: Sinus Tachycardia (close up). Sinus Tachycardia ( close up). Although the rate is bpm, it is possible to clearly identify the P wave, QRS complex and T wave. Image: Sinus Tachycardia (full strip). Sinus Tachycardia (full strip). This is illustrated in the "ladder" diagram where normal sinus beats (P) are followed by three possible PACs; in the diagram the refractory periods of the AV node and bundle branches are indicated by the width of the boxes). image . Outcome #1. Nonconducted (blocked); i.e., no QRS complex because the PAC finds. 6 Feb This is his ECG: Does this patient have sinus tachycardia or does the ECG show supraventricular tachycardia? For this discussion, SVT will refer to atrial tachycardia, If the rate changes abruptly from a slow rate to a fast rate and the fast rate is the same rate from beginning to end, we are looking at PSVT.
