Sample text

4, rate 58). 5, rate 125 bpm). The upper limit for sinus tachycardia in a given patient is estimated by a formula: (Max HR = 220 – patient’s age in years). Thus, the maximum HR a person can achieve decreases with age. Sinus rhythms, regardless of rate, are typically regular. When the heart rate varies by more than 10%, the rhythm is called sinus arrhythmia. 5 12 boxes 1500/12 = 125 Heart rate = 125 beats/minute Sinus Tachycardia Chapter 4 The Sinus Node: Master and Servant The sinus node normally sets and controls the rate of depolarization and contraction of the rest of the heart.

They are called precordial (in front of the heart) leads, and are named V1, V2, V3, V4, V5, and V6. 2 HERE] Sometimes an artifact appears where the leads change on the paper (the red arrows). It has no medical meaning, and simply signals that the EKG machine has changed the lead that it is recording. 2 19 Physiology Review of the Heart’s Conduction System EKG Paper and Time Lines The EKG is recorded on special standardized paper that scrolls out of the machine at a specific and controlled speed.

These impulses that travel through the atria via the internodal conduction pathway cause the atria to contract. 2). This electrical activation of the atria (called depolarization) is represented on the EKG as a “P” wave. This is normally the first wave, or “deflection,” on the EKG. 3 26 Chapter 3 Identifying the P Wave on the EKG Since the normal orderly process begins when the SA node depolarizes the right and left atria, we look for and see the P wave first. The size, shape, and amplitude of the P wave may vary.
