Conduction: Retrograde through the atria; usually normal through the ventricles. • Treatment is usually not necessary. 12 ᭤ Cardiac Rhythms, ECG Characteristics, and Treatment Guide (continued ) Rhythm Junctional rhythm ECG Characteristics • Rate: Junctional rhythm, 40-60 beats/min; accelerated junctional rhythm, 60-100 beats/min; junctional tachycardia, 100-250 beats/min. • Rhythm: Regular. • P waves: May precede or follow QRS. 11 second or less if P waves precede QRS. • QRS complex: Usually normal.
For ventricular escape rhythms, use atropine to increase sinus rate and overdrive ventricular rhythm. • Use ventricular pacing to increase ventricular rate if escape rhythm is too slow. 12 ᭤ Cardiac Rhythms, ECG Characteristics, and Treatment Guide (continued ) Rhythm Ventricular tachycardia ECG Characteristics • Rate: Ventricular rate is faster than 100 beats/min. • Rhythm: Usually regular but may be slightly irregular. • P waves: P waves may be seen but will not be related to QRS complexes (dissociated from QRS complexes).
Rhythm: Usually regular except when PACs occur, resulting in early beats. PACs usually have a noncompensatory pause. • P waves: Precede every QRS. The conﬁguration of the premature P wave differs from that of the sinus P waves. • PR interval: May be normal or long depending on the prematurity of the beat. Very early PACs may ﬁnd the AV junction still partially refractory and unable to conduct at a normal rate, resulting in a prolonged PR interval. • QRS complex: May be normal, aberrant (wide), or absent, depending on the prematurity of the beat.
