Learning on the go!

The goal of this newsletter is to provide you with enough information to be useful, but not more than can be learned within the busy schedule of a health care worker. You’ll find anatomy charts, additional vocabulary, occasional feedback from subscribers, and more! Feel free to read them now and save them for later use such as with a patient or as a study guide for coursework.

nodal-re-entrant tachycardia

Nodal reentry tachycardia—taquicardia por reentrada nodal

English description

In typical nodal reentry tachycardia pro (slow antegrade and retrograde conduction via AV conduction through the fast track), the P wave is not visible and can be visible right after the QRS complex and look like a pseudo R in lead V1.

Descripción en Español

En taquicardia pro reentrada nodal tipica (conduccion anterograda por la via AV lenta y conduccion retrograda por la via rapida), la onda P puede no verse y puede ser visible justo despues del complejo QRS y parecer una pseudo R en derivacion V1.
