Heart Blocks ECG 25
- Atrial flutter with a slow ventricular response
- Right bundle branch block
When atrial flutter is seen with such a slow ventricular response (in this case, 9:1 conduction), there is concern for underlying complete heart block should the patient be restored to normal sinus rhythm with a cardioversion. This is especially true if no AV blocking medications were being taken at the time of this ECG.
