Heart Blocks ECG 25

  1. Atrial flutter with a slow ventricular response
  2. 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.
