Chapter 4- interpretation Review

What are the 5 characteristics that make up each cardiac arrhythmia? Rate, Rhythm, P-wave, QRS Complex, PRI
What is the first question you should ask yourself when analyzing ECG strips? Is there a P, Q, R, S, T on every beat?
YES, there is a P, Q, R, S, T on every beat! Now what group of arrhythmia's hold the answer? Sinus group
NOPE, there isn't a P, Q, R, S, T on every beat! What should you do? find out what is wrong
If the SA node fails to fire temporarily, which arrhythmia do you have? Sinus Arrest
What is affected on the ECG tracing w/ an Atrial Arrhythmia? The P-Wave
What may a P-Wave look like w/ an Atrial Arrhythmia? Premature, abnormal shaped, hidden
What does the P-wave look like in Atrial Flutter? Saw-toothed
What is affected on the ECG tracing w/ a Junctional Arrhythmia? P-wave
What does a P-wave look like on a Junctional Arrhythmia? Inverted before, during or after the QRS complex
What does the F wave in A-Fib stand for? Fibrillation
If there is a premature beat every other beat, what is this called? Bigeminy
What remained the same in all sinus, atrial an junctional arrhythmias? QRS Complex (<.12)
If the SA node fails to pace the heart, the AV node takes over. What arrhythmia is this? Junctional escape
What is the rate when the AV node takes over? 40-60bpm
If your QRS complex is wide and bizarre- what is it called? PVC
If you have 3 PVC's together it is called? triplet
What is the PRI for all Ventricular Arrhythmia's N/A
If you have no distinguishable waves, what are you looking at? V-fib
If you have a semi to full flat line, what are you looking at? asystole
