STEPS IN RHYTHM INTERPRETATION Step1. REGULAR OR IRREGULAR? Step2. RATE – VENTRICULAR FIRST THEN ATRIAL Step3. P waves – look to see if they are there --- and if there is one for every QRS------- and they are all looking alike Step4 . Measure the PR intervals ( normal is 0.12-0.20sec . ) measured along the base on the horizontal line) Step5. Measure the QRS complexes ( normal is 0.06-0.10 sec. ) measured from the beginning of the R wave to end of the R wave on the horizontal plane SINUS RHYTHMS ATRIAL RHYTHMS JUNCTIONAL RHYTHM VENTRICULAR RHYTHMS Sinus Rhythm = regular R to R rate 60-100 P waves preceeding every QRS and they are shaped the same PR Interval 0.12-0.20 ORS complexes = 0.06-0.10 Atrial Fibrillation = irregular R to R Rate – varies ( if within normal 60- 100 it is called controlled if > 90-100 it is called uncontrolled) P waves - none QRS complexes = 0.06-0.10 Junctional Rhythm regular R to R rate 40-60 (If the junctional rhythm is > than 60 but < than 100 it is called an
