Seven patients presented with atrial flutter with 4:1 AV conduction. They all spontaneously reverted to a normal sinus rhythm. His bundle electrograms were then performed. The five patients who showed a first degree AV block demonstrated a prolongation of the AH interval. One of the five subjects also showed a prolonged HQ interval. The two patients who did not show a first degree AV block demonstrated a prolonged HQ interval. Atrial flutter with 4:1 AV conduction is always associated with an impairment in the conduction system.

    Atrial arrhythmias are believed to be influenced by autonomic nervous system tone. We evaluated the effects of sympathetic and parasympathetic activation on atrial flutter (AFl) by determining the effects of norepinephrine (NE) and acetylcholine (ACh) on the composition of the excitable gap. A...

    Respiration influences the sinus heart rate, however, little is still known about the tachyarrhythmias related to respiration. Atrial tachycardia (AT) rarely emerges during inspiration and it also ceases during expiration. This type of AT is thus called respiratory cycle-dependent atrial...
