ABSTRACT
1. A discussion of the theoretic concepts presently used to explain the mechanism of coupled and of independent (parasystolic) premature beats is presented. 2. The electrocardiogram and case record of a patient manifesting an atrial arrhythmia intermediate between coupled and parasystolic in diagnostic criteria are described. 3. The implications of the analysis of this tracing on the single focus theory of the etiology of premature impulse formation is outlined.
