Supraventricular arrhythmias: an introduction

In this presentation, we look at one of the two main types of abnormal rhythms: supraventricular arrhythmias.

Abnormal heart rhythms occur when the electrical impulse does not originate at the sinus node and follow the normal path through the atria and ventricles.

In this presentation, we look at one of the two main types of abnormal heart rhythms (or arrhythmias), called supraventricular arrhythmias. We will also focus in particular on atrial fibrillation; exploring the origin and ECG features of this arrhythmia.

As this is a powerpoint presentation, we’ve also created an illustrated transcript for you to download in the download section.
