ECG #4 - ID 383 – Atrial fibrillation

  1. 1. Stepwise interpretation of ECG ID 383 –Atrial fibrillation
  2. 2. ID 383 – 76 year old woman in her family doctor’s office
  3. 3. Can you see P waves? ID 383 – 76 year old woman in her family doctor’s office
  4. 4. There are no P waves. There are fibrillatory waves that vary in size and shape. The ventricular rhythm is irregularly irregular (atrial fibrillation) – The rate is 66/min ID 383 – 76 year old woman in her family doctor’s office
