Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Physiological cardiac electrical activity is characterized by sinus rhythm consisting of a regular sequence of activation of the atria (shown on the surface electrocardiograph [ECG] as a P wave), the atrioventricular (AV) node (PR interval), the ventricular myocardium (the QRS complex) and return to electrical rest (the T wave). The heart-beats show a regular cadence and the morphology of the EKG does not vary.
