The presence of multiple P wave morphologies indicates multiple ectopic pacemakers within the atria and/or AV junction. If ≥ 3 different P wave morphologies are seen, then multifocal atrial rhythm is diagnosed:

We therefore interpret this tracing as showing “AV dissociation” – since at least some P waves are unrelated to the QRS complexes that follow them. The term AV dissociation should never be used as a “diagnosis” per se.  Instead – it is the result of the underlying rhythm on the tracing.  In this case – the underlying rhythm is sinus bradycardia at a rate of 50/minute (the P-P interval is precisely 6 large boxes in duration for each of the P waves on this tracing). AV dissociation occurs by…

record your voice and then take an image of the sound wave you created and turn it into a framed print - really creative gift idea.

P-waves: 1) Are they present? 2) Do they occur regularly? 3) Is there one P-wave for each QRS complex? 4) Are the P-waves smooth, rounded, and upright? 5) Do all the P-waves have similar shapes?
