Arrhythmia Recognition Part 1

This is part one of two posters to assist healthcare professionals in recognizing basic arrhythmias. According to the Practice Standards for Electrocardiographic Monitoring in Hospital Settings (Circulation. 2004, 110:2721-2746) in general, the mechanisms of arrhythmias are the same in both adults and children. However, the ECG appearance of the arrhythmias may differ due to developmental issues such as heart size, baseline heart rate, sinus and AV function, and automatic innervation.

The poster can be downloaded at the end of the page.
