In the normal heart, the first impulse that starts the flow of electrical current through the heart comes from the SA node. The impulse travels through the atria by way of the intraatrial pathways and to the AV node by means of the internodal pathways. If you look microscopically at the cells along these pathways, you would not see any physical difference between them and the cells in other areas of the atria, so researchers have questioned whether they actually exist. However, current electrophysiologic studies support the concept that these pathways do exist, if only as down the left and right bundle branches and then to the Purkinje fibers 5 6 C H A P T E R 1 w w w.

You now can see that graph paper can be used to measure and . voltage; time CARDIAC CYCLE 24. As you know, the heart has four chambers. The upper two are the atria and the lower two are the ventricles. In most cases the atria function as a team and contract together, and the ventricles also operate as a single unit. So for nearly all of our discussions we will consider the atria as a single unit and the ventricles as a single unit, even though we realize that they are actually the separate chambers that make up the heart.

The S wave is more difficult. Between the S wave and the T wave is a section called the ST segment. 20 delay; AV node Yes. 20 second. 27 28 C H A P T E R 2 w w w. b r a d y b o o k s . c o m configuration. So you must look for some clue that indicates to you where the S wave stops and the wave begins. If such an indication is present, it will usually be a very small notch or other movement suggesting an alteration of electrical flow. At any rate, this should be the outside measurement of the QRS complex.
