    Correct Answer
    C. Sinus tachycardia
    Explanation
    The given rhythm strip is identified as sinus tachycardia. Sinus tachycardia is characterized by a regular rhythm with a heart rate greater than 100 beats per minute. In this strip, the P waves are present and upright, indicating the activation of the atria. The QRS complexes are also normal, suggesting that the electrical impulses are conducted properly through the ventricles. Therefore, based on the regular rhythm, elevated heart rate, and normal P waves and QRS complexes, the correct identification is sinus tachycardia.

      V tach

    Correct Answer
    A. Normal sinus rhythm with pjc's
    Explanation
    The given rhythm strip is classified as "normal sinus rhythm with pjc's." This means that the electrical activity of the heart is normal, with a regular rhythm originating from the sinus node. However, there are also premature junctional contractions (PJC's) present, which are early contractions originating from the atrioventricular (AV) junction instead of the sinus node. These PJC's can be seen as abnormal beats interrupting the regular sinus rhythm. Overall, the rhythm strip shows a normal sinus rhythm with the addition of premature junctional contractions.

    • D.

      V tach

    Correct Answer
    A. 3rd degree av block
    Explanation
    The given rhythm strip is a 3rd degree AV block because there is a complete dissociation between the atria and ventricles. In this condition, the atria and ventricles beat independently of each other, resulting in a slower ventricular rate and a regular P-P interval that is not related to the QRS complexes. This is evident in the strip where the P waves and QRS complexes are not in a consistent pattern and there is no relationship between them.

    • D.

      Normal sinus rhythm

    Correct Answer
    B. 2nd degree type 2 block
    Explanation
    The given rhythm strip is most likely a 2nd degree type 2 block. This can be inferred from the presence of dropped QRS complexes, which indicates intermittent conduction block at the level of the AV node or bundle of His. In a 2nd degree type 2 block, there is a fixed ratio of conducted to blocked P waves, resulting in a regular pattern of dropped beats. This is different from a 3rd degree block, where there is complete dissociation between the atria and ventricles, and from an accelerated idioventricular rhythm, which typically has a slower rate and wide QRS complexes. Normal sinus rhythm would not exhibit dropped beats.
