    Correct Answer
    B. Atrial fibrillation
    Explanation
    The given answer is atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is a cardiac arrhythmia characterized by rapid and irregular electrical activity in the atria of the heart. This results in an irregular and often rapid ventricular response. In an ECG rhythm strip, atrial fibrillation is typically identified by the absence of distinct P waves and the presence of irregularly spaced QRS complexes. This is different from ventricular fibrillation, which is a chaotic and disorganized rhythm that results in no discernible cardiac output. Sinus bradycardia is a regular but slow heart rhythm, while asystole is the absence of any electrical activity in the heart.

    • B.

      Normal sinus rhythm

    • C.

      Sinus bradycardia

    • D.

      Sinus arrythmia

    Correct Answer
    A. Sinus arhythmia with non conducted pac
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "sinus arrhythmia with non-conducted PAC." Sinus arrhythmia refers to an irregularity in the normal rhythm of the heart, where the heart rate varies with respiration. Non-conducted PAC (premature atrial contraction) means that an extra heartbeat originates from the atria but fails to conduct to the ventricles, resulting in a pause in the rhythm. This combination of sinus arrhythmia and non-conducted PAC is seen in the given rhythm strip.

    Correct Answer
    A. Sinus tachycardia
    Explanation
    The given rhythm strip is identified as sinus tachycardia because it shows a regular rhythm with a heart rate greater than 100 beats per minute. Sinus tachycardia occurs when the heart's natural pacemaker (sinus node) sends electrical signals at a faster rate than normal. This can be caused by various factors such as exercise, stress, fever, or certain medications. The strip does not exhibit any abnormal or irregular patterns that would suggest other arrhythmias like SVT (supraventricular tachycardia) or V-tach (ventricular tachycardia). Therefore, the correct answer is sinus tachycardia.

      Wandering atrial pacemaker

    • D.

      Sinus tachycardia

    Correct Answer
    C. Wandering atrial pacemaker
    Explanation
    A wandering atrial pacemaker refers to a rhythm in which the pacemaker site in the atria shifts between different locations, resulting in variations in the P wave morphology. This can be seen on an ECG strip as irregular P wave shapes and varying PR intervals. It is important to note that the heart rate in a wandering atrial pacemaker is usually within the normal range (60-100 bpm).

      Sinus arrhythmia

    Correct Answer
    C. Sinus bradycardia
    Explanation
    The given answer, sinus bradycardia, is correct because the rhythm strip shows a regular sinus rhythm with a heart rate less than 60 beats per minute. Sinus bradycardia is characterized by a slow heart rate originating from the sinus node. It is considered normal in some individuals, such as athletes, but can also be caused by certain medications, heart diseases, or vagal stimulation. In this case, the rhythm strip displays a slow and regular rhythm, indicating sinus bradycardia.

    Correct Answer
    A. Accelerated idioventricular rhythm
    Explanation
    An accelerated idioventricular rhythm is a regular rhythm originating from the ventricles with a rate between 40-100 beats per minute. It is considered accelerated when the rate exceeds the normal sinus rate. This rhythm strip is likely showing an accelerated idioventricular rhythm because it displays a regular rhythm with a rate that is faster than sinus bradycardia but slower than ventricular tachycardia.

    • D.

      Normal sinus rhythm with sinus pause

    Correct Answer
    B. 1st degree av block
    Explanation
    The given rhythm strip is most likely showing 1st degree AV block. This can be determined by analyzing the PR interval, which appears prolonged and consistent throughout the strip. In 1st degree AV block, there is a delay in the conduction of electrical signals between the atria and ventricles, resulting in a prolonged PR interval. The other options, such as sinus bradycardia, normal sinus rhythm, or sinus pause, do not accurately describe the rhythm strip based on the given information.

    • B.

      Junctional rhythm

    • C.

      Accelerated junctional rhythm

    • D.

      Atrial fibrillation

    Correct Answer
    C. Accelerated junctional rhythm
    Explanation
    An accelerated junctional rhythm is characterized by a regular rhythm with a heart rate between 60 and 100 beats per minute. It originates from the AV junction and does not involve the atria. In this rhythm strip, there is a regular rhythm with a heart rate of approximately 70 beats per minute, indicating an accelerated junctional rhythm. Atrial fibrillation is characterized by an irregularly irregular rhythm, which is not present in this strip. Therefore, the correct answer is accelerated junctional rhythm.

    Correct Answer
    B. Idioventricular rhythm
    Explanation
    An idioventricular rhythm is a slow heart rhythm that originates in the ventricles, the lower chambers of the heart. It is characterized by a wide QRS complex and a slow heart rate, typically between 20-40 beats per minute. In this rhythm strip, the QRS complexes are wide and there is no discernible P wave, indicating that the rhythm is originating in the ventricles rather than the atria. This is consistent with an idioventricular rhythm.

    Correct Answer
    B. Normal sinus rhythm with sinus pauses
    Explanation
    The given rhythm strip is classified as "normal sinus rhythm with sinus pauses" because the underlying rhythm shows a regular sinus rhythm with a consistent P wave preceding each QRS complex. However, there are occasional pauses in the rhythm, indicated by the absence of P waves and QRS complexes. These pauses are longer than normal sinus pauses, suggesting the presence of sinus node dysfunction. Therefore, the correct answer is "normal sinus rhythm with sinus pauses."

    • D.

      Third degree av block

    Correct Answer
    A. Second degree type 1 av block
    Explanation
    This rhythm strip is identified as a second-degree type 1 AV block because there is a progressive prolongation of the PR interval until a QRS complex is dropped. This is also known as Wenckebach phenomenon. In this type of AV block, there is a delay in the conduction of electrical signals from the atria to the ventricles, resulting in a dropped QRS complex. This can be seen as a repeating pattern of PR interval lengthening until a QRS complex is missed.

    • D.

      First degree av block

    Correct Answer
    A. Third degree av block
    Explanation
    The given rhythm strip is classified as third-degree AV block because there is a complete dissociation between the atria and ventricles. This is evident from the regular P waves that are not followed by QRS complexes. The atria and ventricles are beating independently, with the atrial rate being faster than the ventricular rate. This is a serious condition that often requires immediate medical intervention.

    A. Sinus arrythmia
    Explanation
    The correct answer is sinus arrhythmia. Sinus arrhythmia is a normal variation in the heart rate that occurs with breathing. It is characterized by irregularity in the R-R intervals, with the heart rate increasing during inspiration and decreasing during expiration. This can be observed on an ECG as slight variations in the distance between consecutive R waves. Sinus arrhythmia is typically benign and does not require treatment unless it is associated with symptoms or underlying heart disease.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is accelerated idioventricular rhythm. This rhythm strip shows a wide QRS complex with a rate between 60-100 beats per minute. The QRS complexes are regular and there is no evidence of atrial activity. This is characteristic of an accelerated idioventricular rhythm, which occurs when the ventricles take over as the primary pacemaker of the heart due to a malfunction in the normal conduction system. It is often seen in the setting of acute myocardial infarction or during reperfusion therapy.

      Second degree type 2

    Correct Answer
    A. Junctional rhythm
    Explanation
    The given rhythm strip is identified as a junctional rhythm based on the absence of P waves preceding the QRS complex. In a junctional rhythm, the electrical impulses originate from the AV junction instead of the sinus node. This results in a narrow QRS complex and a regular rhythm. The absence of P waves indicates that the impulse is not originating from the atria. Therefore, based on the characteristics observed in the rhythm strip, the correct answer is junctional rhythm.
