Answer

The diagnosis and management of any cardiac dysrhythmia may first be accomplished by analysis of 12-lead ECG and rhythm strips and their relationship to the clinical setting. Recognizing dysrhythmias on 12-lead ECG findings requires a detailed knowledge of atrial and ventricular activation patterns and deductions related to the mechanisms of atrioventricular (AV) conduction.
