In second-degree AV block, some P waves conduct while others do not. This type is subdivided into Mobitz I (Wenckebach), Mobitz II, mal mo La Lm Fig Bloqueo AV de 2o grado Mobitz.

The upper panel initially shows sudden onset of a third-degree atrioventricular block with no ventricular escape rhythm followed by an atrioventricular junctional escape rhythm with narrow QRS complexes in the lower panel first 4 beats as well as two conducted P waves at the end of the lower panel.

AV block can mean delayed or completely blocked impulse conduction. Chronic symptomatic third- or second-degree Mobitz I or II atrioventricular block. This classification should not be used to describe the anatomical site of the block because the terms type I and type II only refer to a certain ECG conduction pattern.

Although SND is as mentioned above often associated with underlying heart disease and is primarily a disease of the elderly, it is also known to occur in fetuses, infants, children, and young adults without obvious heart disease or other contributing factors.

The first conducted P wave after the nonconducted P wave has the shortest PR interval of such a cycle and so the pause between the QRS complexes encompassing the nonconducted P wave will be less than twice the P-P interval.


Symptoms can be either permanent or intermittent and unpredictable, as with SND.

AV Block: 2nd degree, Mobitz II (Hay block)

This type of AV block has higher risk and poorer prognosis than previous ones, and can cause severe episodes of symptomatic bradycardia. The reader is referred to previous chapters addressing atrial tachycardia and atrial flutter 28 and atrial fibrillation A disorder characterized by an electrocardiographic finding of complete failure of atrial electrical impulse conduction to hloqueo ventricles.

In the emergency treatment of severe symptomatic bradyarrhythmias no escape rhythm transcutaneous stimulation may be applied. Possible electrocardiographic manifestations are:. Further information can be obtained from the recently published book, Clinical Arrhythmology, by Bllqueo Bayes de Luna.

Electrophysiologic studies are usually not required in patients with symptomatic bradyarrhythmias such as high grade or complete AV block or SND because the information given by the surface ECG bloquel most often sufficient.

Bundle branch block especially LBBB and bifascicular block are generally associated with a higher mortality compared to sex- and age-matched control persons, but some conditions ac as isolated right bundle branch block are considered to be benign. In patients with intermittent AV block, Holter ECG and exercise testing are important to establish a correlation between symptoms and rhythm. Pharmacologic therapy is not effective in SND.

Impulses are then conducted from the His bundle to the right and left bundle.

A long rhythm strip or 24 hours Holter monitor may help to determine the type of block. Advance Second degree AV block: The natural course of SND can be highly variable and is often unpredictable.

Bradyarrhythmias and Conduction Blocks

Atrioventricular block expected to resolve. The first conducted P ,obitz after the nonconducted P wave has the shortest PR interval ms. A proper diagnosis including a symptom-rhythm correlation is extremely important and is generally established by noninvasive diagnostic studies lead electrocardiogram, Holter electrocardiogram, exercise testing, event recorder, implantable loop recorder.


Bradyarrhythmias and conduction blocks are a common clinical finding and may be a physiologic reaction for example in healthy, athletic persons as well as a pathologic condition. The annual incidence of progression to advanced or complete AV block and so the risk of death from bradyarrhythmia is low. Symptomatic SND where symptoms can reliably be attributed to no essential medication.

AV Block: 2nd degree, Mobitz II (Hay block) • LITFL

Furthermore bradyarrhythmias can be a normal physiologic reaction under certain circumstances. This is the result of intermittent moobitz of atrial electrical impulse conduction through the atrioventricular AV node to the ventricles.

Many of these patients are particularly symptomatic during exercise because the PR interval does not shorten appropriately as the R-R interval decreases. Every P wave is conducted with a constant PR interval. The QRS complex of the first conducted P wave is narrow and recurs in a similar pattern. Pauses frequently occur in bradycardia-tachycardia syndrome Figure 1 when an atrial tachyarrhythmia spontaneously terminates and sinus node recovery time is prolonged.

However, the majority of chronic bundle branch block is idiopathic and seems to be associated with fibrosis of the conduction system, though only a few studies have investigated the underlying pathophysiology.
