- Second degree heart block with a P:QRS ratio of 3:1 or higher, producing an extremely slow ventricular rate.
- Unlike 3rd degree heart block there is still some relationship between the P waves and the QRS complexes.
- High-grade AV block may result from either Mobitz I or Mobitz II AV block.
- High-grade AV block (4:1 conduction ratio).
- Atrial rate is approximately 140 bpm.
- Ventricular rate is approximately 35 bpm.
- Broad QRS complexes suggest that this may be due to Mobitz II block (see “fixed ratio blocks” for a discussion of this concept).
