Introduction:

The electrocardiogram (ECG) is a graph that shows a patient’s heart rate in the form of wave components, such as P, Q, R, S, T, and U. It records the electric signals of the heart using the electrodes placed on the chest of the patient. The doctors interpret the ECG through a systemic approach.

Explanation

Atrial flutter is a condition where there is an abnormal heart rate in the upper atria chambers of the heart. This condition is also called arrhythmia and is often asymptomatic. It is similar to the condition of atrial fibrillation.

QRS duration: The duration of the QRS complex is between 0.40 and 0.10 seconds.

QT duration: It cannot be determined due to irregular signals.

Ventricular rate and rhythm: The ventricular rate is between 60 and 100 bpm per minute...
