ECG Quest > Blocks > AV Blocks

AV Blocks

AV blocks affect conduction through the AV node. If the block is first degree, the node works slowly but each impulse gets through eventually. If the block is second degree, only some of the impulses get through. If the block is third degree (complete), none of the impulses get through the node and out to the ventricles.
