Accelerated junctional rhythm

An accelerated junctional rhythm (60-100 bpm) is an arrhythmia that is faster than a normal junctional escape (40-60 bpm) but not as fast as junctional tachycardia (>100 bpm). The QRS complexes can be narrow, unless there are further conduction problems downstream in the ventricles.
