Isorhythmic dissociation

Isorhythmic dissociation is an uncommon arrhythmia where there are separate rhythms originating from the SA node / atria and AV node /ventricles. These two rhythms coincidentally occur at the same rate so they appear synchronised, but really each is occurring within the refractory period of the other.
