Ventricular escape

A ventricular escape is an arrhythmia that is very slow (30-45 bpm), regular and wide. It occurs when there is no faster pacemaker to take over setting the rhythm. It is also known as idioventricular rhythm. If it is abnormally fast, it is known as AIVR (60-120 bpm) or VT (>100 bpm).
