Changing PR interval

changing PR interval is different for each beat. Most often it progressively gets longer and longer, then there is a dropped beat before it starts again. This is usually caused by a second degree conduction block (or delay) at the AV node, called Wenckebach. If the PR interval is constantly changing without evidence of progressively lengthening, there may be a complete AV block.eg transient PR prolongation after retrograde impulse from PVC, or RP interval with 2 alternative AV nodal pathways…
