The Electrocardiographic Footprints of Wenckebach Block

With an increased use of ambulatory Holter monitoring, Wenckebach atrioventricular sequences have been revealed to occur in 4–6% of all traces. In this manuscript Dr Harry Mond revisits Wenckebach atrioventricular block, the typical features of which only occur in about 15% of cases, with the remainder atypical. Considered a complex group and not always obvious, he shows by understanding the sequence footprints, clues are available in interpreting tracing with periodic pauses.
