Disease Tachycardia, Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry

Name Tachycardia, Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry
Synonyms Atrioventricular Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia | Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry Tachycardia | AV Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia | Tachycardia, AV Nodal Reentrant
Definition Abnormally rapid heartbeats caused by reentry of atrial impulse into the dual (fast and slow) pathways of ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. The common type involves a blocked atrial impulse in the slow pathway which reenters the fast pathway in a retrograde direction and simultaneously conducts to the atria and the ventricles leading to rapid HEART RATE of 150-250 beats per minute.
