A report on Atrioventricular node, Arrhythmia and AV nodal reentrant tachycardia
AVNRT occurs when a reentrant circuit forms within or just next to the atrioventricular node.- AV nodal reentrant tachycardia
This also protects the ventricles from excessively fast rate response to atrial arrhythmias (see below).- Atrioventricular node
Atrioventricular nodal re-entry tachycardia.- Atrioventricular node
AV nodal reentrant tachycardia- Arrhythmia
The impulse initially causes both atria to contract, then activates the atrioventricular node (AV node), which is normally the only electrical connection between the atria and the ventricles (main pumping chambers).- Arrhythmia

Atrial fibrillation (AF or A-fib) is an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atrial chambers of the heart.
These disorganized waves conduct intermittently through the atrioventricular node, leading to irregular activation of the ventricles that generate the heartbeat.
Other inherited heart conditions associated with the development of atrial fibrillation in children include Brugada syndrome, short QT syndrome, Wolff Parkinson White syndrome, and other forms of supraventricular tachycardia (e.g., AV nodal reentrant tachycardia).
