abstract

  • In the presence of intact AV conduction, the V-A-V response to PVARP extension is specific to atrial (or sinus) tachycardia, whereas the V-A-A-Vs response is specific to PMT. Recognizing the difference between the two forms of pacemaker-facilitated tachycardias has important implications for pacemaker programming.
