AV blocks are among the most confusing arrhythmias encountered in clinical practice. This class presents an updated classification system for AV blocks and discusses in detail the following AV blocks:
- First Degree
- Second Degree, Type I

Ladder diagrams are used to illustrate rhythm strips, and instructions for constructing ladder diagrams and using them as a teaching aid are presented.
The four causes of AV dissociation are presented along with examples of each.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
