Therefore, the factors surrounding the development of collateral circulation are of great signiﬁcance in the study and treatment of coronary artery disease. 13A The end of the right coronary artery at the back of the heart does not connect to the end of the left anterior descending artery at the front of the heart. 13B RCA ᭤ ᭤ 14 LAD LAD 15 Anatomy Review of the Human Heart Blood Supply to the Myocardium The coronary arteries lie on the outermost layer of the heart, or epicardium, and penetrate in toward the myocardium.
Ignoring the heart rate on an EKG is the single most common mistake in learning to read an EKG! 1 33 34 Chapter 4 Measurement of the Heart Rate The most accurate way to measure heart rate is by measuring the R-R interval. The R-R interval is the distance from one R wave to the next R wave. When measuring the R-R interval, take the beginning of one QRS complex, and count the number of “little boxes” up to the beginning of the next QRS complex. Divide this number into 1500. This method of calculating the heart rate is valid if the heart rate is regular.
Sinus rhythms, regardless of rate, are typically regular. When the heart rate varies by more than 10%, the rhythm is called sinus arrhythmia. 5 12 boxes 1500/12 = 125 Heart rate = 125 beats/minute Sinus Tachycardia Chapter 4 The Sinus Node: Master and Servant The sinus node normally sets and controls the rate of depolarization and contraction of the rest of the heart. In this sense, the sinus node is the master of the heart. Yet, the sinus node is itself under the control of two parts of the nervous system – the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
