The Unusual Wenckebach Series

February 17, 2021

Dr Harry Mond revisits the fundamental footprints of Wenckebach sequences through a series of unusual cases that explore AV, Sino-atrial and Wenckebach without a pause!

1. Wenckebach without a pause!

The surprising trace that made even the most experienced cardiologists take pause. In this case of a ‘rebel without a pause’, Medical Director Dr Harry Mond examines Wenckebach sequences and the confusion with complete heart block that can sometimes occur. Read More.

2. Is this Wenckebach?

Reversed Wenckebach occurs when there is sequential shortening of the PR interval, and can require a permanent pacemaker in certain instances. In this latest case study, we take a look at examples of reversed Wenckebach, and how to recognise the rare ECG finding. Read more.

3. Sino-atrial Wenckebach

With a pause about twice the cycle length of the R to R intervals and no P, QRS or T waves, this case tackles one of the most difficult explanations in ECG interpretation and demands a revisit to the fundamentals or “footprints” of Wenckebach AV. Read more.

4. Unusual AV Wenckebach

Assoc Prof Harry Mond identifies a plethora of insights that come with studying Wenckebach sequences. This week, a definitely not boring look into atrioventricular (AV) and non-AV types, and how it’s all in the timing! Read more.
