Some people prefer to think of the pacemaker as adding a hysteresis interval to the automatic interval rather than there being two different rates. Hysteresis is useful in patients with ventricular pacemakers and sinus rhythm who have infrequent pacing needs. It may also be useful when a ventricular pacemaker causes symptoms in a patient during pacing (see section on pacemaker syndrome in chapter 11). Fig. 8. AAT Pacing. The atrium is paced and sensed. An intrinsic beat triggers an immediate output from the pacemaker.

This is also referred to as multiblock as higher degrees of block are possible. In this situation the patient’s ventricular rate increases with the atrial rate until the URL is reached. Once the patient’s atrial rate exceeds the URL every other P-wave will fall into the PVARP and is thus not sensed. 1, 2:1 block then occurs and the patient’s ventricular rate falls abruptly, often with significant symptoms. As the patient’s atrial rate slows below the URL, the pacemaker will resume tracking the atrium and pace the ventricle 1:1 again.

These are attached by a wire to a temporary pacemaker or other stimulation source. Each time the pacemaker senses one of these external stimuli it will immediately pace the heart. This technique can be used to overdrive pace monomorphic ventricular tachycardia or to perform Handbook of Cardiac Pacing, by Charles J. Love. © 1998 Landes Bioscience 3 26 Handbook of Cardiac Pacing Fig. 1. Automatic interval. This is the period of time from one paced beat to the next paced beat. In this example, the automatic interval is 1000 msec (or 60 beats per minute).
