Synopsis

A supraventricular cardiac arrhythmia due to a reentrant pathway within the atrioventricular (AV) node resulting in a regular tachycardia. Common features include a narrow QRS complex (although wide QRS may be present if aberrant conduction is present), inverted P waves, and a short RP interval. Clinical presentation is generally intermittent palpitations, although syncope, shortness of breath, and chest discomfort may also be present.
