During atrial fibrillation (AF), the atrioventricular (AV) node is continuously bombarded with atrial impulses. The AV nodal properties, and in particular the refractoriness, play an important role in determining the ventricular response during AF. Therefore, it is very useful to determine the refractory period of the AV node non-invasively. The lower envelope of the Poincarè plot (a plot representing the dependence of i-th RR over (i-1)-th RR) has been shown to represent a measure of the… CONTINUE READING
