superior vena cava
The coronary sinus, which opens into the right atrium, allows return from which layer of the heart?
This part of the conduction system of the heart is located at the superior portion of the inter ventricular septum and has the ability to function as a pacemaker with an intrinsic firing rate of 40-60 beats per minute.
bundle of his
This represent the time it take for electrical impulses to travel from the atria to the AV node, bundle of his, bundle branches and to the purkinje fibers.
Which is an indication of stress testing?
