This rhythm is being debated currently.
Honestly is looks like sinus rythm with a notched p wave and a bundle branch block but it's been awhile since I studied/watched rhythms when I was a monitor tech about five years ago so I'm a bit rusty! Lead II from what I remember is the tell tell whether or not the p wave is positive or negative so that the lead I used to look at to rule out junctional. So what's the debate came up with so far?
PR = normal = sinus rhythm
QRS = 0.08 (could be 0.10, but am calling it 0.08) = normal.
Need to see AVR, AVF, AVL.
Are the 3 at the bottom leads I, II, III?
What's the rate?. I was wondering if this could be a hidden Atrial flutter? I have seen them look lile this a few times. Also, look at the p wave morphology.
I am seeing sinus rhythm as the underlying rhythm. I am also seeing a possible early stage MI in lead V4, and am assuming that what appears to me as a left bundle branch block in lead VI is a new finding. In lead V3 I am seeing what looks to me like an early repolarization.
Could it be a F wave on a t wave making look like STE? Flutter does break the isoelectric line?

PR int = 0.12 normal
QRS = 0.12 delayed conduction, BBB
Rate approx 110
There are no "F" waves present.
Sinus Tach with BBB.
I'm not saying I'm right about the flutter, but if you zoom in really close, you can see extra p's in almost every lead. Also, there are a lot of sharp points throughout and the bottom lead looks like it a lot to me
I don't see any extra p's but I do see some artifact in some areas that could be mistook though. Flutter waves tend to be pretty sawtooth waves that will not change in polorization regardless of which lead you're looking at. (Or they will all be in the same direction anyways)

Actually, they can be different directions in different leads

I don't see any extra Ps either. QRS looks .08-.09 to me, so no BBB. If the P is inverted, then I'd call this junctional. I don't see it as notched.
I think people are reading way into this... I see SR...
