This is a series of recordings from an 80 year old man who had been treated with A/V nodal ablation and implantation of a ventricular pacemaker for persistent atrial flutter unresponsive to medication. He was totally dependent on the pacemaker. The first recording was more that a year before the last two, to which they can be compared. These recording where made after many hours of chest pain.
