This is a rhythm strip recorded from a man attending the pacemaker follow-up clinic. The Patient had been implanted with a ventricular pacemaker one week before. In about the middle of the tracing a magnet was placed over the pacemaker. Why are there so many spikes on the first half of the tracing?
