A regular, biphasic atrial pulse contour on the bedside monitor is suggestive of AV synchrony, whereas a monophasic pulse contour, marked irregularity or the presence of atrial cannon waves provides evidence for a lack of appropriate AV synchrony.
Without pacing, cardiac output is impaired by low heart rates and loss of AV synchrony.
As a result, these patients may enjoy the physiologic advantage of AV synchrony with minimal hardware.
