independent beating of the left and right atria, each with normal rhythm or with various combinations of normal rhythm, atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation.
atrioventricular dissociation
independent pacemakers in the atria and ventricles.
dissociation constant
the tendency of a solute to dissociate in solution.
hepatocyte dissociation
