The [T.sub.a] wave voltage of an inverted or retrograde P wave is always larger than that of a sinus P wave [3].
In 66% of AVNRTs, the P wave is hidden within the QRS complex; (29) in 30%, a retrograde P wave closely follows the QRS complex, creating a "pseudo-S" wave; and 4% of the time, the P wave precedes the QRS complex.
In AVRT, a retrograde P wave follows the QRS complex.
(5) Second, the very short interval from the beginning of each QRS to the beginning of the retrograde P wave (0.07 seconds) and the retrograde P wave's having a pseudo r' deflection in lead [V.sub.1] and a pseudo S-wave configuration in the inferior leads strongly favor A-V nodal reentrant tachycardia over A-V reciprocating tachycardia utilizing a bypass tract.
