Answers to the current quiz:
C) Mobitz type II
For patients with 2:1 AV block in whom the distinction between Mobitz type I and Mobitz type II second degree AV block cannot be made using the surface ECG alone, a long rhythm strip should be obtained or a previous ECG examined to try to find evidence of constant PR intervals preceding a non-conducted P wave, as well as to identify non-conducted P waves in a pattern other than 2:1 (eg, 3:2, 4:3, etc) that would suggest Mobitz type I second degree AV block.
Additionally, carotid sinus massage may be performed, or atropine intravenous administered, to help distinguish the level of AV block.
E) No further information is required
C) Permanent Pacemaker. Class 1 indication
