Get Heart Electrical Pathway Diagram Images. Printed red electrical circuit board heart. The electrical impulse travels from the sinus node to the atrioventricular node (also called av node).
The extra pathway is present at birth and fairly rare. Electrical conduction pathway of the heart. The electrical stimulus travels down through the conduction pathways and causes the heart's ventricles to contract and pump out blood.
An extra electrical pathway between your heart's upper and lower chambers causes a rapid heartbeat.
The electrical impulses from the sinus node contract the atria and move down to the atrioventricular (av) node and then to the ventricles. Students will notice the cardiovascular. The electrical axis reflects the average direction of ventricular depolarization. Webmd's heart anatomy page provides a detailed image of the heart and provides information on heart conditions, tests, and treatments.
