(1) Typical AFl is a stable macro reentrant arrhythmia involving clockwise or counterclockwise rotation of the wavefront around the tricuspid valve annulus.
Atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is the most common of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) in adults6,7.
Furthermore, some special critical behaviors such as the reentrant phase transition (RPT), the triple critical point, the isolated critical point, and even the "critical curve" for several black holes have been explored [26-35].
In the 4 : 1 planar contraction flow, the fluid flows into the narrower channel from the wider channel with a simple shear flow far from the contraction region, a pure elongation flow along the central axis, a complex strong shear flow near the wall, and a mixture of shear and elongation flows near the reentrant corners.
She received an EPS and orthodromic atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia was induced, with the earliest retrograde atrial activation recorded at the distal coronary sinus electrode, which distributed in an eccentric pattern.
Therefore, all girth welds and the reentrant surface of the drain hole were free of localized corrosion.
WPW is best known for its association with supraventricular tachycardias which are usually initiated by an atrial premature complex, but can be initiated by ventricular premature complexes.The ensuing atrioventricular reciprocating tachycardia has a reentrant circuit usually characterized by so-called orthdromic conduction down the atrioventricular node, His bundle, and bundle branches, i.e., the normal conduction pathways, with conduction back to the atria via the accessory pathway, and the QRS complex is usually narrow unless the patient has a coexisting bundle branch block.
Fabrication of auxetic structural scaffolds can be achieved by transforming the cell structure from a convex polyhedral shape to a concave or reentrant shape in which cell ribs protrude inward.
Here we proposed a wireless passive pressure sensor composed of a reentrant cavity with an aperture and a rectangular microstrip patch antenna which can operate properly up to 300[degrees] C.
