By increasing vagal tone, there is slowing of conduction in the atrioventricular (AV) node, resulting in the termination of AV nodal dependent reentrant tachycardias like AVNRT and AVRT which constitutes the majority of regular narrow complex tachycardia.
The initial evaluation of every tachycardia should begin with determining the width of the QRS interval, thus separating narrow complex (<0.12 s) from wide complex tachycardias (WCT).
