The length of the re-entry circuit corresponds to the size of the right atrium, resulting in a fairly predictable atrial rate of around 300 bpm range 200-400 . Ventricular rate is determined by the AV conduction .Atrial flutter explained. Use our free lessons, drills, tutorials and quizzes. Designed for use by medical professionals..
