Correlations among the frequencies of atrial activity on the surface electrocardiogram, intracardiac atrial electrograms, and the atrial effective refractory period in patients with atrial fibrillation

Journal of Electrocardiology, 05/14/2012

In atrial fibrillation, the frequency of atrial depolarization measured from the surface ECG is highly correlated with intracardiac atrial frequency. However, the correlation between the frequency of surface atrial activity and atrial refractoriness, although significant, is not strong.
