Nashville Pulse, But Not For Long

It's late, and I'm too tired to figure out exactly what dysrhythmia Nashville Pulse is using for their logo (came across it in the app store), but I think it is some kind of heart block.  Among the many problems with this heart rhythm, I'm a little concerned about the length of the pause immediately before this dying blip.  Also, this patient appears to have a U wave and an S-and-a-half wave, and is it just me or is that atrium not getting much loving?

Awesome blog. As for the logo...Looks like a weird RBB. That someone drew on a moving bus. While drunk.

The notched T looks like a fireman's helmet, the widow maker

I live there, and can tell y'all that the line's an attempt to incorporate the skyline of the city into a rhythm strip. "Nashville Pulse" - get it?
But hell yeah; if that showed up on one of my patients I'd get worried
