    • ECTOPIC PACEMAKERS often arise from cells in close proximity to necrotic/apoptotic myocytes

      • Irritable myocytes that are adjacent to area of injury, they develop a rhythm of depolarization that is different than the SA node

  • The predominant alteration in HR and rhythm are an increased rate and an erratic rhythm (TACHYARRHYTHMIAS)

  • Resulting from diseases of sinus node, conducting fibers - the intra-atrial conduction pathways, AV node, common bundle, R and L bundle branches, purkinje fibers
