Re-entry is not one specific diagnosis. Rather, it is a mechanism that can give rise to many different abnormal rhythms.
Re-entry is a little bit complicated to describe using only words, so please watch the video which will hopefully explain how it all works.
Re-entry mechanisms are responsible for:
- atrial fibrillation
- atrial flutter
- atrial tachycardia
- AVNRT (AV node re-entry tachycardia)
- AVRT (atrio-ventricular re-entry tachycardia)
- ventricular tachycardia
