To understand what can slow your heart's normal rhythm too much, consider that each heartbeat depends on electrical signals traveling first from the heart's own natural pacemaker (the sinus node) through the atria, zipping across the electrical bridge (called the atrioventricular node) between the upper and lower parts of the heart and ending up in the ventricles.
Saxitoxin blocks sodium channels in nerve and muscle, which arrests impulse conduction and can suppress atrioventricular node conduction.
Women who are positive for anti-SSA/Ro and anti-SSB/La autoantibodies have a baseline 2% chance that fibrosis of the atrioventricular node and heart block will develop in the fetus, but that risk increases 10-fold if they have had a previous child with either heart block or a facial rash, she said.
Once these specialized conduction tissues of the SA node send out the impulse, it only takes 0.08 seconds for the impulse to travel through the atria making them contract and then the impulse goes to the next major electrical point of the heart called the atrioventricular node (AV node).

For patients whom drugs do not help, another option is to destroy the atrioventricular node, which transmits electrical signals from the atria to the ventricles.
SVT is defined as "any abnormally rapid dysrhythmia that originates above the ventricles, that is, any portion of the atrium including the sinoatrial node, the atrioventricular node, or within the bundle of His proximal to its bifurcation" (Ziegler, 1994, p.
