I have been in nursing for 34 years and have worked in a variety of settings including hospice, long term care, med-surg, supervision, cath lab, ER, special procedures and critical care. I enjoy working as a float nurse because it gives me a variety of clinical experiences. I am also a CPR, ACLS, and PALS instructor at our local hospital.

On this page a dropped PAC is seen following the 5th complex. If an impulse is initiated during the phase of relative refractory period an impulse may or may not produce a contraction. Generally, it takes a stronger than normal impulse to initiate a contraction.
