The Bix Rule

A term was coined called the "Bix Rule", in honor of a Viennese cardiologist who had an encyclopedic knowledge of arrhythmia, which states that if you are dealing with a supraventricular tachycardia, in which visible P wave is situated midway between ventricular complexes, there is a probability that there is a P wave lurking within the QRS complexes. Thus, there can be an atrial tachycardia or atrial flutter with 2:1 AV conduction.


  1. Thanks for vising the blog. There is no therapy for "Bix Rule". It was a phenomenon description. This 2:1 could be AT or AFL (slow). So, the treatment is going into that direction.

  2. I appreciate the time to write this post
