Ventricular pacing induces antegrade atrioventricular sustains because all atrial events are retrograde P (AV) conduction block waves, and there is no captured P wave to gener- ate antegrade conducted QRS complex. Option D is false because there is no evidence of antegrade AV block. As shown in the figure, the episode begins with a premature atrial complex (*) sensed during postventricular atrial refractory period (350 ms), thus not inhibiting subsequent A pacing output. The atrial pacing output occurs determined by the lower rate limit (750 ms after previous atrial pace output). The conducted QRS from the premature atrial complex, however, incidentally
