  18. ECG #1 is definately WPW with a short PRI and delta wave.

    ECG #2 however is a 2:1 Atria Flutter in which the flutter waves are clearly seen in the precordial leads of V2 - V6. this would explain the symptoms of C/P, SOB, dizziness and palpitations. With such a rapid heart rate, the heart has a shorter time to preload during diastole, thus reducing CO.
