Sinus Rhythm is the rhythm category when each of the five steps of rhythm analysis are “normal”.
Normal sinus rhythm is indicated by a heart rate in the normal range of 60-100 beats per minute with a steady rate, aside from variations due to respiration. P waves should be positive and within a normal amplitude (< 2.5mm at lead II and III).
