Auricular flutter with a ventricular rate of 70 to 160 a minute is a common condition and is met with, according to McMillan and Bellet,1 once in every 80 cases of heart disease or of suspected heart disease; but auricular flutter with ventricular rates above 200 are quite rare. The rate of auricular contractions in flutter ranges from 220 to 4002 or over, in untreated cases, while the ventricular response is usually slower. The auriculo-ventricular ratio is 2 : 1, 3 : 1, or 4 : 1; rarely it may be 6 : 1 or 8 : 1 as
