Atrioventricular Node

The atrioventricular node is located in the base of the atrial septum, at the junction between the atria and ventricles, and is the sole route for conduction of pulses from the atria to the ventricles. The atrioventricular node perceives the initial pulse from the sinoatrial node and modulates it by slowing the impulse as it passes to the ventricular myocardium.
