QRS and T waves not synchronized with P wave after a severe heart attack. How does this damage affect heart functions?

After a fairly severe heart attack , Robert Johnson’s ECG reveals a normal sinus rhythm , but only for the P wave. The QRS and T waves are no longer synchronous with the P wave, and the ventricular contraction corresponds to a junctional rhythm. What is the problem? What part of the heart is damaged? How does this damage affect how the heart functions?
