That implies the atria are depolarizing more often than the ventricles. This could result from a 2:1 heart block, particularly if the P waves are regular and in a consistent relationship to the QRS. If the P waves "march out" independently of the QRS complexes, there could be complete heart block with a junctional or ventricular escape rhythm.
