Atrial flutter would have a rate of over 250-350 per minute with flutter waves. A wide QRS or RVR indicates aberrant ventricular conduction during the arrhythmia. You then converted to either sinus tachycardia or every other P wave was blocked. This then reverted to NSR. Any more episodes like that would warrant an evaluation & advice by a cardiologist. Appropriate testing will be ordered.
