WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS EKG - ASYSTOLE


Hi guys,


Hope you had a good week. The series WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS EKG has come to a close with Asystole. When the cardiac monitor shows Asystole, the heart is at a standstill and the patient is in full cardiac arrest. Outcomes are not always successful after treatment and the family involved, may be forced to make critical decisions. I hope to have more helpful clinical situations for you soon. I hope you have been able to benefit in one way or another from simple explanations of some of the commonest EKG rhythms.
for Asystole go to page 40

Have a good week.
You may also enjoy watching the Clinical Videos called SESSIONS, in particular,
watch Sessions 16 through 18
