Pacing in ED – permanent and temporary

Pacing in ED is not technically difficult. Below is a presentation from today’s teaching.

The decision to commence pacing is challenging and can be a cause for hesitation.

Failure of chronotropic therapy and an inadequately perfusing rhythm e.g.bradycardia, complete heart block should prompt initiation of treatment.

Transvenous pacing is the gold-standard but requires a skill set not always available.

Follow the link to a power point presentation from today’s teaching with an overview of pacemakers and pacing in the ED. At the end are links which I have included below for convenience – or if you want more detail. Send in your comments as usual.
