1.Changing (spindling) QRS wave form like VT
5.treatment - chest compressions, epinephrine, atropine,
8.saw tooth pattern on monitor
9.used to treat the
12.p wave normal, PR - no consistent relation to QRS, more P's than QRS's
13.call 222 to activate, get a second opinion, helps prevent need to call 299
18.node responsible for stimuli resulting in atrial depolarization (addrv)
20.can be culprit of ugly rhythms - monitor and replace to correct, done with labs
21.hallmark is
22.medication used for a slow atrial rhythm
23.Degree, delay in conduction from below the AV node, has 2 types
24.A resource available from off site, all ICU nurses, can call help, look up info etc.
25.slow....normal in athletes and during sleep, atrial rate < 60
27.dial 299 for_________ ________
28.electrical treatment of STABLE VT, a fib rvr (rapid ventricular response), light sedation required
29.rapid rate prohibits cardiac filling or coronary artery perfusion. Single ventricular ectopic focus at fast rate, with smooth wave
32.Consider pacemaker!
34.basic care, all staff are required to have, (abbrv)
2._ to 8 breaths per minute recommended per AHA in resucitation effort
3.a rhythm on the monitor, but without conduction
4.abbreviated term for electrical device, can be permanent or temporary
6.electrical stiumui arising from bundle of His, ventricular rate > 100
7.a type II block with delaly in conduction from atria to ventricle, a progressive prolongation of the PRI, until AV does not conduct, repatitive
10.Where you document a resucitation, which once signed constitues physician orders.
11.one of the blocks, can be a I or II
14.what is done for pulseless VT/VF
15.need established for adequate ventilation
16.advanced level of care, a certification required for all RNs here at Clarian
17.assess this by checking for pulse, mental status, and urine output
19.medication used for rate control, atrial or ventricular, first line
26.Not a respiratory device, a circulatory thing, improves cardiac perfusion
29.ventricular chaos, no contraction, no cardiac output, no bp
30.abbreviated name for our favorite resource for respiratory concerns
31.basic initial treatment for pulseless victim (abbrv)
33.abbreviation for FIRST treatment, available to the public for use. Listen to and follow prompts, constitutes an order.
