      According to the AHA ACLS Guidelines, if a patient has a pulse, and unstable with any type of tachycardia, synchronized cardioversion is the first method of choice. If the defibrillator will not sync with the patient’s rhythm, then defibrillation should be attempted.

      Kind regards,

      When advancing through the pulseless arrest algorithm, if pulselessness has been established and VT persists, it is not necessary to recheck a pulse. The VT is indicates the need for defibrillation. A pulse check would be a waste of time since there has been no rhythm change from a rhythm that was already assessed as being pulseless. This same thing would be true for ventricular fibrillation.

      Kind regards,
      Jeff

    This rhythm is v tach. ALWAYS check a pulse before shocking v tach. A lot of people fail their mega codes by not checking for a pulse when seeing v tach on the monitor. You don’t need to check a pulse with v fib but v tach can have a pulse, remember. Now go save some lives.

    I am so glad to find your web site. I am taking ACLS test for first time in 2 wks, new info to me since I worked mostly OB. I love the dramatic music, helps make the event like a movie and helps me to remember since I enjoy those kinds of films. Thanks for the site.
