    if we start the algorithm with non shockable rhythm , and started to give epinephrine every 4 minutes , and rhythm changed to shockable rhythm , should we stopped epinephrine and start again after 2nd shock , or to continue epinephrine every 4 minutes as epinephrine once started never stopped ??
    Thank you in advance

    Hi! Did the joules for monophasic defibrillation change? Wasn’t it 200, 300, 360? And is it now just 360J from the start? Thanks.

    • ACLS says

      For some time the monophasic dosing calls for 1st dose to be 360 J and all subsequent doses to be 360 J. I think this was a 2010 change.

      Kind regards,
