    Is it important to purchase the AHA ACLS provider manual
    prior to taking the exam? I am just using your site for preparation for the ACLS exam and megacode.

      I have many customers that use the website as a standalone study resource for the provider course.

      I do not think the provider manual is necessary. The only thing you may need is the code from the first page of the book to login to the website to take the pretest of you have to take it before your class.

      Kind regards,
      Jeff

    Hi Jeff,

    Please explain this answer…

    Which ECG rhythm is commonly associated with bradycardia? MOST patients I encounter with a bradycardia are in a sinus rhythm (pts on beta blockers, runners, etc). Why is the answer Mobitz 2? The question does not include “in an ACLS situation.

    Thanks so much for everything.
    Mary

      I only wanted one of the choices to be a bradyarrhythmia. None of the other rhythms that were given as choices are associated with bradycardia and therefore there was only one correct choice to pick. I hope that makes sense. I took out the word “commonly” in the question. I think that word may have thrown you off, and I can see how someone may have assumed the question meant “the most common.”

      Thanks for the feedback.

      Kind regards,
      Jeff

    Thanks once again, Jeff, for coaching me through my ACLS review. I passed but couldn’t have done it without your tests, mega codes and scenarios. It was a great review and well worth the price. Talk to you again in 2019!!!!!

    AHA/ACLS manual page 123 bradycardia algorithm in #1 states HR typically <50/min if bradyarrhythmia

    • Jeff with admin. says

      classification of bradyarrhythmia is any rhythm disorder with a heart rate of less than 60. The rationale in question 4 is simply stating that symptoms of a bradyarrhythmia are typically not seen unless the rate is less than 50. Kind regards, Jeff

    Jeff,
    Do you know of any good websites that are good for getting a decent refresher for ECG’s? I have been away from them for several years and just need to brush up on them. I know my lethal rhythms pretty well. Seems the blocks give me the hardest time. I don’t need a 12 lead either.

    Thanks

    • Jeff with admin. says

      Did you find the ECG review on the website? There is a good basic review of all blocks and other rhythms seen in ACLS. You can find it here: ACLS Rhythm Review Page.
      Unfortunately, most other websites that you will find on the internet are directed at 12-Lead ECG interpretation.

      Kind regards,
      Jeff

    First line treatment vs. Drug of Choice are not the same. Epinephrine as a greater versatility in clinical practice. In some rhythms atropine drug is not indicated.

    • Jeff with admin. says

      Bradycardia is often times caused by ongoing myocardial infarction and myocardial ischemia. This state causes significant irritability to the heart. This irritability can lead to runs of VT and even VF as the ischemia worsens. It is the irritation and hypoxia on the myocardium that is the most likely cause of runs of VT with bradycardia.

      Kind regards,
      Jeff
