    It was dismal performance on 1st go but once I reviewed all the dosages it was better.
    The practice tests are perfect to let me know where I needed to concentrate .
    Great program

      Hi Anne,
      A variety of arrhythmias may be associated with hypokalemia, including sinus bradycardia, premature atrial and ventricular beats, paroxysmal atrial or junctional tachycardia, atrioventricular block, ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation.

      Early prehospital symptoms may include muscle twitching, leg cramps, and weakness. Advanced symptoms include paresis or ascending paralysis. Constipation or intestinal paralysis and respiratory failure often present as signs of severe hypokalemia.

      Other changes that may not be apparent in the prehospital setting for hypokalemia can include detrimental effects on the cardiovascular system. These are ECG changes: (U waves, T wave flattening and ST-segment changes), cardiac arrhythmias (sometimes lethal) and heart failure.
      Kind regards, Jeff

    In the rapid rhythm identification video (Video 3) it stated that the first intervention for unstable bradycardia would be to give 0.5 mg Atropine IVP and then start TCP, if needed. In question #6, “Preparation for transcutaneous pacing should be made for which of the following?”….unstable sinus bradycardia is listed as one of the correct answers and in the explanation section it states, “All of these rhythms listed can rapidly degenerate into more serious conditions and are an indication to ready for immediate transcutaneous pacing.”

    I just want to make sure I’m understanding this correctly…is the first line treatment and the first thing you should do for unstable sinus bradycardia is give Atropine, or should you perform transcutaneous pacing immediately if it’s available?

      The first thing that should be done is give atropine and immediately prepare for TCP. Keep in mind that if the administration is going to delay TCP that the delivery of atropine can be disregarded.

      Kind regards,
