Question 1 of 10
The decision pathway for treatment with the pediatric tachycardia algorithm includes three assessment questions used to direct interventions. Choose the correct three questions.CorrectIncorrect
Question 2 of 10
A QRS complex that is considered normal (narrow) should be ≤ _____ sec.CorrectIncorrect
Question 3 of 10
(True or False) Supraventricular tachycardia is a normal response to stress or fever.CorrectIncorrect
Question 4 of 10
Tachyarrhythmias in infants my go undetected for long periods of time and lead to compromised cardiac output which can cause congestive heart failure. Which of the following are signs that may suggest congestive heart failure in an infant? (Choose all correct answers)CorrectIncorrect
Question 5 of 10
When a tachyarrhythmia is present, coronary perfusion (blood flow to the heart) can be significantly decreased. This is caused by a decrease in the duration of ___________.CorrectIncorrect
Question 6 of 10
Choose the three rhythms that typically have a normal width QRS complex of less than 0.09 sec.CorrectIncorrect
Question 7 of 10
The most common tachyarrhythmia that causes cardiovascular compromise during infancy is _______________.CorrectIncorrect
Question 8 of 10
(True or False) SVT in infants maybe present but undetected for long periods until cardiac output is significantly impaired.CorrectIncorrect
Question 9 of 10
(True or False). Wide QRS complex SVT can be difficult to differentiate from ventricular tachycardia. For the infant or child with poor perfusion, wide QRS complex SVT should be presumed to be ventricular tachycardia unless the child has a known history of aberrant conduction.CorrectIncorrect
Question 10 of 10
Most children who develop ventricular tachycardia have underlying heart disease, long QT syndrome, or cardiomyopathy. Other causes include which of the following electrolyte disturbances? (choose all correct answers)CorrectIncorrect
