PALS Tachycardia Algorithm | Learn & Master PALS

    Hi there,
    I’m kind of confused. In the Tachy Algorithm for pt with pulse/poor perfusion, where it says “presume VT”(right branch), then next step is to determine if pt is unstable (hypotension, LOC change, signs of shock). My question is: if they are with pulse and inadequate perfusion- are the not considered unstable anyway, namely because of hypoperfusion?
    What am I missing? THanks in advance!

      Yes you are correct. Tachycardia with a pulse can be either adequate perfusion or inadequate perfusion. Determination of whether the patient has adequate perfusion or inadequate perfusion will determine the intervention and the algorithm that you will follow.

      Kind regards,
