WPW syndrome is usually insignificant if the patient has no signs of tachycardia. What causes it • Commonly congenital in origin What to look for • Usually no symptoms • If tachyarrhythmias develop with a high ventricular response, palpitations, sudden onset of chest pain, shortness of breath and, possibly, syncope How it’s treated • If the patient is hemodynamically unstable, perform synchronized cardioversion immediately (initially, 50 to 100 joules of biphasic energy). • For patients with a rapid rate, consult a practitioner and consider administering amiodarone to control the rate.

If torsades is associated with cardiac arrest, consider giving magnesium sulfate. indd 45 10/7/2011 4:18:04 PM RECOGNIZING CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS 46 360 joules monophasic energy, perform CPR for 2 minutes, and then defibrillate again and resume CPR. Then administer epinephrine or vasopressin. Resume attempts at CPR and defibrillation and consider other antiarrhythmics such as amiodarone. Ventricular fibrillation Commonly called V-fib, ventricular fibrillation is a chaotic pattern of electrical activity in the ventricles in which electrical impulses arise from many different foci.

What the ECG tells you • Rhythm: Atrial rhythm is unmeasurable. Ventricular rhythm is usually regular but may be slightly irregular. • Rate: Atrial rate is unmeasurable. Ventricular rate is usually rapid (100 to 250 beats/minute). • P wave: Usually absent; may be obscured by and is dissociated from the QRS complex. Retrograde P waves may be present. • PR interval: Unmeasurable. 12 second; bizarre appearance, usually with increased amplitude. • T wave: Occurs in opposite direction of QRS complex.
