  1. Indications for Epinephrine
    • Asystole
    • Sinus arrest
    • V-fib
  2. Indications for Lidocaine
    • V-tach
    • V-fib
    • Decreases ventricular activity
  3. Indications for atropine
    • Sinus Brady
    • Asystole
    • Nodal bradycardia
  4. What drug is given for heart blocks
    Atropine
  5. Premature Ventricular Contraction
    wave pattern 
    treatment
    • the shape of the QRS complex is abnormal and wider than 0.12
    • Lidocaine
  6. What are the indications for dobutamine
    Depressed myocardial contractility
  7. What does dopamine do?
    • Increases CO
    • Enhanced AV conduction.
  8. What are the indications for dopamine.
    Hypotension
  9. How does dopamine work?
    • Increases CO
    • Increased BP
  10. Atrial flutter wave pattern description and treatment
    P waves have a sawtooth  pattern
  11. In atrial flutter what does 2:1, 3:1,  or 4:1 mean?
    • 2:1= 2 atrial impulses for each ventricular beat
    • 3:1= 3  atrial impulses for each ventricular beat
    • 4:1=4  atrial impulses for each ventricular beat
  12. Premature Atrial contraction
    wave pattern
    treatment
    the premature P wave looks differnt that sinus P and the PAC occurs sooner than the next beat would be expected
  13. Ventricular Tachycardia
    waveform
    treatment
    • P waves and PR intervals are absent or hidden in the QRS complex; each QRS  is wider than normal and is a run of 3 or more PVC's
    • Treatment= Lidocane, defib, CPR
  14. V fib
    waveform
    Treatment
    • Can not be determined
    • Treatment= defib, CPR, Lidocaine
  15. First degree heart block
    Wave form
    Treatment
    • PR interval longer than 0.20 s
    • Treatment= atropine, isoproterenol
  16. 2nd degree heart block
    Wave form
    Treatment
    The QRW complex is normal but may be preceded by 2-4 P waves

    Treatment= Isoproterenol, atropine, pacemaker
  17. 3rd degree heart block
    Wave form
    Treatment
    • PR interval cannot be determined QRS complex may be normal or widened. 
    • Treatment= Pacemaker
