Based only on the rhythm in this 12 Lead, would you cardiovert this patient? As they say in the NREMT tests, don’t read too much into the question.
Here is the long awaited update. Sorry for the delay, I’ll have my wimpy excuse in a post tomorrow.
Yes, the ED decided to cardiovert the patient. Why, I don’t know unless there was something else going on that I don’t know about. I just can’t think of what that might be as the ventricular rate was certainly well in control. Anyway, here is the post cardioversion 12 Lead.
So now, it just looks a first degree AV block. Maybe it isn’t but other than vanquishing the ugly looking Flutter waves, was there any benefit to the patient?
