The ST segment is the point where the end of the ______ and the _____ wave join.
QRS and the T wave join.
Will PVCs cause palpitations in the client
yes, feel for a pulse deficit when the beats occur
How many seconds is each small block on a rhythm strip?
0.04 seconds, this may be used to determine intervals such as the PR interval or the duration of the QRS complex. If the complex is really small, adjust the gain or amplitude on the monitor
What do I begin joules at for Defibrillation
200 joules up to 360, clinet is uncouscious, EKG monitor, no cardiac output, Must be in Ventricular Fibrillation or Tachycardia, it is an emergent procedure to safe a life.
