Sample text

A combination of arterial hypoxaemia and impaired arterial oxygen delivery (causing myocardial damage, acute blood loss, or severe anaemia) may render vital organs reversibly or irreversibly hypoxic. The brain will respond with loss of consciousness, risking (further) obstructed ventilation or unprotected pulmonary aspiration (or both). Impaired oxygen supply to the heart may affect contractility and induce rhythm disturbances if not already present. Renal and gut hypoxaemia do not usually present immediate problems but may contribute to “multiple organ dysfunction” at a later stage.

The tachycardia may be abolished with a return of normal rhythm when the pacemaker is switched off Management of peri-arrest arrhythmias tachycardias are, in general, less dangerous than those of ventricular origin and only rarely occur after the successful treatment of ventricular tachyarrhythmias. Nevertheless, they are a recognised trigger for the development of ventricular fibrillation in vulnerable patients. If the patient is pulseless in association with a narrow complex tachycardia, then electrical cardioversion should be attempted immediately.

Broad complex tachycardia: treatment will depend on the presence of adverse signs Broad complex tachycardia Little harm results if supraventricular tachycardia is treated as a ventricular arrhythmia; however, the converse error may have serious consequences. The first question that determines management is whether a palpable pulse is present. Pulseless ventricular tachycardia should be treated as cardiac arrest using the ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia protocols described in Chapter 2.
