100

supplies blood to the right atrium and right ventricle

Right coronary artery

200

represents atrial depolarization

p wave

200

Mechanism of Adenosine

Slow conduction through the AV node and reset/block re entry rhythms

200

How should compressions be performed in adult cardiac arrest

rate of 100-120, hard and fast with full chest recoil. 

200

Sitting forward may help to relieve chest pain caused by this inflammation

200

initiates depolarization

On an EKG this wave can be a sign of a previous infarction

pathological Q wave

400

Use of Phosphodiesterase 5 Inhibitors with this medication is a contraindication

Other than the person in the monitor role, Who can assist with interpreting the arrest rhythm

code leader

400

build up of plaque in the vessel walls leading to narrowing or occlusion

atherosclerosis

400

neurotransmitter of the parasympathetic system and the enzyme that breaks it down

acetylcholine (transmitter) acetylcholinesterase (enzyme)

500

Injury from hypothermia may result in this on an EKG

Osborne wave or J wave

Using the lowest dose of levophed, calculate the gtts/min on a 60 gtt set for a 80 kg patient. Available to you is a 1L bag of saline and 4mg of Levophed. 

120gtts/min

500

A patient has received 1 defibrillation, 1 dose of epinephrine 1mg, a second defibrillation, and 300mg of Amiodarone. The patient on next rhythm check has a slow weak carotid and sinus bradycardia on the monitor. The next step is to?

Continue ventilations at 1 breath q 6 seconds, obtain a 12 lead and blood pressure. 

500

General weakness, radiating pain to jaw and left arm, shortness of breath

Common signs in conjunction with anginal pain associated with myocardial ischemia
