How do you assess and manage a patient with bradycardia?
By Medic Mindset Podcast
Our host, Ginger Locke, sits down with Austin Travis County Associate Medical Director, Dr. Heidi Abraham, to discuss prehospital care of patients experiencing bradycardia.
They cover the assessment, differential diagnosis and therapeutic interventions related to bradycardia.
- When is bradycardia the cause of the patient condition and when is it an unrelated finding?
- What are the common causes of bradycardia and how does a medic think critically in order to differentiate those causes?
- When should a medic use transcutaneous pacing and when is pharmacological intervention a better option?
They tackle all of these questions and more.
