Algorithm for atrial fibrillation (presumed supraventricular tachycardia). Adapted from ALS Course Provider Manual.
Asystole is the initial rhythm in about 10% of patients and PEA accounts for an even smaller proportion, probably less than 5%. The situation is different in hospital, where the primary mechanism of cardiac arrest is more often asystole or PEA. These rhythms are much more difficult to treat than VF and carry a much worse prognosis. Asystole: baseline drift is present. The ECG is rarely a completely straight line in asystole Asystolic cardiac arrest Suppression of all natural or artificial cardiac pacemakers in asystolic cardiac arrest leads to ventricular standstill.
Factors that suggest this are a previous history of asystole, Möbitz type 2 atrioventricular (AV) block, complete heart block with a wide QRS complex, or ventricular pauses greater than three seconds. If any of these factors are present, further atropine should be given, or external pacing instituted while temporary transvenous pacing is being arranged. If no adverse signs are present, and the patient is not at risk of asystole, the patient should simply be observed closely. - Systolic BP <90 mmHg - Heart rate <40 beats/minute - Ventricular arrhythmias requiring suppression - Heart failure Satisfactory response?
