Cardiac Arrest

During my last rotation, I realized I have somewhat of a passion for learning more about the mysterious tracings that I see on heart monitors.  Apparently there is an entire post RN course dedicated specifically to this topic, but being me, I want to know it all now. I can now identify an elevated S-T segment and a few other significant tracings, but that's where it stands for now! It's a start.

In the interim, the video clip below is a representation of the different waves that occur during cardiac arrest. Its my understanding that this is a simulation, and not an actual tracing of a patient death.

I love this stuff!!!
