Practical Tips on Emergent Transcutaneous and Transvenous Pacing

Originally Published; 2013-Mar-01

Was one of the faculty for a simulation day with some lecture stations.  The station I had was a short lecture on the setting up of emergent transcutaneous and transvenous pacing followed by some hands on.  Figured I would record the lecture and post it up for whoever was interested.  I did have to put in some echo guided pacemaker insertion clips since I was giving the presentation.

As a side note some of the discussion points may not be applicable depending on what kind of equipment your facility regularly stocks.
