Treatment for PEA : Treatment for PEA If VT/VF persists : If VT/VF persists Follow shock able side of algorithm Treatment for asystole and slow PEA(rate <60 min-1) : Treatment for asystole and slow PEA(rate <60 min-1) During CPR : During CPR Reversible causes : Reversible causes 4 H : 4 H 4T : 4T CPR in a pregnant patient : CPR in a pregnant patient Left lateral tilt(15-30 degrees) of patient Periarrest caesarean section should begin within 4 minutes Sterile preparation is not necessary Moving the patient to operating theatre isn’t necessary You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
