Patients with unstable bradycardias frequently require insertion of a transvenous pacemaker as part of their initial ED resuscitation. Although this is a relatively common procedure in the hospital setting, it isn’t done all that often in the emergency department. The procedure for insertion of a transvenous pacemaker is straightforward, but creates quite a bit of anxiety for providers who haven’t inserted one in a while. This lab will teach you the steps of pacemaker insertion & what to do once it has been placed. Participants completing this workshop will gain confidence in taking care of this group of critically ill patients.
