- A series of clinical algorithms created by the AHA/ASA used in the treatment of cardiovascular/neurological emergencies.
- Involves airway management, IV access, and ECG interpretation.
- What is the atrial and ventricular rate?
- Is the rhythm regular or irregular?
- If irregular, does it follow any repeatable pattern?
- What is the axis?
- ERAD often seen in VT but not SVT
- What is the P wave amplitude, duration, morphology, and synchrony with QRS complex?
- Is the P wave positive in Lead II
- What is the QRS complex amplitude, duration, morphology?
- What is the T wave amplitude, duration, morphology?
- Is the T wave positive in Lead II
- What is the length of PR and QT intervals?
- Is there ST Elevation/Depression or Hyperacute T waves?
- If yes, does it follow any anatomical pattern or is it diffuse?
- Is there anything else abnormal about this ECG?
- Pacemaker Spikes
- Hypertrophy of atrial/ventricles
