Review of First & Third Degree AV Blocks

Pass ACLS Tip of the Day

Mar 4 2024 • 7 mins

To pass ACLS, you will need to be able to identify common rhythms on a monitor during your mega code and ECG strips on your written exam.

If you don't normally monitor patients as part of your job, I suggest two things:

  1. Find a system for ECG interpretation that works well for you; and
  2. Practice reading ECGs every day for a few weeks before your class.

Review of normal ECG morphology of P wave, QRS complex, and T wave in lead II.

Characteristics of first degree heart block.

Characteristics of third degree (complete) AV block.

Treatment of unstable patients in third degree block following the ACLS Bradycardia algorithm.

Special considerations for use of Atropine when patients are in a third degree heart block.

The use of TCP, Dopamine, & Epinephrine drip for unstable bradycardic patients refractory to Atropine.
