Intern Rounds – Arrhythmias

intensive care

This week at the Animal Accident & Emergency Intern Rounds, the team are discussing arrhythmias. Just like in people we frequently run ECG’s.

ECG are a way of assessing the electrical activity of the heart. It checks to see if your heart is beating correctly. When the electrical activity is abnormal then your heart may beat too fast, too slow or a combination of problems. In our emergency centres we run ECG’s routinely on our sick patients, looking for diseases of the heart or other diseases that may affect the heart.

In this weeks rounds, the team are revising ECG identification and discussing the latest information on medications that are used when to help the heart in a crisis.
