The Only 2 Cardiac Arrest Arrhythmias We Should Shock:

During cardiac arrest, we must analyze the rhythm immediately and shock if the rhythm is ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia.

Defibrillate with 120-200 joules with biphasic units, 200-360 with monophasic units.

*do not defibrillate for ventricular tachycardia when the patient has a palpable pulse

    Fantastic experience. I did my EKG certification course and they made it very stress free and fun. It's also a plus that it only takes three days and they have plenty of equipment to practice skills on. I'll definitely return for other certs. - 1/03/2020
