Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion This chapter explains how to prepare for and perform asynchronous and synchronous (cardioversion) defibrillation using multifunction electrode pads, external paddles, and internal paddles. Defibrillation is always performed through paddles or pads. However, during defibrillation you may N O T E choose to monitor the ECG using an alternate ECG source (3-, 5-, or 10-lead monitoring electrodes).
6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Overview Precautions for Manual Defibrillation Therapy Defibrillating asystole can inhibit the recovery of natural pacemakers in the heart and completely eliminate any chance of recovery. Asystole should not be routinely shocked. Synchronized Cardioversion Therapy The HeartStart MRx provides synchronized cardioversion therapy by delivering a brief biphasic pulse of electricity to the cardiac muscle immediately following an R-wave detected in the ECG measurement.
Code View 6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Code View In Manual Defib Mode, an energy is selected and the Code View is displayed. Code View is optimized to clearly communicate data associated with a resuscitation event. Notice the increased prominence of the Event Timer, as well as the enlarged ECG in Wave Sectors 1 and 2 as shown in Figure 46.
6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Preparing for Defibrillation Preparing for Defibrillation In preparation for defibrillation: Connect the appropriate Therapy cable. Apply the paddles or pads as described below. Using Multifunction Electrode Pads To prepare for defibrillation using multifunction electrode pads: If not pre-connected, connect the pads cable to the HeartStart MRx by aligning the white pointer on the pads cable connector with the white arrow on the green Therapy port.
Preparing for Defibrillation 6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Using External Paddles To defibrillate using external paddles: If not pre-connected, connect the paddles cable to the HeartStart MRx by aligning the white pointer on the paddles cable connector with the white arrow on the green Therapy port. Then push until you hear it click into place.
6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Preparing for Defibrillation Using Pediatric Paddles The HeartStart MRx’s external paddle set comes with pediatric paddles included. The American Heart Association recommends using pediatric paddles on children weighing < 10 Kg (larger paddles may be used as long as contact between the paddles is avoided).
Defibrillating (asynchronously) 6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Defibrillating (asynchronously) Once you have performed the necessary preparation for defibrillation, perform the following steps: Select Energy - To select the energy setting, rotate the Therapy Knob to the desired energy level as shown in Figure 51.
6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Defibrillating (asynchronously) harge Charge - Press the Charge button on the front panel. If using external paddles, the charge button on the paddles may be used instead. As the defibrillator charges, the energy selection shown in the Shock Status area changes to show the current charge energy.
When using paddles, you should monitor the ECG through monitoring electrodes connected to a 3-, 5- or 10-lead ECG cable or a Philips bedside monitor. You may choose to monitor through an alternate source when using pads, as well. Cardioversion is still delivered through either pads or paddles.
6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Performing Synchronized Cardioversion Delivering a Synchronized Shock To perform synchronized cardioversion: With the Therapy Knob in the Monitor position, press the Sync button located beside the Therapy Knob (see Figure 51) to activate the Sync function. A Sync message appears in the upper right corner of Wave Sector 1.
Troubleshooting 6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Delivering Additional Synchronized Shocks If additional synchronized shocks are indicated, perform the following steps: Make sure the Sync function is still enabled, as indicated by the presence of the Sync message in the upper right corner of the Wave Sector 1. Repeat Steps 4-6 under “Delivering a Synchronized Shock”.
Noninvasive Pacing This chapter explains the noninvasive transcutaneous pacing option available with the HeartStart MRx and describes how to perform pacing. Overview Noninvasive transcutaneous pacing therapy is used to deliver pace pulses to the heart. Pace pulses are delivered through multifunction electrode pads that are applied to the patient’s bare chest. While in Pacer Mode, the ECG strip and Event Summary are easily annotated with event information using the Mark Event function button.
7 Noninvasive Pacing Alarms Alarms Arrhythmia alarms for Pacer Not Pacing and Pacer Not Capture are associated with non- transcutaneous pacing (such as internal, transvenous or epicardial pacing), therefore, these alarms are off when the HeartStart MRx is in Pacer Mode. All other red and yellow alarms are active if enabled, and their limits may be changed while in Pacer Mode.
Pacing View 7 Noninvasive Pacing Pacing View Pacing View appears when the Therapy Knob is set to the Pacer position. Figure 52 shows information displayed in Pacing View. Figure 52 Pacing View 10 Feb 2006 11:20 10 Feb 2006 11:20 Mark Event Jones, Samuel 02:02:42...
7 Noninvasive Pacing Demand Mode Versus Fixed Mode A white pacing marker appears on the ECG waveform in Wave Sector 1 each time a pacer pulse is delivered to the patient. If pacing in demand mode, white R-wave markers also appear on the ECG until capture occurs.
Preparing for Pacing 7 Noninvasive Pacing Preparing for Pacing To prepare for pacing: If not pre-connected, connect the pads cable to the HeartStart MRx by aligning the white pointer on the pads cable with the white arrow on the green Therapy port. Then push until you hear it click into place.
7 Noninvasive Pacing Demand Mode Pacing If pacing in demand mode, apply monitoring electrodes (see “Electrode Placement” on page 51), and connect the ECG cable to the HeartStart MRx (see “Connecting the ECG Cable” on page 35). If pacing for long periods of time, new monitoring electrodes and multifunction electrode pads should N O T E be applied periodically.
Fixed Mode Pacing 7 Noninvasive Pacing Spontaneous beats may be present which are not associated with the delivery of pace pulses. N O T E Additionally, if the patient’s heart rate is above the pacer rate, pace pulses are not delivered and, therefore, pacing markers do not appear.
7 Noninvasive Pacing Fixed Mode Pacing Use the Lead Select button to select the desired lead for viewing. If you want to see the ECG waveform and related parameters while pacing, you must have electrodes N O T E on the patient with pads. Using pads only will give you an incorrect heart rate and inappropriate alarms.
Defibrillating During Pacing 7 Noninvasive Pacing Defibrillating During Pacing Should it be necessary to defibrillate the patient during pacing, refer to the procedure for defibrillating in Manual Defib Mode in Chapter 6, or AED Mode in Chapter 5. Once the Therapy Knob is moved from the Pacer position to a Manual Defib Mode energy setting or AED, pacing is stopped.
The HeartStart MRx allows you to monitor SpO while in Monitor, Manual Defib, and Pacer modes. When using the Q-CPR option, SpO monitoring functionality is not available. For more information on SpO , refer to the Application Note, Philips Pulse Oximetry. N O T E...
8 Pulse Oximetry Understanding Pulse Oximetry Understanding Pulse Oximetry A pulse oximetry sensor sends light through patient tissue to a receiver on the other side of the sensor.
