The American Heart Association is responsible for early determination for all patients who are found to be cardiac arrest. If you work at the prehospital care environment, you should consider the need for biphasic depolarization and defibrillation for all of your cardiac arrest victims. Do not become complacent in the old ways of advanced cardiac life support. We must be progressive and accepting when teaching cardiac defibrillation. Paramedics and doctors have become accustomed to utilizing cardiac monitor to save lives of those faced with cardiovascular collapse.
Grady Hospital has been very instrumental in donating cardiac monitors to local fire departments to improve their statistics for quick different relation of all patients found to be in a rhythm that requires electricity. If your local agency needs a cardiac monitor, please feel free to contact the head physician of the emergency room at Grady Memorial Hospital. And take into account the early different relation is the only thing that really helps correct a cardiac disturbance for patients who do not have a pulse.
