The Use Of Pacemakers For Critical Patients?
I want to ask, if you want to die, the patient will be given a heartbeat, well, the reaction of the person whose heart will be normal / normal is the surprise / the movement is big or small
Good evening, thanks for the question
Maybe the pacemaker you mean is an electric shock device or what is called a defibrillator. Provision of electric shock to the heart is only indicated in patients with critical cardiac arrest with a picture of heart rhythm, ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia without pulse. In addition to the two rhythms should not be given an electric shock.
Giving a dose of electroshock energy starts with a small dose and then increased to the next dose to a minimum dose, ranging from 20-360 joules depending on the type of equipment used. The response to the patient can be in the form of a return to the rhythm and spontaneous circulation if done immediately after the type of rhythm that has been previously mentioned is found. Another side effect when an electric shock is done is burns on the former electric shock paddle for example due to the surface of wet skin or the surface of hairy skin.
So, hopefully this information can be useful
