Transvenous Pacing

The last two weeks, Dr. Cash taught us about bradycardia and transcutaneous pacing. This week, we dug back years into the archives and pulled out Dr. Pelletier-Bui’s famous post on transvenous pacing.

A timeless classic! Just be sure to know what supplies are available in your department, where to find them, and alternate options if your supplies differ.
