Transcutaneaous Pacing

  1. 0 I(we) have a few questions about TCP

    1. Can you do chest compressions (I dont think so but we need clarification)( it has to with ther just being electrical stimulation and not actual pumping i.e. asystole
    2. If yes what kind of electrical problems does this present?

    YEs you can do compressions--even though you have electrical stimulus the heart is not responding so it is necessary 'manually' pump the heart.

    Electrical disturbances? That compressions cause? Or TVP? I'm unclear what the question is. Just because you have electrical activity with the TVP doesn't mean the cells are actually depolarizing. Can you clarify the question?
