    Who is your audience? Are we talking stepdown RN's who may also be relatively new to nursing, or are you expected to simply refresh a group of well-healed veteran CCU RN's? Something in between, perhaps?

    I was wondering the same thing. Would the audience benefit from a review of pacemaker problems such as failure to capture/sense/pace and what to do about it?

    Why a patient would need temporary pacing would be a good place to start
