Greetings from Australia
Thank you so much for those most useful links. I am wondering if you have any in relation to Mobilisation of the patient following AMI. There are so many differing opinions and I am aiming to put together guidelines for patient mobilisation for a new unit. Any input as to what others do in their CCU's would be most helpful and appreciated.
Your getting Transmyocardial Revascularization (TMR) and a MAZE confused. TMR is where a laser is used to 'drill' holes through the myocardium in order to promote collateral capillary beds as a method of perfusion.
A MAZE is a procedure where the atria and the pulmonary veins are surgically manipulated in order to reorganize the internodal pathways.
And YES you will see asystole, junctional, a flutter and EVEN afib in someone s/p MAZE. A fib will persist for up to 6 months. Its akin to seeing the wierd conductions in valves.
She told you to look it up because you will remember it better than if she had just told you. How hard is it to look things up these days with google?
