When dealing with pleuro-vac's is it true you wont have any intermittent bubbling in the water seal chamber when there is wall suction present? I understand gentle or intermittent bubbling in this chamber may be seen in the presence of pneumothorax. But was told today it will be absent if theres wall suction present. Is this true?
Question, can one cardiovert a patient with just the handsfree pads on the patient? Does the monitor's leads absolutely need to be on the patient also? I understand for pacing they need to be. What about for cardioversion?
