Bradycardia With A Pulse ACLS Algorithm - Updated 2018

The Bradycardia With A Pulse Algorithm provides the information you need to assess and manage a patient with symptomatic bradycardia or a heart rate under 50 bpm. For some people (ie. runners), a slower heart rate may be normal and they will be asymptomatic.

Algorithm Notes

Evaluation:

  1. Determine the rate.

  2. Look for evidence that the rate is causing hypoperfusion: this includes altered mental status, ischemic chest pain, acute heart failure, shock, dizziness, dyspnea, weakness, or fatigue.

  3. Determine if there is atrioventricular conduction block.

CRITICAL CONCEPT:The goal is to determine whether the bradycardia is causing the patient's symptoms or some other illness is causing the bradycardia.

Treatment:

  1. Begin with treatment and stabilization of the patient utilizing the primary and secondary surveys of ACLS: Maintain airway, assist breathing, provide oxygen as needed, and monitor blood pressure and heart rate.

  2. If you have not done so, obtain a 12-lead ECG.

Adult Cardiac Arrest Algorithm

Adult Cardiac Arrest Algorithm

The Cardiac Arrest Algorithm is the most critical algorithm of ACLS. When you have a patient without a pulse, you must recognize either ventricular fibrillation (VF) or pulseless ventricular tachycardia (pVT) as shockable rhythms.

Cardiac Arrest Circular Algorithm

Cardiac Arrest Circular Algorithm

This algorithm is a summary of the recommended steps when a patient is in cardiac arrest. Starting with CPR, you’ll work through the sequence by relying on rhythm checks, shocks if VF/pVT, and drug delivery.

Suspected Stroke Algorithm

Suspected Stroke Algorithm

The ACLS Suspected Stroke Algorithm emphasizes critical actions for out-of-hospital and in-hospital care and treatment. A stroke is an interruption in blood supply to a part of the brain which causes acute neurologic impairment.

Post-Cardiac Arrest Care Algorithm

Post Cardiac Arrest Care Algorithm

This will take you through the implementation of a comprehensive treatment protocol for post-cardiac arrest care. This case is applicable to a patient who has had cardiac arrest and was resuscitated with the BLS, ACLS Primary, and ACLS Secondary Assessments.

Tachycardia With A Pulse Algorithm

Tachycardia With A Pulse Algorithm

With this algorithm, you'll need to determine if the patient is stable or unstable by evaluating and determining if the rhythm is regular or irregular and if the QRS is wide or narrow. This can help you determine the type of tachyarrhythmia.
