GAVIN: Well, I had to give you some medicine, slow your heart down It’s gonna feel like you’re on an elevator and it drop– just gonna make you feel funny His heart rate was, like, 180 to 200 We gave him medicine called adenosine to try and break that rhythm and bring him down to a normal rate PAIGE: He still hadn’t budged He’s still way up there You want the other 12, or is it pads time? : I’m gonna call U.H You ready to go? Yeah Time to go GAVIN: New Orleans EMS, University I’m bringing you a 52-year-old male, short of breath Heart rate 180 SVT No change with six and 12 milligrams of adenosine I’ll put the pads on him, ’cause his pressure’s dropping He didn’t respond to the adenosine Once the medicine didn’t work, we go to cardioversion We place the pads on him, set it at 50 joules The electricity about to hit him will slow that heart rate down All right, Mr. Joseph, I got to get you out of that heart rate, okay?
