Goals & Objectives

Brief Summary of Case:

Elderly man in ICU 12 hours post cardiac arrest.  ETT blocks leading to cardiac deterioration.

Learning Objectives:

Recognize and act on cardiac rhythm changes

Assess airway and connect its’ relationship to bradycardia or rhythm changes

Initiate the appropriate treatment algorithm for the management of a patient with an obstructed airway/bradycardia

Perform CPR

Demonstrate role clarity and delegation of roles and responsibilities at the beginning of the scenario

Demonstrate effective communication – clear messages, closed loop, sharing mental model

Exhibit elements of good teamwork

Demonstrate effective resource utilization

Trouble shoot the patient, not the monitor.
