A 56 y/o is admitted to the E.R. for cardiac ischemia. The EKG reading is ventricular fibrillation. The patient then suddenly goes into cardiac arrest (asystole or flatline on a monitor). What should be done to the patient and why? (In simple terms)
CPR should be started. Shock should not be administered because there is no conduction or electricity going through the heart. Once CPR has given a rhythm, shock can then be administered because there is electrical conduction occurring.
Explain the differences of "their," "they're," and "there."
Their = possessive They're = they are There = position
What is the blood flow through the heart starting with the Inferior/Superior Vena Cava and ending with the body? (With details)
Inferior/Superior vena cava --> R. atrium --> tricuspid valve --> R. ventricle --> pulmonic or semilunar valve --> pulmonary artery --> to the capillary beds in the lungs --> pulmonary vein --> L. atrium --> bicuspid or mitral valve --> L. ventricle --> aorta --> rest of body
