Chapter Seven, Radek cardia Welcome to the lesson on recognizing bradycardia. In this video, we'll discuss what product cardia means and how to recognize it. Radek, cardia is defined as a heart rate that's lower than what is considered normal for a child's age. bracket cardia and children and infants should be evaluated, but not all bradycardia needs to be medically managed. intervention is required when Braddock cardio is symptomatic, and compromises cardiovascular function. This commonly means that the heart is beating too slowly to maintain blood pressure, thereby causing shock for tissue perfusion and or a change in mental status.
Symptomatic bradycardia can cause a number of signs and symptoms including low blood pressure, pulmonary edema or congestion, abnormal rhythm, chest discomfort, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, confusion, and or syncope. Radek cardiac most commonly becomes symptomatic when it is of new onset for the individual which means acute slow of the heart rate. The following are the kinds of Braddock cardio and what happens during specific Braddock cardiac events. sinus bradycardia normal rhythm with a slow rate. First Degree a V block, PR interval is longer than point two zero seconds. Type One second degree AB block or mobitz.
One PR interval increases in length until QRS complex is dropped. Type to second degree AV block or mobitz to PR interval is the same length with intermittently dropped QRS complex. Third Degree AV block or complete. PR interval and QRS complex are not coordinated with each other. This concludes our lesson on recognizing bradycardia Next, we'll review responding to Brad cardia.
