Broad Complex Tachycardia

So in our last Roadside to Resus episode we covered narrow complex tachycardias. In that we delved pretty deep into the normal cardiac conductance along with the clinical assessment and their management.

This episode is going to build on some of that…so if you haven’t already given it a listen, we’d recommend you pause here, take a listen….and then come back on board!! 

But for those of you that have already listened, here we go with the bigger brother and even more exciting broad complex tachycardia episode!! Again we’ll be covering everything from the underlying electrophysiological abnormality, all the way through to the assessment and treatment of patients with these life threatening presentations.

Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.
