    • What about the nearly arrest patient? Where evidence based medicine has yet to go but where we often find ourselves SP-ER conference 9 Aug 2009 Suthaporn Lumlertgul M.D. King Chulalongkorn Memorial hospital Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Reference: Harvard Shock symposium Sunday, August 9, 2009

    • Objective • Manage case that is nearly dead, guideline yet go there • Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • นาทีเฉียดตาย • Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Example case • A 60 year old woman with complaint lightheadness, chest tightness • HR= 150/min, BP=200/110 RR=36/min O2 Sat 96% Temp=37.4 Sunday, August 9, 2009

    • What are you examining in AF patient? Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • What are you examining in AF patient? • A 60 year old woman with complaint lightheadness, chest tightness • HR= 150/min, BP=200/110 • RR=36/min O2 Sat 90% Temp=37.4 Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Define Unstable • Patients as those with ventricular rates 150, • ongoing chest pain, or with evidence of critical perfusion: • systolic BP 90 mm Hg, heart failure, or reduced consciousness. Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Rapid AF • AHA guideline for management of a patient with hypotension and AF with RVR would be cardioversion • DC Cardioversion Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Would you cardiovert the patient? Sunday, August 9, 2009

    • Rhythm Digoxin Rate Diltiazem/verapamil Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Cardiovert Rhythm Digoxin Rate Diltiazem/verapamil Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Cardiovert Rhythm Amiodarone Digoxin Rate Diltiazem/verapamil Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • What are you using? Amiodarone Diltiazem Adenosine Digoxin Beta blocker Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • What are you using? Digoxin Beta blocker 5 min Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • What are you using? Digoxin Cardiovert Beta blocker 5 min Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • What are you using? Digoxin Cardiovert Diltiazem Beta blocker 5 min Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • What are you using? Amiodarone Digoxin Cardiovert Diltiazem Beta blocker 5 min Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • What are you using? Amiodarone Digoxin Cardiovert Diltiazem Beta blocker 5 min Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Diltiazem • Schreck et al compared the effectiveness of IV Diltiazem receive diltiazem with digoxin. In this open-label RCT, consecutive patients with acute AF were assigned to more rapid rate receive either diltiazem (0.25 mg/kg initial bolus followed by 0.35 mg/kg 15 min after, and then an control in 5 min infusion of 10 to 20 mg/h to maintain a heart rate thank digoxin 100), digoxin (0.25-mg boluses at 0 and 30 min), or both digoxin and diltiazem. Follow-up was for 180 min. Treatment with diltiazem achieved a rapid reduction in ventricular rate compared to digoxin, the results becoming statistically significant by 5 min Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Diltiazem • Rate-limiting calcium channel antagonists have therefore been shown to be effective in ventricular rate reduction in acute AF. The major adverse event reported from the RCTs was the precipitation of symptomatic hypotension (18% of patients) Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Amiodarone Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Digoxin • Double-blind RCT recruited 40 patients to receive either digoxin (total IVdose of 1.25 mg in divided doses) or placebo. • At 12 h posttherapy, there was no significant difference between the rates of conversion between the digoxin • Ventricular rate reduction was 30 min Sunday, August 9, 2009

    • •LV systolic function looks depressed (subcostal long axis view) RV •Reduce SV by reducing diastolic time / by absence of atrial kick). LV Loss of atrial kick sign? Sunday, August 9, 2009

LV •After prompt cardioversion, sinus rhythm is restored and LV systolic function looks now much better Loss of atrial kick sign? Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • What does it cause? Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Loss of atrial kick What does it cause? Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Blood don’t go into Loss of atrial kick atrium What does it cause? Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Blood don’t go into Loss of atrial kick It reflux into neck vein atrium What does it cause? Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • • Patient was administered Digoxin IV • After not improving the clinical patient was administered Diltiazem IV • Patient has less lightheadesness but still have chest tightness • Heart rate was slower from 170 to 130/ min but BP still 200/100 Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • • Patient was treated with Nicardipine IV • He feel less lightheadeness still chest discomfort • Old ECG show no atrial fibrillation Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Take home message • Remember for the unstable signs in limited time Heart failure, poor perfusion • How fast do you think the patient will survive on this rhythm • Pick the choice of treatment from that Sunday, August 9, 2009
    • Case II • BP=110/60 HR=130 RR=20 T=37.3 • Complaint of chest tightness, Sunday, August 9, 2009
