Block 7.0 Topic: Cardiovascular Nursing & EKG Monitoring , part 2 Module: 2.3

2 Cardiovascular--- EKG’s / Cardiac Monitoring
Dynamic Presentation Static Presentation Note: A Power Point Presentation is designed for active viewing (or at least, this one is!). This presentation was not designed to be the template for a handout to be printed on paper. It is designed for viewing in the “Slide Show” Mode. Lead II Part II Block Module 2.3 Digitalis pupurea (Foxglove)

3 At the conclusion of this class (and after some practice)
the nurse will be able to: State the four characteristics of cardiac muscle, and relate these characteristics to cardiac output. 2. Trace the flow of blood through the heart & lungs, naming all associated structures Trace electrical conduction through the cardiac conduction system and correlate to the EKG Tracing. State the intrinsic rates of SA node, atria, AV node, and Ventricles 5. Identify waveforms, landmarks on the EKG tracing: P, QRS, T, U, baseline 6. Identify and measure P-R Interval (PRI), QRS duration, ST Segment 7. Using an EKG tracing, Calculate heart rate and rhythm 8. Using data from EKG analysis, determine name of cardiac rhythm 9. Based upon identified cardiac rhythm, correlate & determine rhythm’s effect on cardiac output. 10. Identify NSR, SB, ST, SVT, A-fib, A-flut, 1st-2nd-3rd degree AV Blocks, PVC’s, PAC’s, V-Tach, V-Fib, Toursades, Asystole, PEA 11. Identify nursing actions related to cardiac monitor readings and care of the cardiac patient. 12. Be familiar with the following medications and their effect on the cardiac output: Alpha Blockers, Beta Blockers, Ca Channel Blockers, Atropine, Lidocaine, amiodarone, epinephrine, digoxin Block Module 2.3

20 Cardiac Output! * REMEMBER:
At the ‘end of the day,’ IT’S ALL ABOUT C.O. = H R & R x S V B.P. = C.O. X P V R S V R Cardiac Output! * * Tissue perfusion of vital organs…and everything else…. Block Module 2.3

21 An Important Caveat / Caution….
Cardiac Monitoring is a powerful diagnostic and patient care tool (only) Correlate the monitor reading to the patient’s condition ! Check / Assess your patient for cardiac output! The terms “EKG” and “ECG” ARE INTERCHANGEABLE Block Module 2.3

22 The “Stepwise” Method Block Module 2.3

23 EKG PAPER Block Module 2.3

24 TIME EKG PAPER Small Block = 0.04 sec
5 Small Blocks = 1 Large Block = 0.20 sec 5 Large Blocks = 1 second EKG PAPER TIME Note: Standard EKG Machines “run” at 25 mm/sec “Amplitude” Or Strength of Electrical Impulse Block Module 2.3

25 “Standard” Limb Leads Lead II “universal”-- Most useful
Block Module 2.3

26 “ Chest Leads “ (for 12-Lead ECG)
Block Module 2.3

27 The ECG Complex, Wave forms, Intervals, Segments
Block Module 2.3

28 P Waves Signal from the Sino Atrial Node (SA Node)
“Normal Pacemaker of the heart” Should be upright ( Lead II ) Should all look ~ alike Should have 1:1 ratio with QRS Complexes Rhythms generated by this called “Sinus”, e.g., Sinus Rhythm, Normal Sinus Rhythm, Sinus Bradycardia, Sinus Tachycardia, Sinus Arrhythmia Block Module 2.3

29 P-R Interval (PRI) Measure from beginning of P Wave to first deflection (up or down) from baseline to start QRS Complex Time it takes for impulse to go from SA Node to ventricles Normal time = 0.12 to seconds ( 3-5 little blocks…) (3 x 0.04= 0.12… 5 x 0.04= 0.20) Less than 0.12 sec PRI may indicate AV Node--“junctional” problem Greater than 0.20 sec indicates AV Block (1st – 2nd- 3rd degree) PRI’s should all be ~ equal Block Module 2.3

30 QRS Complex General Overview: Are they narrow or wide?
Electrical conduction through the ventricles Ventricular Function ~ = Cardiac Output Appearance is generally consistent with ventricular function Normal = < 0.12 seconds “3 little boxes” (3 x 0.04 = 0.12 sec) QRS should all be ~ same form / shape If greater than seconds, indicates “trouble,” i.e., a conduction delay in the ventricles Block Module 2.3

31 S T Segment ? Time from ventricular depolarization to ventricular repolarization Frequently “speaks” of trouble within the ventricles Elevated or depressed ST segment may indicate previous or ongoing ischemia or damage to ventricular myocardium General rule of thumb: ST Depression ↓ = Ischemia ST Elevation ↑ = Infarction Block Module 2.3

32 Block Module 2.3

33 T Waves Represent repolarization of Ventricles, i.e., “preparing to beat again” Should be upright (lead II) Should appear ~ same “Flipped or inverted T waves” may be sign of prior or ongoing ventricular damage Prolonged QT Interval may represent problems with ventricular repolarization— due to damage or medication effect Block Module 2.3

34 “U” WAVES Potassium Effect HYPOKALEMIA Fairly Rare…. P QRS T U
TALL “TENT-LIKE” T Waves Caused by: K+ Hyperkalemia Either One, if not corrected, Means that ventricular tachycardia, And / or ventricular fibrillation IS on the way! Block Module 2.3

35 Block Module 2.3

36 Repetition—Repetition--Repetition
Overview— Develop Your Method Practice IT & Follow IT ! Repetition—Repetition--Repetition Apply findings and observations to CRITERIA 1. General Overview of strip 2. Rate 3. Rhythm 4. P Waves 5. P-R Interval (PRI) 6. QRS Interval 7. Q-T Interval Block Module 2.3

37 Cardiac Output! * REMEMBER:
At the ‘end of the day,’ IT’S ALL ABOUT C.O. = H R & R x S V B.P. = C.O. X P V R S V R Cardiac Output! * * Tissue perfusion of vital organs…and everything else…. Block Module 2.3

38 Measuring Time and Events…
P P Baseline or Isoelectric line Block Module 2.3

39 Three Methods for rate determination…
120 start 300 150 100 60 Easy Way: 12 x 10 (almost 11)= 120’s Accurate if the rhythm is REGULAR 75 Memorize…. OR divide 300 By # of Big Boxes Between QRS complexes…or divide 60 by # seconds between qrs’s Block Module 2.3

40 Discussion … Measuring PRI & QRS
Block Module 2.3

41 Rates…Intervals… Remember the “normals”:
PRI= 0.12 – 0.20 seconds (SA Node to Ventricles) QRS = < 0.12 seconds Time Through the Ventricles Block Module 2.3

But first…….. …..a word from our sponsors……. Block Module 2.3

43 Power Point XL® (slidepidem HCl) Doses of 50, 100, or 150 slides
“P-P XL® helped me get my get my recommended 8 hours of sleep every day! Four hours at home, 1 hour in Pharmacology, two hours in Pedi, and 2 hours in Adult Health I ! I’ve never felt so refreshed! Wait—that adds up to eight, doesn’t it?” --Samantha Jones, Fictitious Nursing Student Indications: Powerful relief from NSRI* (Nursing School Related Insomnia) Power Point XL® is indicated for the treatment of chronic insomnia related to nursing school stress. With a starting dose of 50 slides per hour, P-P XL® is proven effective at hastening the onset of sleep in over 85% of nursing students. When combined with extremely boring material, the effect is even more pronounced* Warning: use cautiously with students with preexisting sleep apnea. ~END OF PRESENTATION~ GO TO THE NEXT PRESENTATION, Module 2.4 Block Module 2.3
