Tracings captured during a code
The case was post-MI/ sp stenting and intra-aortic balloon pump was placed. I think the LAD was the culprit artery.
I would just like to show in the tracings the mechanical component of VT (central venous pressure waves - CVP) and the arterial line (in a pt with AIBP - set at 1:2 AIBP support).

Look at the mechanical effect of VT on the arterial pressure.

An image showing the on-going compression (CPR) in a patient with VT and the arterial pressure it generates.
CPR during VT and its generated pressure.
Shock for VT.
Perceived organized electrical activity but absence of mechanical activity (no activity in the arterial waves).
