The Path (More) Traveled – Part I
Interesting strip, easier to read as a thumbnail than as a full one. Would love a 12-Lead as some of the complexes could be wide.
Otherwise, looks like AF w/ RVR (rate 190-210) with the shortest R-R at around 220ms; which is too close for comfort.
Transport expeditiously. He is hemodynamically stable. Might try 5mg of Lopressor but would generally just give him a ride.
Agreed, very difficult to read this strip without a grid.
