27. A pt. presents to the ER with dizziness and SOB with a sinus brady of 40/min. The initial atropine dose was ineffective and your monitor does not provide TCP. What is the appropriate dose of Dopamine for this pt?

29. A monitored pt. in the ICU developed a suddent onset of narrow complex tach at a rate of 220/min. The pt's BP is 128/58, the PETCO2 is 38mm Hg, and the O2 sat is 98%. There is an EJ established for vascular access. The pt. denies taking any vasodialators. A 12 lead shows no ischemia or infarction. Vagal manuevers are ineffective. What is the next intervention?
30. You receiving a radio report from an EMS team enroute with a pt. who may be having a stroke. The hospital CT scanner is broken. What should you do?
31. Choose an appropriate inidication to stop or withhold resuscitive efforts.
32. A 49 y/ofmaile arrives in the ER with persistant epigastric pain. She has been taking antacids PO for the past 6 hours because she she had heartburn. BP is 118/72, heart rate is 92/min, resp. rate is 14 non-labored and O2 sat is 96%. What is the most appropriate next action?
33. A pt. in respiratory failure becomes apneic but contineues to have a strong pulse. The heart rate is dropping paridly and now shows a sinus brady rate at 30/min. What intervention has the highest priority?
34. What is the appropriate procedure for ET suctioning after the catheter is selected?
35. While treating a stable pt for dizziness, a BP of 68/30, cool and clammy, you see a brady rythm on the ECG. How do you treat this?
36. A 68 y/o female pt. experienced a sudden onset of right arm weakness. BP is 140/90, pulse is 78/min, resp rate is non-labored 14/min, 02 sat is 97%. Lead 2 in the ECG shows a sinus rythm. What would be your next action?
