So following on from our Bradycardia episode, we're going to look in detail at cardiac pacing.
Setting up emergency pacing in those compromised bradycardia patients can make a significant difference to patient outcomes, and doing so in a timely and slick fashion can be a real challenge.
In this episode we'll be discussing all forms of pacing, strategies for ensuring the greatest likelihood of success and the details of setup and analgesia/sedation strategies for external pacing.
Once again we'd love to hear any comments or questions either via the website or social media.

Welcome back to 200th episode of the podcast! A huge thank to all of you for your support and engagement.
Three more papers for you this month to challenge thinking across a board range of Emergency Care. First up we take a look at DOSE VF, an RCT look at the best defibrillation strategy for refractory VF.
Next we take a look at another RCT looking at the potential benefit of dexamethasone, in order to reduce pain in patients suffering with renal colic.
Last up, we've talked a lot about the importance of first pass success in advanced airway management, but what (if any) is the association with mortality in prehospital RSI?
Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.
