EMT, Batman, Harry Potter, Hockey, Chicago Blackhawks, Cats, Rent, and anything else I find amusing, entertaining, awesome... In other words, whatever I want.

Raynaud’s phenomenon is a rare disorder of the blood vessels, usually in the fingers and toes. It causes the blood vessels to narrow when you are cold or feeling stressed. When this happens, blood can’t get to the surface of the skin and the affected areas turn white and blue. When the blood flow returns, the skin turns red and throbs or tingles. In severe cases, loss of blood flow can cause sores or tissue death. Primary Raynaud’s happens on its own. The cause is not known. There is also secondary Raynaud’s, which is caused by injuries, other diseases, or certain medicines. People in colder climates are more likely to develop Raynaud’s. It is also more common in women, people with a family history, and those over age 30.

Ventricular Tachycardia (V-Tach)

Ventricular Tachycardia is a dysrhythmia that usually originates from a single site within the ventricles at a rate greater than 100 bpm. The QRS complex is wide, bizarre and >0.12 seconds. As the heart rate increases, the ventricles do not have the opportunity to completely empty and refill. Therefore, cardiac output is decreased and adequate amounts of blood are not circulated to vital organs. Once the heart rate exceeds 160 impulses per minute, there is usually no effective pumping action of the heart and the patient presents with PULSELESS V-Tach. This patient requires immediate defibrillation. It is possible to have a pulse with V-Tach, however this will degrade into a life threatening dysrhythmia if left untreated.

 

Ventricular Fibrillation (V-Fib)

With V-Fib there are many impulses initiated from many locations within the ventricles. As a result the cardiac output is nonexistent and the patient will not have a pulse. The fibrillation may be fine or course waves. As the amplitude of fibrillation waves decreases so does the chance of successful defibrillation and reorganization of a viable perfusing rhythm.
