Agonal Rhythm

A series of rhythm strips on a DNR patient.  Notice the changes in the QRS complex as the patient becomes progressively hypoxic with resulting myocardia ischemia.

Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
