I have been in nursing for 35 years and have worked in a variety of settings including hospice, long term care, med-surg, supervision, cath lab, ER, special procedures and critical care. I enjoy working as a float nurse because it gives me a variety of clinical experiences. I am also a CPR, ACLS, and PALS instructor at our local hospital.

AICD Defibrillation of VT
This patient had an AICD. He was a DNR. These pages show something of the changes in his heart rhythm. It terminated in VT. His AICD did fire but was unsuccessful in converting the rhythm.
