Es gibt plötzlich auftretende #Herzrhythmusstörungen („Herzrasen“), die sich oft durch einfache Manöver behandeln lassen.

#einfachMedizin eben.

Ein Thread: 1/x

EKG einer solchen Rhythmusstörung:
Oft geht dieses Herzrasen auch mit Begleiterscheinungen wie Schwindel, Unwohlsein, Engefühl im Brustkorb o.ä. einher.

und ist so eindrücklich, dass der Rettungsdienst alarmiert wird und die Patient:innen in der #Notaufnahme vorstellig werden.

En nuestros #SabadosdePOCUS tuvimos a @ACRP901 con el tema:

"Los Secretos Ecográficos de la Vena Cava Inferior (#VCI/#IVC)"

¿Quieres enterarte de alguna puntos claves?

Abrimos hilo... 🧵 #POCUS

Y recuerda: los secretos se encontrarán en la #Fisiología más que en la ecografía per se.
La #VCI se encuentra inmersa en varios protocolos y en las modificaciones de cada uno de estos dependiendo el contexto del paciente (#FOCUS, #RUSH, #EFAST).

Se habían utilizado a la #VCI regularmente para medir el estado de volemia y una posible respuesta (o no) a fluidos.
