NCLEX Review: EKG Ventricular Arrhythmias

Ventricular arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms that originate in the ventricles. This is the leading cause of sudden cardiac death. We will start with a review of the heart’s electrical conduction system to understand how ventricular arrhythmias occur. Then, as we explore the topic of ventricular arrhythmias further in this NCLEX exam video, we will discuss: how to identify them on an EKG strip, factors leading to an impulse generated by the ventricles, premature ventricular contraction (PVC), what the nurse’s responsibility is, ventricular tachycardia, Torsades de Pointes, ventricular fibrillation and defibrillation. At the end of this video, you should feel comfortable answering NCLEX test questions about ventricular arrhythmias.
