Infant SVT

Case Summary:

6-month-old female with presents with crying and poor oral intake, but is otherwise alert. When placed on monitors, the patient is revealed to be in stable SVT. Vagal maneuvers and 2x attempts adenosine are provided without arrhythmia reversal. The patient’s oxygenation, ventilation and circulation decline and the patient develops unstable SVT. With BVM (patient will have PEA arrest if intubated), SVT terminates with 1J/kg synchronized cardioversion.


The following slides are deliberately “view only” (since they are the master slides). To use them – you simply need to copy and paste the slides you would like to use into your own, new Google Slides Document.

How can you make your Virtual Resus Room using these slides?
  1. Click on link for Room
  2. This will open in a new tab as a “View Only” Google Slide document
  3. Google Slide -> File -> Make a copy -> Entire presentation
  4. Copy document pops up. Name case. Press Ok.
    • Name slide set something generic like “Room A” so it doesn’t contain spoilers when you share with your learners!
  5. This will open new tab as your editable Google Slide document
  6. File -> Version History -> Name Current Version -> “Unused Room”
    • This will save this untouched version of the room before the case starts (See “Resetting Room after Case” in “Running the Sim”:)
