The Evaluation And Management of Pediatric Cardiac Tachyarrhythmias: An Evidenced-Based Approach

June 2006

  Abstract

Tachycardia is a common problem that ED physicians face on a daily basis. Generally it is a benign condition related to emotional distress, especially in a young child with febrile illnesses, dehydration of variable degrees, or pain. Primary pediatric tachyarrhythmias are relatively infrequent, and in a healthy child, the majority are of a benign nature. It is the small number of potentially dangerous tachyarrhythmias, occasionally masked by another illness, that should be rapidly identified and appropriately managed by the ED physician.
