Asystole. 2. Ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia. 3. Pulseless electrical activity (including electro mechanical dissociation). 1 but for the purpose of teaching the arrest rhythms will be discussed separately. ASYSTOLE This is the most common arrest rhythm in children, because the response of the young heart to prolonged severe hypoxia and acidosis is progressive bradycardia leading to asystole. 2. The ECG appearance of ventricular asystole is an almost straight line; occasionally P-waves are seen.

Systolic blood pressure by age Age (years) <1 1–2 2–5 5–12 >12 Systolic blood pressure (mmHg) 70–90 80–95 80–100 90–110 100–120 Use of the correct cuff size is crucial if an accurate blood pressure measurement is to be obtained. This caveat applies both to auscultatory and to oscillometric devices. The width of the cuff should be more than 80% of the length of the upper arm and the bladder more than 40% of the arm’s circumference.
