List the treatments for unstable SVT.

A. Your patient is a 67-year-old female with a history of cardiac problems. After

 

attaching her to the monitor, you see a slightly irregular rhythm with normal

d. wandering atrial pacemaker.

B. The heart rate characteristic of atrial tachycardia is __________ beats per

minute. (LO 13.5)

a. 60 to 100
