Pacemaker setup – demand and non demand modes

There is a significant error in the wording on the Pacemakers page (page 110) regarding the set up of a transcutaneous pacemaker.

This section should read:

  • should be set to non demand mode when there is no organised rhythm
  • set to demand mode if no there is an organised rhythm as this prevents pacing on Q wave that can precipitate ventricular tachyarrhythmias

This error will be corrected in the online version with the next upload of files.
