Author: Andrew Bowman.
I am an acute care nurse practitioner in 2 busy community ED’s in Indiana, USA.
I have been involved in EMS and ED for just under 30 years and have been an ACNP for 5 years.
My interests are ED critical care, cardiac care, airway, trauma and toxicology.
I had originally written this article as part of my Masters in Nursing program then tweaked it and got it published in the Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal (AENJ).
I teach ENPC, TNCC, CATN.
Former ACLS and PALS instructor until I got tired of the AHA.
Teach paramedics on a regular basis.
Individuals with Wolff-Parkinson White syndrome may range from the undiagnosed, asymptomatic patient to the patient experiencing sudden arrhythmic death.
This article hopes to provide the advanced emergency nurse practitioner with a background on the discovery of this potentially lethal arrhythmia, its incidence and characteristic electrocardiogram findings, as well as an overview on emergency management and long term management options of this syndrome.
