PMID:  1393747     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Temporary cardiac pacing in the critical care setting can be a lifesaving intervention in a number of clinical situations. A variety of catheter types and pulse generators are available. Insertion techniques include the use of fluoroscopic imaging, intracavitary ECG monitoring, and blind advancement with surface ECG monitoring. This article focuses on the indications, equipment, techniques, complications, and troubleshooting of temporary transvenous cardiac pacemakers.
