YouTube Video Of Dr. Bruce Janiak’s Cardioversion from Atrial Fibrillation With Additional Resources

In this post I link to and embed  Dr. Larry Mellick‘s [Link is to Dr. Mellick’s outstanding YouTube channel] YouTube video, Dr. Bruce Janiak’s Cardioversion from Atrial Fibrillation, July 7, 2017. 15:08.

In addition to reviewing the above video, I reviewed the following resources relevant to this video. These resources relate to unstable atrial fibrillation while the video relates to a semi-elective cardioversion of a stable patient. I include the extra resources to cover all of the potential scenarios in atrial fibrillation.

  • IBCC chapter & cast – Atrial Fibrillation (AF) & Flutter complicating critical illness. January 6, 2017 by Dr. Josh Farkas
    • “AF is the most common arrhythmia encountered in the ICU.(29627355) The two most common scenarios are:
      • (1) A patient with chronic AF develops critical illness.
      • (2) A patient who was previously in sinus rhythm develops new-onset AF (NOAF) while in the ICU, secondary to the physiologic stress of critical illness (e.g., secondary to sepsis or pulmonary embolism).

  • YouTube video, Push-Dose Pressors, March 14, 2019 from Core EM. The video discusses the preparation of and use of both push-dose vasopressors, epinephrine and phenylephrine.

Dr. Mellick comments on his video:

Dr. Bruce Janiak, a 74 year old full-time emergency medicine physician, allows a video of his cardioversion from atrial fibrillation in order to demonstrate both the ease and safety of this procedure. Dr. Janiak holds the distinction of being the first ever emergency medicine residency graduate in the world.
