Question: If TCP with Zoll E series, what are the steps to be taken when transferring care to the receiving facility? Procedure to switch to their machine?


It is difficult to answer this question given the regional nature of our program and the variability of receiving emergency departments' equipment and the direction of the receiving emergency physicians. Our recommendation is when transferring care of transcutaneously paced patients communicate clearly with the receiving medical staff and ask for direction as to the sequence they prefer on a case by case basis to ensure that these unstable patients do not lose mechanical capture.
