I already looked at the 2010 ECC guidelines closely and it was not mentioned in the ROSC section that I could find. Maybe I missed it.  I seem to remember that the 2005 AHA ECC guidelines mentioned that post conversion anti-arrhythmia meds should only be considered if there was a need for it and that data did not support it being…See More
