They may need augmentation of their cardiac output, suppression of dysrhythmias, or conversion of atrial flutter through rapid atrial pacing. Those who develop heart block postoperatively require pacing to maintain normal atrioventricular conduction. This activity will address temporary epicardial pacing after cardiovascular surgery and the care of patients undergoing this therapy.
