Summary of "One case of elderly patient with extremely severe burn complicated by ventricular tachycardia."

One elderly patient with extremely severe burn was admitted to our department on 4th August, 2017. The patient suffered multiple sustained ventricular tachycardia from post injury day 2 to 4 due to relatively high input volume during shock stage. Amiodarone could not be given through intravenous injection because of his low blood pressure. After consultation with cardiologist, ventricular tachycardia was corrected by electrical cardioversion of several times. According to this case, the first treatment is electrical cardioversion when elderly patient with extremely severe burn shows sustained ventricular tachycardia which can not be corrected with medicine.
