New Beginnings: Better Vagal Maneuvers for Arrhythmias and eCigarettes in Adolescents
Amol and Fahad discuss:
1. A randomized controlled trial shows that a new approach to vagal maneuvers for supraventricular tachyarrhythmia was shown to be significantly more effective than traditional maneuvers.
2. A survey in California adolescents shows that there is an association between eCigarette use and subsequent tobacco use, raising concerns about a ‘gateway’ effect.
