Although the overall need for emergency pacing following AMI has reduced with the wide spread use of thrombolysis the availability of transcutaneous pacing offers an emergency non-invasive strategy to optimise circulation following CHB or ventricular standstill. Transcutaneous pacing also facilitates the safe instigation of thrombolytic therapy to achieve reperfusion of the conduction system following AMI.
