PEA is the abbreviation for a type of cardiac arrest known as pulseless electrical activity. PEA is an organized rhythm without a pulse where the electrical activity of the heart may appear normal, but the heart muscle is not responding. Performing high quality CPR is the initial treatment for PEA. In addition to CPR, identifying underlying causes like the H’s and T’s early and treating them quickly is the key to reversing PEA.
