Not me.  Over 8 minutes of CPR with a tube in place and I "treat" with Subxiphoid FAST view and a call to the ME.

Who among you treats victims of blunt traumatic cardiac arrest with "ACLS
protocol" drugs?  I'm referring to the blunt trauma patient brought in to ER
with closed chest compressions in progress and no palpable pulses with
wide-complex bradycardia.  Who gives boluses of epinephrine/atropine/sodium
bicarbonate to these patients?  What is the role for these drugs in the
treatment of obvious blunt traumatic arrest?
