    The science behind ‘generating intra-thoracic pressure’ with a 10cc syringe misses the entire point about interrupting SVT. Increasing the IT pressure will decrease venous return and subsequently increase heart rate – this is easy physiology. If you are trying for a VAGAL impulse (to slow the rate or preferably block the AV node), this will occur AFTER the pressure is released. So to enhance it, lay the patient flat and lift the legs as soon as the syringe leaves their lips. Give it 15-20 seconds or so. You wont need adenosine.
