Your patient is a 56yo male complaining of weakness and light-headedness. He is fully alert with decent BP and a HR of around 120. You do a quick 3-lead and he has strange, wide-complex tachycardic rhythm. Electrical therapy isn't indicated. Maryland Protocol tells us to start treatment with adenosine and follow it up with amiodarone.

Watch the video below, from University of Maryland's own Dr. Amal Mattu to learn why this would be a terrible mistake.
