What is Pulseless Electrical Activity ECG?
Pulseless electrical activity (PEA) is a condition where the heart’s electrical activity is present, but there is no pulse or blood flow. An electrocardiogram (ECG) can help diagnose PEA by measuring the heart’s electrical activity.

- Hypovolemia (low blood volume)
- Hypoxia (low oxygen levels)
- Acidosis (high acidity levels in the blood)
- Hypothermia (low body temperature)
- Tension pneumothorax (collapsed lung)
- Tamponade (fluid buildup around the heart)
- Toxins (drug overdose)
