Sudden death: Acls procedures for cpr, along with defibrillation, and antiarrhythmic drug initiation. After stabilizing, next goal is to determine whether the event was a primary arrythmia event or whether it occurred secondary to something else (heart attack, oxygenation, or electrolyte abnormality).
