[Answer] You are caring for a 3 year old with vomitting and diarrhea. The child’s pulses are palpable but faint and the child is now lethargic. The HR is variable (range 44/min to 62/min). You begin bag-mask ventilation with 100% oxygen. When the HR does not improve you begin chest comnpressions. The rhythm shown here is seen on the cardiac monitor (bradycardia). Which would be the most appropriate therapy to consider next?

Answer: Atropine 0.02 mg/kg IV
