  2. Most of the patients will have epicardial pacing leads from O.T. If there is need, the pacing wires are connected 
  3. to the external pacemaker and pacing as per the need is done. 
  4. Serum sodium and potassium is tested as soon as receiving the patient to ICU, then every two hourly for 12 hours and then Q4H to Q6H.
