Every 3-5 minutes-2. after the second shock and with alternate shocks-see guideline 11.6 page 3 of the australian guidelines and page 46 of the uk guidelines.the immediate resumption of cpr following a defibrillation attempt without pulse or rhythm check make it difficult to recommend when adrenalineshould be given.every 3-5 minutes equates to just before alternate shocks. the subsequent cpr will circulate the drug.the timing is the same for asystole/pea algorithm.the initial sequence of actions would be for 2 minutes of cpr following attempted defibrillation of vf/vt, followed by rhythm check and further shock, followed by cpr, at which point adrenaline is given during the rhythm check.
