Figure 2: Patient's electrocardiogram (EKG) tracing and arterial line wave form showing bradycardia evolving to asystole as a result of EMI during electrocauterization with coagulation mode while the electrodispersive pad was on the opposite shoulder of the pacemaker. A similar response was seen when the electrodispersive pad was moved to the contralateral thigh
