Palpatations and Light-Headedness: Another 'Typical' Day
March 04, 2015
A 73 year-old man presents to the emergency department from his internist's office where he had complained of palpitations and light-headedness that began 4 hours earlier after his daily exercise regimen. He did not appear distressed, but his heart rate was 160 beats per minute. Blood pressure was 140/90. He had no light-headedness at the time, but continued to report palpitations. An ECG was performed.
