Manage this patient’s case from presentation to outcome when you try our latest Interactive Medical Case, The Beat Goes On.
A 45-year-old white man was brought to the emergency room by emergency medical services personnel after a syncopal event. He did not report any chest pain. He was found to have a monomorphic, wide-complex tachycardia at a rate of 240 beats per minute, with a blood pressure of 110/50 mm Hg. Amiodarone was administered without effect. His systolic blood pressure subsequently fell to 70 mm Hg. Electrical cardioversion with procedural sedation was performed, and sinus rhythm was restored.
As you proceed, you will be guided through the patient’s clinical developments and presented with detailed videos and graphics from lab and radiologic tests. Multiple-choice questions throughout allow you to test your diagnostic and therapeutic skills. Once a choice is made, you receive immediate feedback on your decision.
Interactive Medical Cases are based on our popular Clinical Problem-Solving series. You may later read the full Clinical-Problem Solving report. CME credit is available.
