Arrhythmias Part One: Palpitations

In this episode Dr Bill Jamieson kick starts a series of podcasts on Arrhythmias by looking at the well patient presenting with palpitations.

We cover:

  • Red flags in the presentation of a patient with palpitations
  • The approach to assessing the ECG with 'WOBBLER' 
  • The key parts of the history not to miss
  • Examination and investigations
  • Arranging follow-up (and deciding if it is needed) for our patient
