The patient gets the palpitations – he goes to the doctor – after a few days, the doctor does an ECG and tells the patient this is ok. The patient goes home and gets more palpitations. The patient goes back to the GP. The GP says you need a 24-hour tape and unsurprisingly the patient doesn’t get any palpitations and therefore when the GP says that the holter was unremarkable the patient does not feel reassured and the palps continue happening and the patient is lost as to what to do next. In this video I have to discuss the various different tests there are what the advantages and disadvantages are of each.
