I got a direct admit last night, who had gone to see the cardiologist (general malaise), who did an EKG that determined she was A fib, with a rate in the 40's. Has anyone every seen A fib w/a rate that low?
He told her to come to the hospital to be admitted, which she did 4-5 hours after her appointment with him. To make a long story short, by the time I got her, she had converted to sinus brady (40's-50's), so I never got to see the A fib with the low rate.
I was just curious if anyone had ever seen A fib w/a low heart rate?
