Had a patient on the floor tonight (not one of mine) who had runs of VT that extended to 80-90 beat runs, all the while feeling asymptomatic. She was A & O x 3. Was resting supine in bed at the time. She couldn't understand what all the fuss was about.
"I feel fine!"
Started with 20 beat runs of VT, and MD was rx'ing it w/ po amio.But pt then extended on w/ tons of ectopy, couplets, runs of VT 30 beat long, 50 beat...80-90 beat runs. Po amiodarone not helping, apparently. LOL! Patient feeling no symptoms during episodes. Started on Amio drip as I left. What's the longest run of VT you've seen with patient A&Ox3 & feeling fine? I'm curious!
Strangest thing I've seen on tele in a long time.
