No big deal: The LAFB is of no concern. The BP and pulse rate are of major concern. What was found at the hospital?

Odd- I must assume that by the time your reached the hospital, your heart rate and BP had settled down? A recording of your heart rhythm (event monitor) may help if it recurs in the next 30 days.
