Did you have any symptoms while you wore the outpatient monitor? If not we don't know if your original episode was caused by a cardiac arrhythmia. Your echocardiogram and EKG showed no abnormalities. To check your coronary artery status, I recommend having a maximal treadmill stress test. If this is ok and you have any further episodes, consult a neurologist.
