Although a Holter has been done the patient may need an Event Monitor and if this is negative an implantable monitor may be needed. We need to make sure she has normal LV function by Echo etc as she does have a history of PVC's. Vasodepressor syndrome needs to be also considered as she does have some features compatible with this. TTT would be reasonable. Finally hypotension secondary to the endocrine problem needs to be considered. Perhaps she might need a vasoactive medication as she does have hypotension. ...Read more
