You were seen today in the emergency department for palpitations. Your evaluation, which included a history and physical, an EKG and ***chest x-ray, and blood work, showed no emergency cause for your symptoms.
You need to follow-up with your primary care doctor or cardiologist within 3 to 5 days. If you continue to have palpitations, sometimes the next step is to perform continuous monitoring of your heartbeat while you go back to day. This is called a Holter monitor or a ZIO Patch, and needs to be arranged by your PCP or cardiologist.
Please return to the emergency department for chest pain, shortness of breath, lightheadedness or dizziness, or other symptoms that are concerning to you.
