ECG Monitoring in Syncope

R.E.B.E.L.EM - By Mark Ramzy - June 13, 2019
..."Clinical Bottom Line:
  • Cardiac monitoring cutoff periods based on patient risk for adverse outcomes are not only clinically sensible but also serve to balance over-testing vs benefit of diagnostic yield. While the risk factors, times and recommended dispositions based off this study are derived below, it is important to recognize that various clinicians in different healthcare systems may have dissimilar thresholds
    • Low Risk (2-hour observation) = Residual 0.2% risk of serious arrhythmic outcome (ZERO of the low risk cohort were ventricular arrhythmias or death) and can be discharged home
    • Medium Risk (6-hour observation) = Residual 5.0% risk of serious arrhythmic outcome (0.9% of the medium risk cohort were ventricular arrhythmias or death) and can most likely be discharged home but requires follow-up within 24-48hours
    • High Risk (6-hour observation) = Residual 18.1% risk of serious arrhythmic outcome (6.3% of the high risk cohort were ventricular arrhythmias or death) and likely need to be admitted if follow-up cannot be arranged before 24-48 hours"
