I met up with an old friend I having seen in many years. She told me that 6 years ago she had been diagnosed with "palpitations" and given a small dose of a beta blocker I've never heard of. She wasn't ever given a follow up appointment. Her heart is regular but during an episode can go to 200 b.p.m.
I didn't want to worry her unnecessarily but I wondered if she should be anticoagulated. I have read that atrial flutter should be treated as A.F. in this respect and this sounds similar if not worse. What does everyone think? X
