Palpitations

Palpitation assessment in primary care – this flowchart presents the busy GP with an opportunity to quickly assess patients presenting with palpitation. It starts with listing the causes of palpitation followed by assessment and investigations. ECG findings which need further attention are mentioned clearly. A risk stratification following assessment allows the clinician to make an appropriate management plan . Admission and referral criteria are cited  and a photo of the palpitation leaflet from the British Heart Foundation is shown – this can be printed from the website as PIL
