Examples

1. A patient is diagnosed with long QT syndrome and has been
commenced on beta-blockers with no symptoms and a QTc
of 470 ms. No genetic testing has been performed. She has a
7-year-old daughter and asks about the risks for her child.
What is it appropriate to tell her?
A. The patient should be considered for genetic testing
B. The patient’s daughter should be considered for genetic testing
C. An ICD is likely to be the safest option
D. If her daughter has a normal ECG she can be reassured that she does not have long QT syndrome
E. No further investigation is necessary

2. A 61-year-old with a history of a myocardial infarction 2 years
ago with a known ejection fraction of 25% presents to A&E with
a 2 hour history of mild palpitations. He is otherwise fit and well.
His ECG monitoring shows a regular broad complex tachycardia
at a rate of 170 bpm which self-terminated before a 12-lead
ECG was performed. His U&Es are normal. The patient’s blood
pressure was 130/90 mmHg during the tachycardia and he was
not unduly distressed. He is transferred to CCU where a 12-lead
ECG shows LBBB with a QRS duration of 100 ms.
A. He needs an ICD
B. He needs an urgent revascularization
C. He needs an EP study
D. He tolerated his tachycardia well; therefore it is likely to be an SVT with aberrancy
E. He should be commenced on flecainide

3. A patient with previous myocardial infarction, an ejection fraction
of 25%, and a QRS duration of 140 ms, but no history of cardiac
arrest, is seen in clinic and an ICD is recommended. She is
concerned about driving.
What is it appropriate to tell her?
A. She will need to stop driving for 6 months
B. She will need to stop driving for 1 month
