ABSTRACT

Arthur Lee, 60, arrives at the emergency department (ED) by ambulance after an episode of “faintness” at his job. He experienced a brief loss of consciousness associated with nausea and diaphoresis. Fortunately, he sustained no injuries related to the syncopal episode. A coworker who witnessed the episode called the ambulance because he was concerned that Mr. Lee's signs and symptoms indicated a myocardial infarction (MI), although Mr. Lee didn't have chest pain.
