Answer

An immediate cardiology consultation is warranted if the patient has presyncope, syncope, hypotension with tachycardia, angina, or other evidence of instability at the time of evaluation.

Conditions appropriate for consideration of RF catheter ablation and referral to an electrophysiologist include the following:

  • Failure of pharmacologic therapy to control symptoms
  • Recurrence of any signs of hemodynamic instability or of intolerable symptoms under medical management
  • Patient's desire to avoid daily medication
  • Intolerable adverse effects of medication
