Answer

Cardiac auscultation and palpation of peripheral pulses reveal a slow, regular heart rate.

The physical examination is generally nonspecific, although it may reveal the following signs:

  • Decreased level of consciousness

  • Cyanosis

  • Peripheral edema

  • Pulmonary vascular congestion

  • Dyspnea

  • Poor perfusion

  • Syncope
