ABSTRACT
Symptomatic bradycardia might be regarded as a serious emergency disease and it requires prompt emergency treatments. The American Heart Association has recommended transcutaneous pacing as a gold standard of treatment and also atropine, epinephrine or dopamine as the first line drugs. We report here on a case of symptomatic bradycardia that was treated with norepinephrine and the patient was not treated with pacing, atropine and dopamine.
Key words: Bradycardia, Norepinephrine, Hospital emergency service, Therapeutics
