Was surprised not to see Mel's mnemonic DIE (drugs, ischemia, electrolytes) as a differential for bradycardia on the summary.
It might also be helpful to consider sepsis in the differential - it can present with bradycardia.
Thanks again for excellent review.

Can't tell if it's Mobitz 1 or 2 since it's 2:1. Call it second degree heart block.

Can we give in adrenaline for bradycardia in a setting of acute myocardial infarction.
Because it increases the myocardial contractility and increase oxygen consumption which may be harmful.
