Re: vaso-vagal resulting in asystole?

From: Thomas Stewart



You are not alone- I was told that I 'flatlined' during tilt-table tests. CPR administered & the whole 9 yards. I do wear a heart monitor (wireless from Mio) My awake/ resting HR can go into the low 40s.

when hiking or on an airplane- you might see your HR dropping before your black out. Please see my 10-22 posting as well.

Good luck Thomas
