A 28-year-old man with no known heart disease, but a history of occasional palpitations which he states he is able to terminate by performing a valsalva maneuver, presents to the emergency room with an episode of palpitations that did not terminate as usual. By the time he arrived he stated that the palpitations had resolved, but while an ECG was recorded the symptoms recurred.
