The following ECG's are from an 84 yr old male who presented following an episode of syncope in which he sustained a head injury. 
The initial ECG was taken on presentation to the Emergency Department and the second ECG was performed several hours later. The patient was asymptomatic on both occasions with a normal blood pressure.
