Abstract: The best evidence about the diagnostic evaluation of resting tachycardias in adults is currently outlined by practice guidelines. 1 Initial evaluation includes clinical history, physical examination, and 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). If the initial evaluation suggests a sinus tachycardia with narrow QRS complexes and no identifiable secondary cause, a 24-hour Holter monitor is usually recommended (strength of recommendation: C, based on expert opinion).
