I recently encountered this very issue where a patient admitted for another reason was being monitored and had a pacemaker. This article spoke to the exact issue I encountered. I questioned whether what I was seeing on the monitor was normal for this patient. I would've like a little more information on the EKG assessment normal/not and when to be concerned.
