There were a couple of comments to the last post on Semantics that made me question whether or not it was proper to do a large workup on a young patient with tachycardia.
So I decided to create a poll to get everyone else’s opinion.
Assume that the patient’s use of K2 was disclosed. In a 17 year old (i.e. “young”) patient with persistent tachycardia unresponsive to treatment who uses synthetic marijuana, what testing should be performed?
