A man without cardiac symptoms was found to have a slow irregular pulse, and an electrocardiogram revealed sinus bradycardia with escape-capture bigeminy. He was taking verapamil, clonidine, and hydralazine for hypertension. The verapamil was discontinued; he returned to normal sinus rhythm and was discharged on the second hospital day.
