In the literature, there have been reports that lightning may cause myocardial injury and arrhythmias such as conductive disorders, atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, and asystole (5-7).
The magnet can be occasionally ineffective or cause asystole in pacemaker dependency, as in our case.
The survival and discharge rates of the patients who were determined to have sinus tachycardia and bradycardia at the scene were statistically higher than those who were determined to have fatal rhythms (VF, PVT, asystole, and PEA) (p=0.
Editor's Note: Nonshockable rhythms are defined as pulseless electrical activity and asystole, which are not treatable by defibrillation.
The patient was in cyanosed and asystole condition at first.
We surmise that this resulted in subtle cardiac changes that predisposed the patient to asystole when exposed to the cardiac stress induced by nonconvulsive MECT.
Although the most common arrhythmia seen in these patients is sinus tachycardia, at least 5%-10% of patients with temporal lobe seizures develop slowing of their heart rate, some to the level of bradycardia and even asystole (Koseoglu et al.

13) Unfortunately, women who are stricken by SCA are more likely to present pulse-less electrical activity or asystole compared with men, making successful resuscitation more difficult.
