A 69-year-old male presented to the Emergency Department (ED) with a left comminuted femur fracture. Manipulation of the fractured leg resulted in profound bradycardia, necessitating cessation of the procedure in the ED. Various causes of sinus bradycardia, including vagal-mediated responses, as well as management of vagal-mediated bradycardia are discussed.
