A 85-year-old man was admitted having had a fall preceded by a sudden onset of dizziness and loss of balance. After the fall, he had been unable to get up as he felt as though the room was spinning and had recurrent vomiting. On arrival in the emergency department, he felt a little better although he was still unsteady and was drowsy. There was a past medical history of atrial fibrillation and hypertension. He was taking sotalol, warfarin, bendrofluazide and isosorbide mononitrate. He was living with his wife, was usually independent, was an ex-smoker and took little alcohol.
