Duration less than 12 hours was significantly associated with greater effectiveness It is also used in the emergent treatment of wide complex tachycardias, including ventricular tachycardiawhen a pulse is present.

Class IV drugs are calcium Ca channel blockers. The pads are placed on the chest of the patient, or one is placed on the chest and one on the back.

Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. There are various classes of agents that are most effective for pharmacological cardioversion. Class Ic greatly slow phase 0 depolarization in the ventricles however unlike 1a have no effect on the refractory period. After the procedure, the patient is monitored to ensure stability of the sinus rhythm.


Vernakalant is effective and safe for restoring sinus rhythm in the hospital emergency department. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Not all cwrdioversion blockers are the same; some are cardio selective affecting only beta 1 receptors while others are non-selective affecting beta 1 and 2 receptors.

Adverse events were reported for 30 patients. Defibrillation uses a therapeutic dose of electric current to the heart at a random moment in the cardiac cycleand is the most effective resuscitation measure for cardiac arrest associated with ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia. Flecainidemoricizine and propafenone are Class Ic agents. They also decrease cardiac oxygen demand and can prevent cardiac remodeling.

Synchronized electrical cardioversion is used to treat hemodynamically unstable supraventricular or narrow complex tachycardiasincluding atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter. Having no prior history of AF was nonsignificantly related to greater effectiveness in Beta blockers that target the beta-1 receptor are called cardio selective because beta-1 is responsible for increasing heart rate; hence a beta blocker will slow the heart rate.

None of the events had clinically important consequences, and in only 2 cases 1. Ibutilide is another Class III agent but has a different mechanism of action acts to promote influx of sodium through slow-sodium channels. It has been shown to be effective in acute cardioversion of recent-onset atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter. When synchronized electrical cardioversion farmacologkca performed as an elective procedure, the shocks can vardioversion performed in conjunction with drug therapy until sinus rhythm is attained.

Prospective multicenter cohort study enrolling consecutive patients who were administered vernakalant for medical cardioversion of AF between September through March in 5 hospitals in the Spanish autonomous community of Valencia.

Various antiarrhythmic agents can be used to return the heart to normal sinus rhythm. The median time to conversion was 8 minutes after a first dose and 34 minutes after a second dose.

Cardioversion with vernakalant was effective in Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

However, if the patient is hemodynamically unstable or unconscious, the shock is given immediately upon confirmation of the arrhythmia.
