cordarone drug card

Rhythm control therapy improves the quality of life in properly selected patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Sodium channel blockers are recommended as a first-line therapy for lone paroxysmal AF. Pilsicainide, a pure sodium channel blocker is the most frequently used drug in Japan. In addition to amiodarone, several reports performed in Japan described defibrillating effect of bepridil. These two drugs are considered as first choice for rhythm control treatment to lone persistent AF. Since sodium channel blockers increase mortality in patients with reduced cardiac function, amiodarone or bepridil are recommended for rhythm control in AF accompanied with structural heart disease. However, sufficient treatment for underlying heart disease is required prior to administration of antiarrhythmic drugs.

cordarone overdose death

Amiodarone (AM) is a potent antidysrhythmic agent that is limited in clinical use by its adverse effects, including potentially life-threatening AM-induced pulmonary toxicity (AIPT). The present study tested the ability of dietary supplementation with vitamin E (500 IU d,1-alpha-tocopherol acetate/kg chow) to protect against pulmonary damage following intratracheal administration of AM (1.83 micromol) to the male golden Syrian hamster. At 21 days post-dosing, animals treated with AM had increased lung hydroxyproline content and histological disease index values compared to control (P < 0.05), which were indicative of fibrosis. Dietary vitamin E supplementation for 6 weeks resulted in a 234% increase in lung vitamin E content at the time of AM dosing, and maintenance on the diet prevented AM-induced elevation of hydroxyproline content and disease index 21 days post-dosing. Dietary vitamin E supplementation also decreased hydroxyproline content and disease index values in hamsters treated intratracheally with distilled water, the AM vehicle. These results demonstrate a protective role for vitamin E in an in vivo model of AIPT, and suggest that this antioxidant may have non-specific antifibrotic effects in the lung.

Three emergency medical services systems serving the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area participated in the protocol. Inclusion criteria included age 18 to 75 years, body habitus accommodating automated Lund University Cardiac Arrest System (LUCAS) cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and estimated transfer time from the scene to the cardiac catheterization laboratory of ≤30 minutes. Exclusion criteria included known terminal illness, Do Not Resuscitate/Do Not Intubate status, traumatic arrest, and significant bleeding. Refractory VF/VT arrest was defined as failure to achieve sustained return of spontaneous circulation after treatment with 3 direct current shocks and administration of 300 mg of intravenous/intraosseous amiodarone. Patients were transported to the University of Minnesota, where emergent advanced perfusion strategies (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation; ECMO), followed by coronary angiography and primary coronary intervention (PCI), were performed, when appropriate. Over the first 3 months of the protocol, 27 patients were transported with ongoing mechanical CPR. Of these, 18 patients met the inclusion and exclusion criteria. ECMO was placed in 83%. Seventy-eight percent of patients had significant coronary artery disease with a high degree of complexity and 67% received PCI. Seventy-eight percent of patients survived to hospital admission and 55% (10 of 18) survived to hospital discharge, with 50% (9 of 18) achieving good neurological function (cerebral performance categories 1 and 2). No significant ECMO-related complications were encountered.

Atrial fibrillation developed in 28 patients in group 1A, whereas it developed in 12 in group 1B (P=0.005). Atrial flutter developed in 10 patients in group 1A but in 3 patients in group 1B (P=0.045). Multifocal atrial tachycardia developed in 13 patients in group 1A and in 4 in group 1B (P=0.022). Multivariate analysis identified ejection fraction (P<0.002, odds ratio (OR) 0.93), inotropy requirement (P<0.001, OR 3.98) amiodarone (P<0.001, OR 0.18), and FEV(1)<75% of predicted value (P<0.048, OR 1.84) as predictor of SVT. There were statistically significant differences between A and B subgroups of group 1 for hospital (P<0.001) and intensive care unit (ICU) stay (P<0.001). There was also statistically significant difference between groups 1A and 2 comparison for ICU (P<0.001; 6.4+/-3.4 versus 1.4+/-0.6 days) and hospital stay (P<0.001; 17.6+/-8.2 versus 6.9+/-0.6 days).

cordarone max dose

Observational study over a 10-year period. Seventy-one out of 2651 patients (2,885 procedures, 2,106 bypass procedures) received amiodarone therapy for newly detected postoperative tachyarrhythmias. All patients received catecholamine infusions as standard post-op therapy to support cardiac function and output. In most cases a loading dose of amiodarone was given over 1-4 h followed by a continuous infusion. Catecholamine infusion dose requirements were monitored as was heart rate, blood pressure, central venous pressure, and sedation dose requirements pre treatment and at 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 12 and 24 h after the begin of the amiodarone administration.

cordarone reviews

Negative tracheal pressure (NTP) during tracheal obstruction in obstructive apnea increases vagal tone and causes pronounced shortening of the atrial effective refractory period (AERP), thereby perpetuating atrial fibrillation (AF). The role of different atrial potassium channels under those conditions has not been investigated.

Dronedarone is recommended as the successor drug to amiodarone because a faster onset of effects and less side effects are to be expected. This review describes the pharmacological properties of this multi-channel blocker and summarizes the results from recent studies proving successful antiarrhythmic therapy using dronedarone in patients with atrial fibrillation.

cordarone 800 mg

Amiodarone causes phospholipid storage in the lysosomes of various types of lung cell in animals and man. It has been proposed that this is due to its ability to inhibit lysosomal phospholipase A. To investigate this further, a crude lysosomal fraction from rat lung was prepared and phospholipase A was isolated and its positional specificity was determined. Analysis of the products formed after incubation with 2-[1-14C]oleoylphosphatidylcholine showed that only phospholipase A1 activity is present. This soluble preparation of lung lysosomal phospholipase A1 was used to study inhibition by amiodarone and desethylamiodarone, in vitro. Both were extremely potent inhibitors of the lung acid phospholipase A1. To evaluate the levels of amiodarone in lung lysosomes, rats were treated with the agent for 3 days and the combined mitochondrial/lysosomal fraction of lung tissue was prepared by differential centrifugation. This fraction had been shown previously to be highly enriched in amiodarone. Purified mitochondria and lysosomes were isolated from the combined mitochondrial/lysosomal fraction with Percoll gradients and analyzed for their drug content by HPLC. Amiodarone and desethylamiodarone were present in roughly equal amounts, relative to protein, in mitochondria and lysosomes, respectively. Amiodarone appears to differ from other cationic amphiphilic drugs which cause lipidosis because the latter are more highly lysosomotropic. Although amiodarone does not appear to be highly lysosomotropic in lung, it causes lysosomal phospholipid storage because of its ability to concentrate in lung and because it inhibits lysosomal phospholipase A to a much greater extent than other cationic amphiphiles such as diethylaminoethoxyhexestrol, chloroquine and chlorphentermine.

ICDs decreased deaths during the 5 years from 37.0% to 29.7% at a net cost of euro26,222 to euro20,008 per patient, yielding cost-benefit ratios of 0.17 (UK) and 0.14 (France)-more than a 5 to 1 return on investment. Sensitivity analyses showed ICDs represent value for money whenever a life is valued at least at euro274,000.

cordarone overdose

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is common in ICU patients and is associated with a two- to fivefold increase in mortality. This paper provides a reappraisal of the management of AF with a special focus on critically ill patients with haemodynamic instability. AF can cause hypotension and heart failure with subsequent organ dysfunction. The underlying mechanisms are the loss of atrial contraction and the high ventricular rate. In unstable patients, sinus rhythm must be rapidly restored by synchronised electrical cardioversion (ECV). If pharmacological treatment is indicated, clinicians can choose between the rate control and the rhythm control strategy. The optimal substance should be selected depending on its potential adverse effects. A beta-1 antagonist with a very short half-life (e.g., esmolol) is an advantage for ICU patients because the effect of beta-blockade on cardiovascular stability is unpredictable in those patients. Amiodarone is commonly used in the ICU setting but has potentially severe cardiac and noncardiac side effects. Digoxin controls the ventricular response at rest, but its benefit decreases in the presence of adrenergic stress. Vernakalant converts new-onset AF to sinus rhythm in approximately 50% of patients, but data on its efficacy and safety in critically ill patients are lacking.

The total atrial conduction time (TACT) is an important electrophysiological parameter. We developed a new transthoracic echocardiographic tool (PA-TDI). The PA-TDI interval is a reflection of the TACT. In the present study, we evaluated the clinical and echocardiographic correlates of intra-atrial conduction delay.

We investigated whether defibrillation thresholds (DFTs) could be measured more safely during defibrillator implantation by measuring the upper limit of vulnerability (ULV) without using any special equipment. Nonthoracotomy ICD implantation with endocardial leads was performed in 13 patients, and through the use of the ICD function itself, ULV and DFT were measured using the delayed four-episode up-down algorithm. Myocardial injures caused by high-energy current were assessed by electrocardiograms and serial CPK-MB. ULV was confirmed in all cases, and it strongly correlated with DFT. The average ULV was 5.9 +/- 3.3 J, while the average DFT was 7.9 +/- 4.3 J (r = 0.89, p < 0.0001, DFT = 1.20+1.14x ULV). The average ULV was thus significantly lower (p < 0.01). Although six patients were on amiodarone therapy, the strong correlation between ULV and DFT was also maintained (r = 0.97), p < 0.01) in these patients. In all cases, the CPK-MB failed to increase, and no myocardial injuries were detectable on electrocardiograms. We confirmed that ULV could be easily and safety measured during ICD implantation, and that ULV could be used instead of DFT.

Serum determinations of total T4, total T3, reverse T3, free T3 index, free T4, free T4 index, TBG, T4/TBG ratio, TSH and cholesterol were carried out on 18 euthyroid patients with coronary heart disease. Serum samples were obtained before treatment and after 15 days, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16 months of treatment with amiodarone (400 mg/day). Patients were divided into two groups, according to patterns of TSH response to thyrotrophin-releasing hormone (TRH): (I) patients with normal responses (n = 12), and (II) patients with subnormal responses (n = 6). Patients of group I showed total T4, free T4 and reverse T3 increments and total T3 and free T3 index decreases, whereas patients of group II were distinguished by the absence of T3 decreases and a rise in free T4 levels that showed a significant correlation with a drop in serum cholesterol (r = -0.767; p. less than 0.001). No patient of either group showed clinical signs of thyroid dysfunction. These results show that the appearance of hormonal patterns of hyperthyroidism is unpredictable and very frequent in patients with no previous thyroid abnormalities undergoing long-term treatment with the drug.

cordarone 50 mg

Amiodarone, a complex compound with variegated electropharmacologic and pharmacokinetic properties and an equally complex side-effect profile, continues to have a critical role in the control of ventricular and supraventricular tachyarrhythmias as the use of class I agents has declined. Such is also the case with sotalol. Unlike other so-called class III agents, amiodarone non-competitively blocks sympathetic stimulation, and its effects on repolarization are not associated with reverse use dependency. Rarely does it produce torsades de pointes despite its propensity to induce significant bradycardia and marked prolongation of the QT interval. During long-term therapy with the drug, there is no impairment of ventricular function; in fact, there are significant increases in the left ventricular ejection fraction during protracted amiodarone therapy in patients with heart failure. Long-term amiodarone administration consistently demonstrates marked efficacy in a wide spectrum of arrhythmias. The major limitation of amiodarone during long-term therapy is its unusual side-effect profile, although the increasing trend for low-dose drug therapy has demonstrated a major decline in the overall incidence of serious adverse reactions. Amiodarone is effective in controlling symptomatic ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation (VT/VF) in > 60-70% of patients when conventional agents (especially class I) are ineffective or not well tolerated. The efficacy of amiodarone compared with that of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator in patients with VT/VF and in survivors of cardiac arrest remains uncertain when total mortality is used as the primary endpoint of comparison. Amiodarone suppresses ventricular ectopy and markedly suppresses nonsustained VT. It prevents inducible VT/VF in a small number of patients, but slows VT rate in a larger number. The role of the drug in prolonging survival in the postmyocardial infarction patient is unclear, although preliminary data from blinded studies suggest that the drug decreases arrhythmia-related mortality. Similarly, in heart failure, amiodarone has the potential to reduce total mortality but appears to be selectively effective in nonischemic rather than in ischemic cardiomyopathy. Intravenous amiodarone was recently introduced in the United States for the control of recurrent destabilizing VT or VF resistant to conventional therapy. There is also evolving data indicating that the drug might be the most potent agent in maintaining sinus rhythm in patients with atrial fibrillation or flutter converted chemically or electrically to sinus rhythm. However, blinded controlled comparative studies involving sotalol, quinidine, or pure class III drugs have not been carried out. The available data nevertheless suggest that, barring its side-effect profile, amiodarone is a desirable prototype of a broad-spectrum antifibrillatory and antiarrhythmic compound.

cordarone tablet 2017-04-18

The antiarrhythmic effect of an 8-week oral amiodarone regimen was studied in dogs with 1-week-old myocardial infarction and reproducibly inducible sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) or ventricular fibrillation (VF). Eighteen dogs were randomly assigned to receive either amiodarone, 40 mg/kg/day for 10 days, followed by 30 mg/kg/day for 4 days and then 20 mg/kg/day for 6 weeks (N = 9), or placebo (N = 9). Programmed electrical stimulation was conducted weekly in the two treatment groups. Plasma concentrations of amiodarone and desethylamiodarone were determined weekly, and their myocardial concentrations in the noninfarcted and infarcted regions of the left ventricle were measured at the end of the study. Suppression of inducible arrhythmias was observed at weeks 1,3-7, and 8 in the amiodarone-treated dogs, whereas no suppression occurred in the placebo-treated group. Plasma amiodarone concentration was maximal at 2.5 +/- 1 buy cordarone .4 micrograms/ml at week 2, decreased to 1.9 +/- 1.1 micrograms/ml at week 3, and remained steady thereafter. Plasma desethylamiodarone concentrations were in the range of 0.2 +/- 0.1 to 0.4 +/- 0.2 microgram/ml from weeks 1 through 8. Myocardial amiodarone and desethylamiodarone concentrations in the noninfarcted region of the left ventricle were 34.0 +/- 15.8 and 20.8 +/- 7.8 micrograms/g, respectively, at the end of the study. The lack of antiarrhythmic effect of amiodarone at week 2 coincided with the highest plasma amiodarone concentration. The data indicate that this dog model of ventricular arrhythmias is useful for studying the antiarrhythmic action of amiodarone.

A two year-old female who had underwent ABO-incompatible heart transplantation at four months of age was admitted with unexplained anemia and renal dysfunction. The patient also had evidence of moderate liver dysfunction. Maintenance immunosuppression consisted of tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil and prednisolone. Tacrolimus was held on day 2 for five days because of an elevated trough blood concentration. The patient required one fourth of her maintenance dose to keep trough concentrations within the target range. Nadolol and amiodarone were prescribed on day 7 to control ventricular arrhythmias. Sirolimus was prescribed on day 11. A precautionary (non-steady-state) sirolimus trough concentration was grossly elevated. Sirolimus was held and tacrolimus was discontinued. Sirolimus blood concentrations remained above the target range for fourteen days buy cordarone despite successive dose manipulations. The patient succumbed from complications of ECMO on day 42. Amiodarone and cyclosporine interactions in the solid organ transplant population have been previously described. To our knowledge, there are no cases of amiodarone and sirolimus or tacrolimus interactions reported in English literature. Both tacrolimus and sirolimus are metabolized through the same enzyme system as cyclosporine, and the chance of a similar interaction occurring is high. Sirolimus is also a substrate of p-glycoprotein and thus may be significantly affected by amiodarone. We have described a potential interaction with sirolimus, tacrolimus and amiodarone. If amiodarone is deemed the most appropriate choice for the patient, clinicians should consider prospectively decreasing sirolimus and tacrolimus doses. Blood concentrations should also be monitored more frequently in order to minimize prolonged periods of supratherapeutic concentrations and related toxicities.

The recommended daily intake of iodide, is 150 μg for adolescents and adults, 250 μg buy cordarone for pregnancy and lactation. Thyroid gland is an effective collector of iodine. The active iodine uptake along the basolateral membrane of thyroid cell is followed by its transport to the apical edge of the cell and then to the follicle lumen. TSH acts through cAMP and stimulates NIS gene expression and protein synthesis. The major proportion of iodine in the thyroid gland is bound to Thyroglobulin. The non-organic intrathyroidal iodine is usually low, but significantly greater compared to plasma. Large doses of iodine reduce both the uptake and the organification (Wolff-Chaikoff effect) and cause partial inhibition of Tg proteolysis. The thyroid gland has several protective mechanisms resulting on the maintenance of normal thyroid function despite wide fluctuations of the daily iodine intake. Ingestion of several commonly used drugs and food conservatives results in acute or chronic excessive iodine intake. Failure to escape from the iodine induced organification inhibition can cause hypothyroidism, which is temporary and subsides after iodine exposure ceases. Iodine excess may also establish a status of excessive thyroid hormone synthesis and release, thus inducing autonomic thyroid function in iodopenic areas or can contribute to the development of iodine-induced hyperthyroidism in iodine abundant areas. The anti-arrhythmic Amiodarone, is a benzofuranic product with a very high iodine content, is associated with either hypo- or hyperthyroidism development. In the presence of defective auto-protective mechanisms, excessive iodine ingestion can divert the normal thyroid function.

Inhibition of IKr by azimilide, quinidine, dofetilide and sotalol was diminished by increasing [K(+)](e), while the inhibition by amiodarone was unchanged at normal and high [K(+)](e). The buy cordarone differential effects of azimilide, dofetilide, quinidine and sotalol at normal and high [K(+)](e) could be pro-arrhythmic by favoring re-entry arrhythmias. These results further support the unique electrophysiological effect of amiodarone.

Symptoms of depression and fatigue overlap in patients with MI. The trend for the cognitive-affective symptoms of depression to be associated with SCD risk, even after controlling for dyspnea/fatigue, suggests that the association between depression and mortality after AMI cannot be entirely explained as a confound of cardiac-related fatigue. The independent contribution of social participation suggests a role buy cordarone of both depressive symptomatology and social factors in influencing mortality risk after MI.

The effects of procainamide, mexiletine, and amiodarone on automaticity, conduction, and refractoriness were studied in a model of heterotopic heart transplantation in dogs that combined an innervated heart (recipient) and a denervated transplanted heart (donor). After the surgical procedure, 500 mg procainamide (n = 13), 200 mg plus 0.1 mg/kg per minute mexiletine (n = 10), or 150 mg amiodarone (n = 10) was administered intravenously. During a baseline period and after drug administration, each heart was assessed for atrioventricular interval; cycle length; sinoatrial conduction time; atrioventricular node anterograde and retrograde block points; atrioventricular node and ventricular antegrade effective refractory periods; PR, QRS, and QT intervals on electrocardiogram; systemic arterial, pulmonary arterial, central venous, and pulmonary capillary buy cordarone wedge pressures; and cardiac output. In recipients, procainamide reduced cardiac output, depressed sinus automaticity, slowed conduction time without affecting the QRS interval, and prolonged the nodal and ventricular refractoriness; in donor hearts, it depressed automaticity and prolonged nodal refractoriness, but did not modify conduction or ventricular refractoriness. Mexiletine only moderately depressed sinus automaticity in recipient hearts; it did not affect the other parameters either in recipient or transplanted hearts, nor did it alter the hemodynamic situation. Amiodarone produced hypotension, reduced cardiac output, and prolonged all the electrophysiologic intervals except the QRS interval in recipient hearts. These changes were even more pronounced in the transplanted hearts and led to extreme sinus bradycardia in four cases. Of these three drugs, mexiletine appears to be the safest should treatment for arrhythmias be necessary in transplant recipients.

68 patients with rhythmical disorders unresponsive to treatment with one or several antiarrhythmics (quinidine derivatives 52 patients, amiodarone 28 patients, beta-blockers 24 patients) were treated by mouth with propafenone, with a mean postponement of 5.6 +/- 8.5 months (1 day to 33 months). Auricular arrhythmia was observed in 41 patients with the following results: 16 successes among the 24 patients with paroxysmal fibrillation of flutter, 3 successes among the 8 patients with an arrhythmia reduced by cardioversion, and 3 successes among the 9 patients with auricular tachycardia, including 6 systolic tachycardias. Of 8 patients with an intranodal reciprocal rhythm, 7 were treated successfully with propafenone, which acts on the retrograde part of the cycle. Successes were also recorded in 2 out of 3 patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. In 19 cases of ventricular tachycardia, propafenone proved to be efficacious in 3 out of 5 cases presenting rapid buy cordarone discharges and in 7 out of 14 patients with continuous arrhythmias, notably those with a catecholaminergic component. Side-effects were digestive (5 patients), cardiac decompensation (3 patients), asthenia and asthma (1 patient) and the transformation of a flutter from 2/1 to 1/1 (1 patient).

The long-term survival of patients with sustained ventricular tachyarrhythmias after MI, with depressed LV function, is significantly better with an ICD than with amiodarone therapy Celebrex 90 Mg , even when stratified according to the results of the EP study. These patients should benefit from early ICD placement, and any previous amiodarone treatment seems to have no additional value.

Among patients, 33 (39%) converted with amiodarone alone. Of 52 patients who underwent cardioversion at six weeks, 41 (79%) converted to SR. Overall, 87% of patients converted to SR. None of the 11 patients with persistent AF could be converted to SR, despite a second attempt with direct current (DC) cardioversion at 12 weeks. Those who converted to SR had significantly shorter AF duration (AFD) (2.7+/-1.1 versus 3.2+/-0.7 years) and smaller left atrial (LA) size (50.0+/-7.7 versus 57.9+/-4.7 mm). Patient age, gender, NYHA class, ejection fraction and post-BMV variables were comparable between the two groups. Successful maintenance of Cefixime 50 Mg SR was possible in 61/74 (82%) patients at a mean follow up of 30.6+/-7.1 months (range: 16-43 months). Again, mean AFD was shorter (1.8+/-0.6 versus 3.0+/-0.7 years) and LA size smaller (48.9+/-7.5 versus 54.7+/-6.9 mm) among those who maintained SR. However, even in patients with AFD > or =2 years, successful conversion and maintenance of SR was possible in 74% and 62% of patients, respectively. Among patients with LA size > or =60 mm (n = 16), the corresponding value were 84% and 77%, respectively. On multivariate analysis, only AFD was a predictor of acute and long-term success. The probability of SR remaining in those with AFD <2 years at 21, 30 and 43 months was 96%, 95% and 94.6%, respectively, while for those with AFD > or =2 years these values were 62%, 48% and 40%.

Despite a relatively low frequency, hyperthyroid conditions in patients presenting to North Shore Hospital with AF were sufficiently prevalent to continue recommending TFT assessment in these patients. Although the majority of AF patients were being adequately screened with TFT, a significant proportion was not, and those with abnormalities Clomid Dosing were not well followed up.

Previous studies indicate that increased serum total and free T4 levels may be secondary to a proportionally greater decrease in serum T4 clearance rates than in production rates after short-term amiodarone administration, to increased T4 production rates as well as reduced serum clearance rates in selective hyperthyroxinemia without overt hyperthyroidism following chronic amiodarone administration, and to a relatively greater increase in T4 production rates than in clearance rates in classical hyperthyroidism. To further evaluate amiodarone-induced alterations of T4 metabolism, serum T4 transfer and distribution were evaluated by compartmental analysis of T4 kinetic studies from eight normal subjects receiving short-term amiodarone or an equivalent amount of iodide, five patients with selective hyperthyroxinemia induced by chronic amiodarone therapy (n = 4) or ioxithalamic acid (n = 1), and five with classical hyperthyroidism. The model consisted of rapidly and slowly equilibrating pools exchanging with serum, with all losses occurring from the tissue pools. Short-term amiodarone administration reduced the fractional T4 transfer rates between serum and the rapidly equilibrating pool to 82% of baseline. In selective hyperthyroxinemia the fractional rates of T4 transfer between serum and both extravascular pools were increased sixfold, whereas minimal alterations were present in the hyperthyroid group. The serum equivalent volume of T4 distribution in the slow pool was significantly reduced Prograf Vs Generic following short-term amiodarone, whereas serum and rapid pool volumes were reduced in selective hyperthyroxinemia and slow pool volume was increased in hyperthyroidism.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Cardiotoxicity is a documented complication of Crotalinae envenomation. Reported cardiac complications following snake envenomation have included acute myocardial infarction, electrocardiogram abnormalities and arrhythmias. Few reports exist describing arrhythmia induced by viper envenomation and to our Glucotrol Diabetic Pills knowledge none describe arrhythmia induced by Crotalinae envenomation. This report concerns the first known case of atrial fibrillation precipitated by rattlesnake bite.

Amiodarone, a wide spectrum antiarrhythmic agent, has been Diamox Tablets associated with hypotensive reactions in man as well as in dogs after intravenous use. This hypotensive effect has been attributed to Tween 80, the diluent in the commercially available form of amiodarone. We studied the electrophysiologic effects of Tween 80 in the cardiac conduction system of the dog. Electrophysiologic studies were conducted in anesthetized adult dogs before and after the administration of 10 and 20 mg/kg of Tween 80, equivalent to the amount of diluent in 5 and 10 mg/kg respectively of commercial intravenous amiodarone. In addition to a drop of 60% in systolic blood pressure and 66% in diastolic blood pressure (p less than 0.005), 10 mg/kg of Tween 80 induced a decrease in heart rate (sinus cycle length increased from 523 +/- 57 msec to 662 +/- 27 msec, p less than 0.025), prolongation of sinus node recovery time (652 +/- 77 msec to 804 +/- 45 msec, p less than 0.05), depression of AV nodal function manifested by induction of Wenckebach at longer cycle length (from 208 +/- 18 msec to 266 +/- 14 msec, p less than 0.005), and increase in atrial ERP (from 138 +/- 7 msec to 176 +/- 14 msec, p less than 0.025) and FRP (from 180 +/- 14 msec to 209 +/- 12 msec, p less than 0.025). No further significant changes were observed after the second Tween 80 dose. The ventricular ERP increased significantly (from 168 +/- 18 msec to 20 +/- 16 msec, p less than 0.025) following the 20 mg/kg dose. It is demonstrated that Tween 80 is a potent depressant of the cardiac conduction system in the dog, capable of causing electrophysiologic changes similar to those produced by amiodarone in humans and dogs.
