Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with a higher incidence of mortality, stroke, and coronary events than is sinus rhythm. Immediate cardioversion should be performed in patients with AF and acute myocardial infarction, chest pain, hypotension, severe heart failure, or syncope. Pharmacologic treatments include beta-adrenergic blockade, calcium channel blockers, and amiodarone in selected patients.
