Introducing Vernakalant into Clinical Practice.
Arrhythm Electrophysiol Rev. 2019 Mar;8(1):70-74
Authors: Hall AJ, Mitchell AR
Vernakalant is an antiarrhythmic drug licensed for the pharmacological cardioversion of recent onset AF. Randomised clinical trials, backed up by real-world experience, have confirmed its efficacy at restoring sinus rhythm. Vernakalant can be administered simply with a short time to action, facilitating early discharge from hospital in selected patients in place of electrical cardioversion. The authors explore the data behind vernakalant and discuss how it can be introduced into clinical practice.
