Electrical cardioversion is an effective treatment for termination of ventricular tachycardia (VT)1,2 but is typically performed with procedural sedation, and thus involves associated risk. In hemodynamically stable VT, pharmacologic cardioversion is an option. Historically, lidocaine, amiodarone, procainamide, and sotalol have been used for pharmacologic cardioversion, based mostly upon expert opinion. This article is protected by copyright.
