Ca channel antagonists (CCA) including verapamil and diltiazem work as antiarrhythmic drugs. Because CCA suppresses conduction through atrio-ventricular (AV) node, it is effective on both AV reciprocating tachycardia (AVRT) and AV nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). It is also useful to reduce ventricular response during atrial fibrillation/flutter… CONTINUE READING
