Adenosine in wide complex tachycardia: potential pitfalls in diagnostic value.

Abstract

Adenosine is an efficacious diagnostic and therapeutic agent in the acute management of wide complex tachycardias. Its potent negative dromotropic effect terminates supraventricular tachycardias involving the atrioventricular node, allowing differentiation from tachycardias of atrial and ventricular origin. Its extranodal actions, however, may lead to… (More)
