This agent is recommended for termination of narrow and wide QRS-complex tachycardias of unknown cause in the setting of hemodynamic stability [1-6]. However, anecdotal experience suggests that adenosine can precipitate atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter [7-14]. The frequency of adenosine-induced atrial arrhythmias has not been well defined. We therefore sought to identify the frequency… CONTINUE READING
