Parenteral magnesium has been used for several decades in the empiric treatment of various arrhythmias, but the data on its electrophysiologic effects in man are limited. We evaluated the electrophysiologic effects of magnesium sulfate (MgSO4) administration in eight normomagnesemic patients with normal mononuclear cell magnesium content, who had no clinically significant heart disease and had normal baseline electrophysiologic properties. After administration of intravenous MgSO4, serum… CONTINUE READING
