Electrophysiologic properties and antiarrhythmic mechanisms of intravenous N-acetylprocainamide in patients with ventricular dysrhythmias.

Abstract

To define electrophysiologic properties and antiarrhythmic mechanisms of N-acetylprocainamide (NAPA), we studied 16 patients with symptomatic ventricular dysrhythmias. Electrophysiologic studies were performed before and after intravenous infusion of NAPA at 20 mg/kg over 20 minutes, achieving plasma concentrations of 24 +/- 3.2 to 35.5 +/- 4.5 micrograms… (More)
