The diagnostic and therapeutic potential of intravenous adenosine was studied in 64 patients during 92 episodes of regular sustained tachycardia. In 40 patients who had narrow complex tachycardias (QRS less than 0.12 s) adenosine (2.5-25 mg) restored sinus rhythm in 25 with junctional tachycardias (46 of 48 episodes) and produced atrioventricular block to reveal atrial or sinus tachycardia in 15. In 24 patients with broad complex tachycardias (QRS greater than or equal to 0.12 s) adenosine… CONTINUE READING
