Given the shortcom- ings of chronic antiarrythmic therapy 200 mg aciclovir overnight delivery, in terms of side effects and recidivism rates buy aciclovir 400mg line, electrophysiologic interventions are likely to become more widespread. It was previously thought that the use of antiarrhythmic agents to maintain a sinus rhythm reduced this risk. Interestingly, the rhythm control patients who were not on warfarin experi- enced a significantly higher incidence of stroke. The type of antithrombotic therapy (either anticoagulation or antiplatelet ther- apy) used to prevent thromboembolism depends on the patient’s individual risk of having a thromboembolic event and his risk of bleeding on antithrombotic therapy. Dabigatran reduces the rate of ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, major bleeding, and overall mortality compared to warfarin. However, the drawbacks to dabigatran are its higher cost, twice daily dosing, need for adjustment in patients with renal failure, lack of an antidote, and lack of long-term safety data. The 110 mg twice daily dose is recommended for patients with increased risk of bleeding. Antiplatelet therapy consists of aspirin 75 to 325 mg daily, clopidogrel 75 mg daily, or both together. For patients with no risk factors for stroke, the current evidence shows that the risk of bleeding from aspirin likely exceeds the small benefit of decreased stroke risk. Aspirin, clopidogrel, and aspirin plus clopidogrel are all less effective in preventing stroke than warfarin. For patients who need anticoagulation but cannot take warfa- rin or dabigatran, the combination of clopidogrel plus aspirin is more effective than aspirin alone. However, this combination carries similar bleeding risks to formal anticoagulation (Table 3–7). Her blood pressure is 85/50 mm Hg and her heartbeat is 150 beats per minute and irregular. She is found to have a distal radius fracture on x-ray, which is reduced and splinted.

Thirty-day outcomes of emergency department patients under- going electrical cardioversion for atrial fibrillation or flutter. These symptoms started acutely about 1 hour prior to arrival while he was watching television. He is not taking any medications, does not smoke, and has never used any illicit drugs. His lungs are clear to auscultation, and his heart sounds are regular without any murmurs, rubs, or gallops. There is no lower extremity edema, and peripheral pulses are equal in all four extremities. Prepare for synchronized cardioversion of this unstable patient with a tachyarrhythmia. Recognize the clinical signs and symptoms to differentiate between stable and unstable patients with regular rate tachycardias. Considerations When evaluating a patient with a tachyarrhythmia, assessment of the patient’s stabil- ity is paramount. Regular rate tachy- cardias include several types of supraventricular tachycardia and ventricular tachycardia (Table 4–1). Other symptoms may suggest a component of hypoperfusion (dizziness, near syncope, or syncope) or cardiac ischemia (chest pain, dyspnea).
