Severe Bradycardia Following Electrical Cardioversion for Atrial Tachyarrhythmias in Patients

Electrical Cardioversion

Symptomatic bradycardia is an uncommon complication following electrical cardioversion for an atrial tachyar­rhythmia. In patients with acute myocardial infarction, atrial tachyarrhythmia associated with hemodynamic com­promise or worsening of ischemia requires electrical cardi­oversion. We describe three patients who developed severe bradycardia following electrical cardioversion for an atrial tachyarrhythmia in the setting of an acute myocardial infarction.
