Answer

Drug initiation in an outpatient setting is generally accepted in patients without underlying structural heart disease who are in sinus rhythm. In addition, many specialists initiate outpatient drug therapy in patients with therapeutically anticoagulated atrial flutter who are awaiting outpatient electrical cardioversion in the near future.
