Answer

Cardiovascular, Other

It may be necessary to use antiarrhythmic agents for concomitant tachyarrhythmia.

Quinidine

Quinidine maintains normal heart rhythm following cardioversion of atrial fibrillation or flutter. It depresses myocardial excitability and conduction velocity. Control the ventricular rate and CHF (if present) with digoxin or calcium channel blockers before the administration of quinidine.
