Elective Cardioversion of Atrial Flutter Part I
This patient was admitted with a SVT. She received adenosine 6 mg and 12 mg without conversion of the rhythm. However, the adenosine did clarify the rhythm as an atrial flutter. She was managed with a calcium channel blocker and anticoagulated. An echo was done and no atrial clots were noted. She underwent elective cardioversion and was successfully cardioverted after two attempts.
