The Case of the Irregular Irregularity - EM Nerd

We have proven ourselves highly capable of managing atrial fibrillation in the Emergency Department. In recent years, a number of prospective cohorts have demonstrated that with the use of IV anti-arrhythmic medication and electrical cardioversion, patients presenting to the Emergency Department with new onset atrial fibrillation can be successfully discharged in sinus rhythm consistently and with minimal adverse events. In 2010, Steill et al published a case series of 660 patients who were cardioverted in the Emergency Department (1). What they coined the “Ottawa Aggressive Protocol” consisted of chemically managed rate control followed by a trial of procainamide loaded over an hour and, if this failed to convert the patient, DC electrical cardioversion. Using this protocol, Steill et al cite the number of patients who were discharged home in normal sinus rhythm to be 595 (90.2%). In a recent systematic review published in the European Journal of Emergency Medicine, Coll-Vinent et al found that in patients who underwent Emergency Department cardioversion, 78.2%-100% were discharged home in a normal sinus rhythm (2).
