Abstract
The objectives of the study is to understand cardioversion and difference between cardioversion and defibrillation, pre and post procedure safety checks, AHA guidelines for anticoagulation therapy, keys to safe and successful cardioversion and precautions to be considered for patients with devices. Cardioversion is a frequently performed procedure to terminate atrial arrhythmias commonly atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter, to relieve symptoms and improve cardiac performance. In simple terms, an electrical shock is delivered to patient’s chest wall during cardioversion to restore the heart back to normal sinus rhythm. It involves the delivery of high energy shock through the chest wall muscles to the heart to interrupt abnormal electrical currents to restore it to normal sinus rhythm. Prior to performing this procedure, there are several safety checks undertaken in terms of anticoagulation. There is a 48 hours safety window for cardioversion without appropriate anticoagulation and the need for continuation of appropriate anticoagulation for 4-6 weeks after cardioversion. The AHA guidelines for a safe and successful cardioversion will be discussed in this presentation.
