10/01/1996 - "Previous studies in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing intracardiac cardioversion have suggested that intracardiac cardioversion is highly effective and safe. "
12/01/2014 - "It is highly effective in the management of recurrent ventricular dysrhythmias, paroxysmal supraventricular dysrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation and flutter, and in the maintenance of sinus rhythm after electrical cardioversion of atrial fibrillation. "
02/20/2009 - "Electrical cardioversion (EC) remains the most effective treatment for the restoration of sinus rhythm in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). "
04/14/2006 - "Cardioversion for atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most effective treatment for the restoration of sinus rhythm (SR). "
07/01/2005 - "For refractory atrial fibrillation to conventional cardioversion double sequential transthoracic shocks represents a safe and highly efficacious alternative and may have a general applicability."
|2.||Atrial Flutter (Flutter, Atrial)
01/01/1997 - "Electrical cardioversion was an effective and safe method of converting chronic atrial flutter to sinus rhythm. "
02/01/2013 - "Elective direct current cardioversion is considered first-line treatment in many cases of atrial flutter and fibrillation. "
11/19/2010 - "A pilot study was performed to determine the efficacy of low energy biphasic external cardioversion in common type atrial flutter. "
12/01/2009 - "The superiority of the biphasic waveform has been demonstrated for atrial flutter, but whether electrode position affects the efficacy of cardioversion in this population is not known. "
03/01/2006 - "The efficacy of biphasic waveform cardioversion of atrial flutter in pediatric patients has not previously been demonstrated. "
|3.||Cardiac Arrhythmias (Arrythmia)
04/01/2000 - "At 1 month follow-up, the percentage of arrhythmia relapses in patients with initially successful cardioversion was similar in the two groups (29% vs 26%, P = ns); thus the initial better outcome in patients with recent-onset arrhythmia was not lost. "
08/01/2010 - "Repeated direct-current cardioversions were unsuccessful and no single anti-arrhythmic agent was effective for arrhythmia control. "
12/01/2009 - "Several antiarrhythmia treatments have been demonstrated to be effective in cardioversion of arrhythmia and maintenance of the sinus rhythm. "
04/01/1994 - "Use of pacing includes several advantages, but it is not always effective; when pacing is not effective, shocks can be used for cardioversion of the arrhythmia. "
05/01/1984 - "The arrhythmia was resistant to multiple drugs, and repeated cardioversion was effective in only 3 patients. "
09/01/2001 - "Quadruple pads external cardioversion is highly effective in converting chronic AF refractory to standard shock protocols to sinus rhythm. "
01/01/2000 - "Electrical transthoracic cardioversion by using different electrode positions and additional pressure over the electrodes during shock delivery is a highly effective and well-tolerated method in restoration of sinus rhythm even in patients under conscious sedation. "
11/01/2004 - "The results indicate that higher energy DC shock application using a double external defibrillator is an effective and safe method for the cardioversion of refractory AF. "
01/01/1976 - "The efficacy of DC shock and the maintenance of sinus rhythm after cardioversion was greater in patients with AF having a slower rate and a longer MAP."
12/01/2005 - "A strategy of approximately 24-hour delay in cardioversion shock timing decreased the incidence of ERAF, relative to a shock delivered within a few hours of AF onset. "
01/20/1993 - "11 out of 17 patients (65%) experienced one or more episodes of tachyarrhythmias which was treated successfully with overdrive pacing (ramp or burst), cardioversion or defibrillation. "
02/01/1978 - "In a large number of cases, electrotherapeutical approaches such as DC-cardioversion and cardiac pacing are effective in controlling ectopic tachycardias. "
01/01/2011 - "Efficacy of low energy rectilinear biphasic cardioversion for regular atrial tachyarrhythmias."
11/01/1993 - "A tachycardia-related efficacy of 69% and patient-related efficacy of 46% of the low-energy cardioversion < or = 4 joules was observed. "
11/01/2014 - "From 1998 to 2012, patients admitted to the emergency department for persistent, non-self-terminating atrial tachyarrhythmia lasting >2 days who gave informed consent for TEE-guided cardioversion were prospectively enrolled in the study. "
