The drug prevents the recurrence of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias and produces a modest reduction of sudden deaths in high-risk patients. When long-term amiodarone therapy is used, potential drug toxicity and interactions must be considered. LYLE A. 2003 Dec 1;68(11):2189-2197.

Amiodarone is an antiarrhythmic medication used to treat and prevent a number of types of irregular heartbeats. Evidence in cardiac arrest, however, is poor. It can be given by mouth, intravenously, or intraosseously. When used by mouth, it can take a few weeks for effects to begin.

The arrhythmias were effectively controlled, by amiodarone alone in. .Four children with biochemical hepatic dysfunction had high plasma concentrations of amiodarone and a further four children who experienced sleep disturbance had required high doses of amiodarone.

The arrhythmias were effectively controlled, by amiodarone alone in 19 and by amiodarone in combination with other drugs in nine children; amiodarone was ineffective in the remaining two children. Unwanted effects were common but were not significantly related to the dose, duration of treatment, or plasma concentration of amiodarone when group results were analysed.

Amiodarone is a drug commonly used in primary care practice to treat serious cardiac arrhythmias.

While generally effective, the potential for a variety of side effects is substantial. Pulmonary toxicity, leading to acute or chronic respiratory failure, manifests with cough, dyspnea, infiltrates on chest radiograph, and a potential for progression to death. Amiodarone is a drug commonly used in primary care practice to treat serious cardiac arrhythmias. While efficacious, this drug places patients at risk for serious adverse events, and ongoing surveillance is essential.

No ventricular arrhythmias were seen during amiodarone treatment.

Division of Cardiovascular Disease, Royal Postgraduate Medical School, Hammersmith Hospital, London. These arrhythmias seemed to be associated with bepridil induced prolongation of the QTc interval. No ventricular arrhythmias were seen during amiodarone treatment.
