What are Antiarrhythmic Drugs?
Antiarrhythmic medicines are pharmaceutical drugs; that are often been referred to as cardiac dysrhythmia medications. In other words, these medicines are a group of pharmaceuticals that are used to suppress abnormal rhythms of the heart or cardiac arrhythmias.

- Atrial flutter
- Ventricular tachycardia

Types of Antiarrhythmic Drugs
Classifying the different types of antiarrhythmic agents is a difficult job. The difficulty lies with the fact that many of the antiarrhythmic agents have multiple modes of action, making any classification imprecise. However, there is a broadly accepted classification that is known as the Vaughan Williams classification of antiarrhythmic agents. They can be arranged as follows:
- Class I agents act with the sodium (Na+) channel.
- Class II agents are mostly Beta-blockers.
- Class III agents act with potassium (K+) efflux.
- Class IV agents interfere with calcium channels and the AV node.
- Class V agents work by other or unknown mechanisms.
In respect to the management of atrial fibrillation, classes I and III are used in rhythm control as medical cardioversion agents, while classes II and IV are used as rate-control agents.
Administration of Antiarrhythmic Drugs
Most of the antiarrhythmic medications may be administered intravenously and orally, as per the severity of the patient's condition.
Among the Class-I antiarrhythmic agents, Procainamide and Lidocaine are administered intravenously since their primary use is acute treatment; while Adenosine should be administered via proximal IV as a rapid bolus infusion, followed by a saline flush.
