Active ingredients: adenosine
What it is used for
Therapeutic Indications: ADENOSINE VIATRIS is indicated for the rapid conversion to a normal sinus rhythm of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardias, including those associated with accessory bypass tracts (Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome). Diagnostic Indications: ADENOSINE VIATRIS is indicated as an aid to diagnosis of broad or narrow QRS complex supraventricular tachycardias. Although ADENOSINE VIATRIS is not effective in converting atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia to sinus rhythm, the slowing of AV conduction helps diagnosis of atrial activity. In this respect adenosine should be used as an adjunct to, but not a replacement for, clinical and ECG observations. It should be used only when, despite all diagnostic attempts, doubt still persists. ADENOSINE VIATRIS can also be used for improved diagnostic sensitivity of intracavity electrophysiological investigations.
