If very rapid control is required, intravenous β-blockade with metoprolol (5 mg intravenously every 5 minutes up to three doses) or esmolol (500 μg/kg bolus and 50 μg/kg per 44 Cardiology in Family Practice minute infusion titrated up in 50 μg/kg per minute increments every 3 to 5 minutes up to 200 μg/kg per minute), followed by oral therapy can be used.

Echocardiography can demonstrate depressed RV contractility (Kinch & Ryan, 1994). , 1993). , 1985), although such therapy may need to be prolonged. In patients with RV infarction, RV preload should be maintained with fluid administration. , 1985). , 1985). Maintenance of atrioventricular synchrony is also important in these patients to optimize RV filling (Kinch & Ryan, 1994). For patients with continued hemodynamic instability, IABP may be useful, particularly because elevated RV pressures and volumes increase wall stress and oxygen consumption and decrease right coronary perfusion pressure, exacerbating RV ischemia.

If the patient is stable, there is often time to establish the rhythm diagnosis and decide upon the most appropriate treatment. Bradyarrhythmias produce less of a diagnostic challenge and treatment options are relatively straightforward. The goals of antiarrhythmic therapy depend on the type of rhythm disturbance. The initial goal for the treatment of an arrhythmia is to stabilize the hemodynamics and ventricular response. The next goal is to restore sinus rhythm if possible. If restoration of sinus rhythm cannot be achieved, prevention of complications is important.
