    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Cardioversion remains an important therapy in the management of atrial fibrillation. Here, we report a case where direct current cardioversion resulted in a sudden dramatic change of heart rate that was associated with multiple ventricular fibrillation arrests in a manner akin to that previously observed post-atrioventricular node ablation.
