Objectives
With increasing awareness of the disappointing efficacy and safety profile of class I antiarrhythmic agents, [beta]-adrenocegitor receptor blockers (class II) and potassium channel blockers (class III) have received increasing focus and attention. This study aims at evaluation of the electrophysiological effects and antiarrhythmic efficacy of sotalol, a drug with both [beta]-blocking and class III actions, in patients with sustained supraventricular and ventricular tachyarrhythma
