The use of dexmedetomidine continuous rate infusion for horses undergoing transvenous electrical cardioversion — A case series


Marly, Charlotte; Schwarzwald, Colin C; Bettschart-Wolfensberger, Regula (2016). The use of dexmedetomidine continuous rate infusion for horses undergoing transvenous electrical cardioversion — A case series. Canadian Journal of Veterinary Research = Revue Canadienne de Recherche Vétérinaire, 57(1):70-75.

Abstract

Five horses were presented for treatment of atrial fibrillation by transvenous electrical cardioversion (TVEC). A dexmedetomidine infusion was administered for sedation during positioning of the cardioversion catheters, and continued during general anesthesia. Shocks were applied until return to sinus rhythm. Dexmedetomidine infusion provided excellent conditions for TVEC catheter placement and procedure.
