Effectiveness and costs of digoxin treatment for atrial fibrillation and flutter.
Clinical outcomes and costs associated with the use of digoxin in atrial fibrillation and flutter were evaluated in a prospective, observational study at 18 academic in a prospective, observational study at 18 academic medical centers in the United States.
Data were collected on 115 patients (aged >18 years) with atrial fibrillation or flutter who were treated with digoxin for rapid ventricular rate (>120 beats/min).
The median time to ventricual rate control (i.e., resting ventricular rate <100 beats/min, decrease in ventricular rate of >20%, or sinus rhythm) was 11.6 hours from the first dose of digoxin for all evaluable patients (n=105) and 9.5 hours for those only receiving digoxin (n=64).
