Pulmonary edema post-cardioversion: a potential calcium signalling problem.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The present report describes an unusual case of pulmonary edema after adenosine cardioversion of a supraventricular tachycardia. Despite a structurally normal heart, a 52-year-old woman presented with pulmonary edema on two separate occasions, having had her atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia terminated with 12 mg of intravenous adenosine. A third similar episode of tachycardia that was terminated with verapamil was not complicated by pulmonary edema.
