Abstract

The development of atrial fibrillation in 2 patients, following an electrical shock is reported. One patient, with an underlying pre-excitation syndrome, had to be cardioverted due to rapid ventricular rate and hypotension. The other, with normal conduction, tolerated the arrhythmia well and atrial fibrillation reverted spontaneously after 24 hours.
