Özet

Background: Calcium infusion is used as a pre-treatment before calcium channel blockers to prevent hypotension. Occasional cardioversion with calcium gluconate infusion is seen in patients with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. Several mechanisms have been suggested for mechanism. Herein we report a case presenting with atrial fibrillation but cardioverted with calcium gluconate infusion, which is unreported in the literature before.
