Abstract

The present double-blind, placebo-controlled study investigated the effects of intravenous magnesium on heart rate and rate variability in 30 patients with chronic atrial fibrillation. During standardized conditions, intraindividual variation in heart rate and rate variability was low in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation and magnesium had no effect on heart rate or rate variability.
