Adenosine in wide-complex tachycardia.

Author information

Department of Emergency Medicine, UCLA School of Medicine, USA.


The use of adenosine as a therapeutic and diagnostic tool in wide-complex tachycardia is suggested in the current Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) guidelines. The ACLS guidelines are now 4 years old, and new information on the safety and efficiency of adenosine in wide-complex tachycardia is available. We review the ACLS recommendations in light of the current available literature. In general, the ACLS recommendations remain reasonable with some important caveats.
