Table 1: ECG Characteristics
- The rapid ventricular rate present in atrial flutter causes a decreased cardiac output, which results in symptoms such as palpitations, fatigue, mild, dyspnea, and presyncope.
- Treatment of symptomatic atrial flutter is similar to treatment of atrial fibrillation. Intravenous calcium-channel blockers or beta-adrenergic blockers can be used to help control the ventricular rate.
