Educational Pearls:

  • Rate control with beta blockers or calcium channel blockers; with a slightly increased efficacy using calcium channel blockers.
  • It is not contraindicated to give both if the first medication tried does not work.
  • Magnesium has been shown to supplement the beta blockers and calcium channel blockers in patients with AFib.
