Supraventricular tachyarrhythmias, especially atrial fibrillation, are common in cardiac and non-cardiac patients with or without surgery. Prolonged rhythm disturbances may impair cardiac function and worsen the clinical outcome and prognosis. Therefore, heart rate control may be necessary to prevent cardiovascular events.Esmolol and landiolol as ultrashort and rapid acting highly selective β -adrenergic blockers are of particular interest in the prevention and management of cardiac arrhythmias. This review gives an update on both betablockers and their role in the management of arrhythmias in emergency medicine and perioperative setting.

Tachycardia worsens cardiac performance in acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). We investigated whether heart rate (HR) optimization by landiolol, an ultra-short-acting β1-selective blocker, in ...
Effective antibiotic dosing is vital for therapeutic success in critically ill patients. The purpose of this work was to develop an algorithm to identify appropriate meropenem dosing in critically ill...
Critically ill patients are often transferred from the intensive care unit (ICU) to other locations around the hospital during which adverse events, some life threatening, are common. An intercollegia...
Enteral nutrition (EN) is important in the management of critically illness. Yet, the best route (e.g. pre-pyloric or post-pyloric) for EN in critically ill patients remains to be investigated, especi...
Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) in critically ill patients is associated with a markedly increased morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to establish the predictive value of clinical examinatio...
Postoperative atrial fibrillation is a common complication after cardiac surgery and is associated with an elevation of morbidity and mortality. The recommended treatment includes heart ra...
The study aims to investigate whether oral betablocker (BB) therapy is superior to no such treatment following an acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical effect of esmolol treatment on cardiac function and electrophysiology; to assess the effects of esmolol treatment on serum adrenergic ...
After initial hemodynamic stabilization, 36 septic shock patients with heart rate > of 90 bpm and requiring norepinephrine to maintain mean arterial pressure (MAP) more than 65 mmHg will b...
Main objective is to evaluate the sparing effect of esmolol on the required doses of propofol and remifentanil
A short-acting opioid anesthetic and analgesic derivative of FENTANYL. It produces an early peak analgesic effect and fast recovery of consciousness. Alfentanil is effective as an anesthetic during surgery, for supplementation of analgesia during surgical procedures, and as an analgesic for critically ill patients.
Registered nurses with graduate degrees in nursing who provide care to pediatric patients who are acutely or critically ill.
A nursing specialty that deals specifically with the care of patients who are critically ill.
An acronym for Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation, a scoring system using routinely collected data and providing an accurate, objective description for a broad range of intensive care unit admissions, measuring severity of illness in critically ill patients.
One of the short-acting SULFONAMIDES used in combination with PYRIMETHAMINE to treat toxoplasmosis in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and in newborns with congenital infections.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
