Outpatient initiation of dofetilide: insights from the complexities of atrial fibrillation management during the COVID-19 lockdown

Daniel A. N. Mascarenhas, Praveen C. Mudumbi, Bharat K. Kantharia
2021 Journal of interventional cardiac electrophysiology  
We aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of outpatient initiation of dofetilide in patients with AF using cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) for rhythm and QTc interval monitoring.  ...  After making a shared management decision, dofetilide was initiated in a physician office, and rhythm and QTc intervals were monitored by ECGs and CIEDs.  ...  Our study findings hence need to be taken in the context of the extenuating circumstances rather than in a more universal way.  ...
