Class 1A Antiarrhythmic Use Effect: Increases AP, ERP, QT interval. USE: Atrial & Ventricular arrhythmias, esp reentrant & ectopic SVT & ventricular tachycardia.
Class 1B Antiarrhythmic Use Affect ischemic/depolarized Purkinje & ventricular tissue. Use: Acute ventricular arrhythmia (esp post-MI), Dig-induced arrhythmias.
Class IC Antiarrhythmic Use Ventricular tachs ->VFib, intractable SVT. A last resort reatment.
Class 2 Antiarrhythmic Use Beta Blockers lower cAMP -> lower Ca current. Suppress abnormal pacemakers by slowing phase 4. Increase PR interval. USE: VTach, SVT, slow ventricular rate in AFib/Flutter.
Class 3 Antiarrhythmic Use Increase AP, ERP, QT. Last resort tx.
Class 4 Antiarrhythmic Use Slow AV node conductance, increase ERP, PR. Use: Prevent nodal arrhythmias (SVT).
