    Atrial arrhythmias are believed to be influenced by autonomic nervous system tone. We evaluated the effects of sympathetic and parasympathetic activation on atrial flutter (AFl) by determining the effects of norepinephrine (NE) and acetylcholine (ACh) on the composition of the excitable gap. A...
