ABSTRACT
The article offers information on direct current cardioversion (DDCV), a treatment for persistent atrial fibrillation which has become a standard medical procedure performed in almost all hospitals with an acute medical unit in Great Britain. It discusses how to perform DCCV in patients with permanent pacemakers in situ. The article shows that DCCV is simple, safe, effective and in a majority of cases does not require general anesthesia or the presence of an anesthetist.
