Atrial Flutter in the Neonate: A Case Study
Atrial flutter (AF) is an uncommon neonatal tachyarrhythmia that can present during the first few days after birth. The infant with AF may demonstrate an abrupt increase in heart rate greater than 220 bpm that is sustained despite vagal maneuvers. The diagnosis is made by electrocardiogram (ECG), and the treatments may include medication management and cardioversion. We present a case review of an infant diagnosed with AF and describe the incidence, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management.
