Intravenous sotalol use in a complex critically ill child: balancing the systems in choosing antiarrhythmic medication

  • Michele M. Pasierb (a1) and Stephen P. Seslar (a1)

Abstract

In critically ill children, multi-organ-system disease can influence the choice of antiarrhythmic medication. Intravenous therapy is often necessary. There is a scarcity of paediatric critical-care cases demonstrating the dosing, monitoring, and efficacy of intravenous sotalol. This case demonstrates the effective use of intravenous sotalol in an adolescent with renal, hepatic, and haematological dysfunctions.
