Abstract

Superfusion with 5 μg/ml amiodarone for 3-4h induced use-dependent V̇max block in dog Purkinje and guinea pig ventricular muscle fibers. The recovery from block was exponential with τ of 289 ± 30 ms in Purkinje (n = 7)and 282 ± 47 ms in muscle (n = 6) fibers. The onset of frequency-dependent V̇max block was rapid, i.e. reached steady state after 4.2 ± 0.5 beats (n = 5). The combination of rapid interaction with sodium channel and the reported action potential lengthening make amiodarone unique among Class I antiarrhythmic drugs.
