formic acid (neurotoxic – retina and optic nerves) Under extreme conditions such as shock states and impaired ventilation, carbon dioxide may accumulate, leading to worsening acidosis [8, 9]. Epub 2017 Jan 19. TCA toxicity may be delayed and patients may initially appear clinically well until decompensation occurs. The potential benefits of exogenous intravenous sodium bicarbonate include the correction of metabolic acidosis with its associated detrimental effects. Fourth, the data on the role of sodium bicarbonate in the management of salicylate poisoning will be provided. An overview of the endogenous bicarbonate metabolism. B. NLM Ad Hoc committee,”, D. G. Barceloux, G. R. Bond, E. P. Krenzelok, H. Cooper, and J. As in the management of other discussed toxidromes, the literature on the benefits of IV sodium bicarbonate originates from case reports and consensus guidelines [58, 59]. Aspirin requires an acidic environment for proper absorption, and the basic environment diminishes aspirin absorption in the case of an overdose. Antidotes are available for a range of poisons and can reverse or reduce toxicity, such as naloxone for opioid poisoning, alcohol or fomepizole for toxic alcohols, oxygen for carbon monoxide, chelators for certain metals, sodium bicarbonate for sodium channel blocking agents, methylene blue for methemoglobinemia, and others. Due to greater permeability of the blood-brain barrier to hydrogen than to bicarbonate, the pH of cerebrospinal fluid may significantly decrease during sodium bicarbonate administration, which can cause mental stupor or coma. Early after an ingestion of too much baking soda, vomiting and diarrhea are common as the body tries to correct the high sodium concentration by pulling more water into the digestive tract. Clinical presentations of methanol and ethylene glycol overlap, including central nervous system (CNS) symptoms such as headache, altered mental status, and seizures. A new approach to the classification of antiarrhythmic drugs based on their actions on arrhythmogenic mechanisms,”, C. E. Stafstrom, “Mechanisms of action of antiepileptic drugs: the search for synergy,”, J. M. Dupuy, M. J. Ostacher, J. Huffman, R. H. Perlis, and A. Retinal toxicity and blindness are more specific for methanol; acute kidney injury and hypocalcemia are more typical for ethylene glycol intoxication. Decreased cardiac oxygen supply and arterial vasoconstriction may also occur secondary to metabolic alkalosis [16, 17]. IV administration of sodium bicarbonate may result in enhanced urinary excretion of certain chemicals through urinary alkalinization [56]. These end products result in classic features of toxicity such as retinal toxicity caused by methanol and renal injury mediated by oxalic acid. Omeprazole and Sodium Bicarbonate capsules can cause serious side effects, including: A type of kidney problem (acute tubulointerstitial nephritis). The suggested regimen for IV sodium bicarbonate is similar to the above-discussed indications. However, in some cases, these medications may result in harm including a severe illness and death due to intentional or unintentional overdose or as a result of idiosyncratic drug reaction. It may be necessary to continue sodium bicarbonate after bolus doses in the form of IV infusion by diluting 2-3 ampules in 1 liter of dextrose 5% solution that is nearly isotonic to plasma to decrease the risk of potential rebound deterioration, while, on IV sodium bicarbonate, patients should be monitored for evidence of fluid overload, respiratory status with advanced airway management when indicated, electrolyte abnormalities (hypernatremia, hypokalemia, hypocalcemia), and metabolic alkalosis (potential target pH of 7.5). Fundoscopic examination and arterial blood gas analysis are the key diagnostic elements. Dialysis can also be used to remove both the methanol and formic acid. The final products of methanol and ethylene glycol metabolism are formic acid and oxalic acid, respectively [57]. Other medications such as antiarrhythmics [36–38], non-TCA antidepressants [39, 40], antiepileptic medications [41–43], cyclobenzaprine [43, 44], propranolol [45], cocaine [46], and certain antihistamines [47] may produce similar ECG and clinical manifestations with favorable response to similarly administered IV sodium bicarbonate. Sodium bicarbonate also has a role in the treatment of phenobarbital, chlorpropamide, and chlorophenoxy herbicide poisonings and wide-complex tachydysrhythmias induced by type IA and IC antidysrhythmics and cocaine. In conclusion, the literature on the use of sodium bicarbonate in the management of sodium channel blocker toxicities is limited to animal research and case series; randomized trials are precluded due to ethical reasons. Metabolic acidosis drives the above reaction to the right and increases the plasma concentration of HS, thereby promoting diffusion across the blood-brain barrier into the CNS. Van Geijlswijk, D. Tjan, and A. In addition to use in treatment of poisonings with sodium channel blocking activity, sodium bicarbonate may also be used as adjunctive therapy in poisonings due to methanol, ethylene glycol, and salicylates. However sodium bicarbonate as adjunctive treatment is still controversy. A list of some of the commonly used medications possessing sodium channel blocking activities is presented in Table 2. The majority of toxicities arise either as a result of a suicidal attempt or after drinking the toxic alcohol as a substitute for ethanol [57]. The first report in the English language medical literature of the positive effect of sodium bicarbonate in the management of salicylate-poisoned patient originates in 1948 [55]. In rare circumstances (such as acute illness and worsening renal function), metformin administration may result in the development of lactic acidosis that is believed to be secondary to mitochondrial dysfunction, with a shift towards anaerobic glycolysis [60–62]. Nevertheless, these adverse effects of sodium bicarbonate such as an increase in systemic pH and high sodium load may be useful in the management of certain pharmacological toxicities and overdoses. This site needs JavaScript to work properly. Third, we will review the literature on the role of sodium bicarbonate in the management of sodium channel blocker toxicities. Moderate metabolic acidosis: 50 to 150 mEq sodium bicarbonate diluted in 1 L of D5W to be intravenously infused at a rate of 1 to 1.5 L/hour during the first hour. B. Posner and F.

HHS As is the case with any treatment involving IV sodium bicarbonate, administration necessitates frequent monitoring of metabolic parameters (serum electrolytes and renal function), cardiopulmonary, and renal status of the patient. Sodium bicarbonate is widely used in many clinical situations including cardiac arrest [3, 4] and prevention of contrast-induced renal failure [5] and in patients with different types of metabolic acidosis (such as lactic acidosis and diabetic ketoacidosis) [6], despite limited and controversial evidence of its benefits. While receiving sodium bicarbonate, patients must be monitored for the development of associated side effects including electrolyte abnormalities, the progression of metabolic alkalosis, volume overload, worsening respiratory status, and/or worsening metabolic acidosis.

Clin Toxicol (Phila). It is chemically known as sodium bicarbonate and has a variety of other applications; Baking soda is used for baking breads and cakes. List of some drugs with sodium channel blocking properties. The pathogenesis of TCA toxicity in regard to sodium channel blockade is fundamental to the understanding of other sodium channel toxicities, as is the therapeutic role of intravenous (IV) sodium bicarbonate.

Rashad, A. 2 The minimal poisoning dose of methanol in humans has been assumed to be 100 mg/kg body weight and about 30 mL of pure methanol may cause death. Patients with oliguric/anuric renal failure and advanced decompensated heart failure should not receive sodium bicarbonate. Salicylates are a group of pharmacological agents that include aspirin, bismuth salicylate, and local skin preparations such as salicylic acid and methyl salicylate (topical preparations that rarely cause toxicity if used in an excessive amount or in patients with skin damage leading to increased absorption) [51, 52]. Fomepizole for the treatment of pediatric ethylene and diethylene glycol, butoxyethanol, and methanol poisonings. Sign up here as a reviewer to help fast-track new submissions. 12-lead ECG of sodium channel blocker toxicity before and after administration of sodium bicarbonate is presented in Figures 2(a) and 2(b). toxicity. these results, the suspicion of methanol poisoning was reinforced and the patient was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to receive the treatment, requiring mechanical ventilation, serum therapy, antidote with intravenous ethanol, sodium bicarbonate and folic acid, and hemodialysis to purify methanol molecules. Salicylic acid (HS) is a weak acid that exists in a charged (deprotonated, sal−) and uncharged (protonated, H+) form: H+ + sal−  ⇔ HS. Serum sodium and osmolality tend to increase which may lead to cellular dehydration and systemic hypervolemia [13]. However, most of the available evidence originates from case reports, case series, and expert consensus recommendations. Am J Kidney Dis. Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. Patients treated with sodium bicarbonate should be monitored in the intensive care setting with continuous monitoring and reassessment. Metabolic acidosis that occurs in cases of hemodynamic deterioration potentiates the sodium blocking activity of TCA medications by increasing the binding to sodium channels [29–31]. Serum potassium may decrease as a result of potassium shift into the cells in the patient with metabolic acidosis treated with sodium bicarbonate. Field, H. Nohara, and K.

We will first briefly review the mechanisms of metabolic acidosis related biochemical derangements since some of the overdoses are associated with metabolic acidosis. Conversion of methanol to formaldehyde by hepatic enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase triggers the cascade of metabolic events. A repeat level may sometimes be obtained two hours after hemodialysis to exclude rebound. IV sodium bicarbonate should be considered in the cases of suspected sodium channel blocker toxicity associated with hemodynamic and ECG abnormalities, given the very high risk of adverse outcome without aggressive treatment [50]. We will be providing unlimited waivers of publication charges for accepted research articles as well as case reports and case series related to COVID-19. There were 52430 exposures to alcohols resulting in 174 fatalities in 2013 [55]. Sodium bicarbonate is commonly administered as 8.4% solution 1-2 mEq/kg (see Table 1) in cases of TCA associated ECG abnormalities (such as QRS prolongation > 100 msec), hemodynamic compromise, and malignant ventricular arrhythmias [34–36].

sodium bicarbonate methanol poisoning

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major byproduct of energy metabolism in living organisms and a conjugate acid. Based on clinical experience and available literature, the majority of patients tend to respond via improvement in hemodynamic and ECG parameters. A simplified view on the bicarbonate chemistry is provided in Figure 1. B. Mowry, D. A. Spyker, L. R. Cantilena Jr., N. McMillan, and M. Ford, “2013 annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers' National Poison Data System (NPDS): 31st annual report,”, G. F. O'Malley, “Emergency department management of the salicylate-poisoned patient,”, A. T. Proudfoot, E. P. Krenzelok, and J. When evaluating the toxicity of baking soda, there are two parts to consider: the sodium; and the bicarbonate, which effects the pH (acid level) of body fluids. [Kidney transplants from donors burdened metabolic acidosis in the course of poisoning with methanol and carbon monoxide]. Aibek E. Mirrakhimov, Taha Ayach, Aram Barbaryan, Goutham Talari, Romil Chadha, Adam Gray, "The Role of Sodium Bicarbonate in the Management of Some Toxic Ingestions", International Journal of Nephrology, vol. ... correction of acidosis with sodium bicarbonate, intubation and mechanical ventilation and The basic steps in approach must be carried out in the emergency department and followed-up with meticulous monitoring in the intensive care unit for salvage as well as prevention of long term sequelae. The authors declare that they have no conflicts of interest regarding the publication of this paper. Baking soda is white powdery substance that is primarily used for cooking and cleaning purposes. The concurrence of cases from a particular area raises doubts about methanol as the culprit. [Acute methanol poisoning--a review and a case report]. A. Nierenberg, “A critical review of pharmacotherapy for major depressive disorder,”, W. A. Watson, T. L. Litovitz, G. C. Rodgers Jr. et al., “2004 Annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers Toxic Exposure Surveillance System,”, P. K. Gillman, “Tricyclic antidepressant pharmacology and therapeutic drug interactions updated,”, K. H. Choi and K.-U. The high sodium load increases the electrochemical gradient across cardiac cell membranes, potentially attenuating the TCA-induced blockade of sodium channels [29, 30]. Irritability and tetany have been associated with sodium bicarbonate-induced alkalosis or hypernatremia. The metabolism of methanol is responsible for the transformation of methanol to its toxic metabolites, especially formic acid. Schramm A, Rogner B, Weise M, Franz C, Walter A. Drugs and toxins that act as sodium channel antagonists include agents listed in List 1. Key facts • Methanol is a widely available chemical with a range of uses including as a solvent, in chemical synthesis and as a fuel. Review articles are excluded from this waiver policy. Inhibition of cardiac sodium channels may manifest on the electrocardiogram (ECG) as the prolongation of QRS interval, new onset right axis deviation, deep S wave in lead AVL, tall R wave, and increased R wave to S wave ration in lead AVR and Brugada-like pattern [24–28]. The scientific data on the use of sodium bicarbonate in the management of TCA toxicity is predominantly originated from animal studies, case reports, and case series [32, 33]. Uncharged molecules (HS), unlike charged molecules (sal−), can move easily across cellular barriers, including the blood-brain barrier and the epithelium of the renal tubule. Acidemia leads to protonation of methanol and ethylene glycol metabolites to uncharged molecules (e.g., formic acid and oxalic acid), making them more likely to penetrate end-organ tissues (such as the retina) and more likely to be reabsorbed across the renal epithelium from the urine [58]. Patients with salicylate toxicity typically present with tinnitus, gastrointestinal complications (nausea, vomiting, bleeding, and liver toxicity), hyperthermia (via uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation), pulmonary edema, and mixed acid-base disorder (high anion gap metabolic acidosis and respiratory alkalosis via stimulation of respiratory center in the brain stem) [55]. The patient will often be given intravenous fluids and electrolytes, airway management, and be evaluated and treated for any existing neurological or cardiovascular problems resulting from the methanol poisoning. The decrease in the blood pH will favor formation of lipid soluble salicylic acid which easily penetrates blood-brain barrier and undergoes renal reabsorption [55]. USA.gov. in itself if is not very toxic, however metabolised to formaldehyde -> formic acid (neurotoxic – retina and optic nerves) Under extreme conditions such as shock states and impaired ventilation, carbon dioxide may accumulate, leading to worsening acidosis [8, 9]. Epub 2017 Jan 19. TCA toxicity may be delayed and patients may initially appear clinically well until decompensation occurs. The potential benefits of exogenous intravenous sodium bicarbonate include the correction of metabolic acidosis with its associated detrimental effects. Fourth, the data on the role of sodium bicarbonate in the management of salicylate poisoning will be provided. An overview of the endogenous bicarbonate metabolism. B. NLM Ad Hoc committee,”, D. G. Barceloux, G. R. Bond, E. P. Krenzelok, H. Cooper, and J. As in the management of other discussed toxidromes, the literature on the benefits of IV sodium bicarbonate originates from case reports and consensus guidelines [58, 59]. Aspirin requires an acidic environment for proper absorption, and the basic environment diminishes aspirin absorption in the case of an overdose. Antidotes are available for a range of poisons and can reverse or reduce toxicity, such as naloxone for opioid poisoning, alcohol or fomepizole for toxic alcohols, oxygen for carbon monoxide, chelators for certain metals, sodium bicarbonate for sodium channel blocking agents, methylene blue for methemoglobinemia, and others. Due to greater permeability of the blood-brain barrier to hydrogen than to bicarbonate, the pH of cerebrospinal fluid may significantly decrease during sodium bicarbonate administration, which can cause mental stupor or coma. Early after an ingestion of too much baking soda, vomiting and diarrhea are common as the body tries to correct the high sodium concentration by pulling more water into the digestive tract. Clinical presentations of methanol and ethylene glycol overlap, including central nervous system (CNS) symptoms such as headache, altered mental status, and seizures. A new approach to the classification of antiarrhythmic drugs based on their actions on arrhythmogenic mechanisms,”, C. E. Stafstrom, “Mechanisms of action of antiepileptic drugs: the search for synergy,”, J. M. Dupuy, M. J. Ostacher, J. Huffman, R. H. Perlis, and A. Retinal toxicity and blindness are more specific for methanol; acute kidney injury and hypocalcemia are more typical for ethylene glycol intoxication. Decreased cardiac oxygen supply and arterial vasoconstriction may also occur secondary to metabolic alkalosis [16, 17]. IV administration of sodium bicarbonate may result in enhanced urinary excretion of certain chemicals through urinary alkalinization [56]. These end products result in classic features of toxicity such as retinal toxicity caused by methanol and renal injury mediated by oxalic acid. Omeprazole and Sodium Bicarbonate capsules can cause serious side effects, including: A type of kidney problem (acute tubulointerstitial nephritis). The suggested regimen for IV sodium bicarbonate is similar to the above-discussed indications. However, in some cases, these medications may result in harm including a severe illness and death due to intentional or unintentional overdose or as a result of idiosyncratic drug reaction. It may be necessary to continue sodium bicarbonate after bolus doses in the form of IV infusion by diluting 2-3 ampules in 1 liter of dextrose 5% solution that is nearly isotonic to plasma to decrease the risk of potential rebound deterioration, while, on IV sodium bicarbonate, patients should be monitored for evidence of fluid overload, respiratory status with advanced airway management when indicated, electrolyte abnormalities (hypernatremia, hypokalemia, hypocalcemia), and metabolic alkalosis (potential target pH of 7.5). Fundoscopic examination and arterial blood gas analysis are the key diagnostic elements. Dialysis can also be used to remove both the methanol and formic acid. The final products of methanol and ethylene glycol metabolism are formic acid and oxalic acid, respectively [57]. Other medications such as antiarrhythmics [36–38], non-TCA antidepressants [39, 40], antiepileptic medications [41–43], cyclobenzaprine [43, 44], propranolol [45], cocaine [46], and certain antihistamines [47] may produce similar ECG and clinical manifestations with favorable response to similarly administered IV sodium bicarbonate. Sodium bicarbonate also has a role in the treatment of phenobarbital, chlorpropamide, and chlorophenoxy herbicide poisonings and wide-complex tachydysrhythmias induced by type IA and IC antidysrhythmics and cocaine. In conclusion, the literature on the use of sodium bicarbonate in the management of sodium channel blocker toxicities is limited to animal research and case series; randomized trials are precluded due to ethical reasons. Metabolic acidosis drives the above reaction to the right and increases the plasma concentration of HS, thereby promoting diffusion across the blood-brain barrier into the CNS. Van Geijlswijk, D. Tjan, and A. In addition to use in treatment of poisonings with sodium channel blocking activity, sodium bicarbonate may also be used as adjunctive therapy in poisonings due to methanol, ethylene glycol, and salicylates. However sodium bicarbonate as adjunctive treatment is still controversy. A list of some of the commonly used medications possessing sodium channel blocking activities is presented in Table 2. The majority of toxicities arise either as a result of a suicidal attempt or after drinking the toxic alcohol as a substitute for ethanol [57]. The first report in the English language medical literature of the positive effect of sodium bicarbonate in the management of salicylate-poisoned patient originates in 1948 [55]. In rare circumstances (such as acute illness and worsening renal function), metformin administration may result in the development of lactic acidosis that is believed to be secondary to mitochondrial dysfunction, with a shift towards anaerobic glycolysis [60–62]. Nevertheless, these adverse effects of sodium bicarbonate such as an increase in systemic pH and high sodium load may be useful in the management of certain pharmacological toxicities and overdoses. This site needs JavaScript to work properly. Third, we will review the literature on the role of sodium bicarbonate in the management of sodium channel blocker toxicities. Moderate metabolic acidosis: 50 to 150 mEq sodium bicarbonate diluted in 1 L of D5W to be intravenously infused at a rate of 1 to 1.5 L/hour during the first hour. B. Posner and F.

Not a substitute for dialysis in severe salicylism; Continuous IV infusion of sodium bicarbonate is indicated even in the presence of mild alkalemia from the early respiratory alkalosis per 2013 ACMT guidelines A. Vale, “American Academy of Clinical Toxicology practice guidelines on the treatment of methanol poisoning,”, A. Protti, A. Lecchi, F. Fortunato et al., “Metformin overdose causes platelet mitochondrial dysfunction in humans,”, J.-C. Orban, E. Fontaine, and C. Ichai, “Metformin overdose: time to move on,”, B. HHS As is the case with any treatment involving IV sodium bicarbonate, administration necessitates frequent monitoring of metabolic parameters (serum electrolytes and renal function), cardiopulmonary, and renal status of the patient. Sodium bicarbonate is widely used in many clinical situations including cardiac arrest [3, 4] and prevention of contrast-induced renal failure [5] and in patients with different types of metabolic acidosis (such as lactic acidosis and diabetic ketoacidosis) [6], despite limited and controversial evidence of its benefits. While receiving sodium bicarbonate, patients must be monitored for the development of associated side effects including electrolyte abnormalities, the progression of metabolic alkalosis, volume overload, worsening respiratory status, and/or worsening metabolic acidosis.

Clin Toxicol (Phila). It is chemically known as sodium bicarbonate and has a variety of other applications; Baking soda is used for baking breads and cakes. List of some drugs with sodium channel blocking properties. The pathogenesis of TCA toxicity in regard to sodium channel blockade is fundamental to the understanding of other sodium channel toxicities, as is the therapeutic role of intravenous (IV) sodium bicarbonate. Seizures, hypoglycemia and blindness frequently complicate the picture. Brown, and G. J. Wilkes, “Plasma alkalinization for tricyclic antidepressant toxicity: a systematic review,”, C. Köppel, U. Oberdisse, and G. Heinemeyer, “Clinical course and outcome in class ic antiarrhythmic overdose,”, E. Bou-Abboud and S. Nattel, “Relative role of alkalosis and sodium ions in reversal of class I antiarrhythmic drug-induced sodium channel blockade by sodium bicarbonate,”, P.-Y. It is important to note that mild alkalemia from a respiratory alkalosis (arterial pH < 7.55) is not a contraindication to sodium bicarbonate therapy in salicylate poisoning. can also bind extra H+ producing carbonic acid.

Griffel, “Difference in acid-base state between venous and arterial blood during cardiopulmonary resuscitation,”, H. J. Adrogue, N. Rashad, A. 2 The minimal poisoning dose of methanol in humans has been assumed to be 100 mg/kg body weight and about 30 mL of pure methanol may cause death. Patients with oliguric/anuric renal failure and advanced decompensated heart failure should not receive sodium bicarbonate. Salicylates are a group of pharmacological agents that include aspirin, bismuth salicylate, and local skin preparations such as salicylic acid and methyl salicylate (topical preparations that rarely cause toxicity if used in an excessive amount or in patients with skin damage leading to increased absorption) [51, 52]. Fomepizole for the treatment of pediatric ethylene and diethylene glycol, butoxyethanol, and methanol poisonings. Sign up here as a reviewer to help fast-track new submissions. 12-lead ECG of sodium channel blocker toxicity before and after administration of sodium bicarbonate is presented in Figures 2(a) and 2(b). toxicity. these results, the suspicion of methanol poisoning was reinforced and the patient was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to receive the treatment, requiring mechanical ventilation, serum therapy, antidote with intravenous ethanol, sodium bicarbonate and folic acid, and hemodialysis to purify methanol molecules. Salicylic acid (HS) is a weak acid that exists in a charged (deprotonated, sal−) and uncharged (protonated, H+) form: H+ + sal−  ⇔ HS. Serum sodium and osmolality tend to increase which may lead to cellular dehydration and systemic hypervolemia [13]. However, most of the available evidence originates from case reports, case series, and expert consensus recommendations. Am J Kidney Dis. Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. Patients treated with sodium bicarbonate should be monitored in the intensive care setting with continuous monitoring and reassessment. Metabolic acidosis that occurs in cases of hemodynamic deterioration potentiates the sodium blocking activity of TCA medications by increasing the binding to sodium channels [29–31]. Serum potassium may decrease as a result of potassium shift into the cells in the patient with metabolic acidosis treated with sodium bicarbonate. Field, H. Nohara, and K. Yamashita, “Counterproductive effects of sodium bicarbonate in diabetic ketoacidosis,”, W. A. Neill and M. Hattenhauer, “Impairment of myocardial O2 supply due to hyperventilation,”, J. R. Wilson, S.

We will first briefly review the mechanisms of metabolic acidosis related biochemical derangements since some of the overdoses are associated with metabolic acidosis. Conversion of methanol to formaldehyde by hepatic enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase triggers the cascade of metabolic events. A repeat level may sometimes be obtained two hours after hemodialysis to exclude rebound. IV sodium bicarbonate should be considered in the cases of suspected sodium channel blocker toxicity associated with hemodynamic and ECG abnormalities, given the very high risk of adverse outcome without aggressive treatment [50]. We will be providing unlimited waivers of publication charges for accepted research articles as well as case reports and case series related to COVID-19. There were 52430 exposures to alcohols resulting in 174 fatalities in 2013 [55]. Sodium bicarbonate is commonly administered as 8.4% solution 1-2 mEq/kg (see Table 1) in cases of TCA associated ECG abnormalities (such as QRS prolongation > 100 msec), hemodynamic compromise, and malignant ventricular arrhythmias [34–36].
