The Lead Episode 20: A Discussion of (RAPID): A Multicentre, Randomised Trial
Etripamil is a fast-acting, intranasally administered calcium-channel blocker in development for ondemand therapy outside a health-care setting for paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. The authors of this randomized trial evaluated the efficacy and safety of etripamil 70 mg nasal spray using a symptom-prompted, repeat-dose regimen for acute conversion of atrioventricular-nodal-dependent paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia to sinus rhythm within 30 min.
