4.1 Therapeutic indications

Adenosine 3mg/ml Solution for Injection is indicated in adults and children aged 0 to 18 years.

Adults

Rapid conversion to a normal sinus rhythm of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardias, including those associated with accessory by-pass tracts (Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome).

Diagnostic Indications

Aid to diagnosis of broad or narrow complex supraventricular tachycardias. Although Adenosine 3mg/ml Solution for Injection will not convert atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia to sinus rhythm, the slowing of AV conduction helps diagnosis of atrial activity. Sensitisation of intra-cavitary electrophysiological investigations.

Paediatric population

Rapid conversion to a normal sinus rhythm of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia in children aged 0 to 18 years.
