Adenosine for Injection 60 mg/ 20 ml Single Dose Vial 20 mL (Rx)
Adenosine injection is a neurochemical that is used by physicians to acutely stop supraventricular tachycardia, or certain abnormal heart rhythms. The neurochemical helps by slowing the heart rate. It is a crystalline, colorless substance found in all body tissues, including the brain and muscles. When the heart muscle contracts, adenosine is released. Adenosine also is released when the brain uses its energy.
Primary use for adenosine is treating supraventricular tachycardia, a condition in which the heart beats too quickly because of a problem in the electrical system of the heart.
When this fast heartbeat begins, adenosine can be given as an injection to help the heart get back to a normal rhythm.
