MIRYAM, Céspedes Morón; ROSINA, Ruiz Roque  and  FREDY, Chipa Ccasani. Atrial fibrillation that required cardioversion in the post anesthetic recovery unit in ambulatory surgery. A case report. Rev. Fac. Med. Hum. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.4, pp.882-888. ISSN 1814-5469.

In recent years, the profile of patients who can undergo ambulatory surgery procedures in independent ambulatory surgical centers has changed. It is very important to consider the availability, skills and experience of the care staff, as well as the integral study of the patient, the resolution capacity of these centers and evaluations with quality care indicators to obtain optimal results. The present case was of a 34-year-old male, first presentation of rapid and symptomatic atrial fibrillation documented in the immediate postoperative period. Patient care, diagnostic strategy and treatment were described, since the patient required electrical cardioversion.

Keywords : Atrial fibrillation; electrical cardioversion; otorhinolaryngology surgery; outpatient surgery (Source: MeSH NLM)..
