Cardiac arrhythmias place a heavy burden on health care systems worldwide. Atrial tachycardia (AT) and atrial fibrillation (AF) result in significant cost to health care systems.1 Patients with AT and AF are at an increased risk for stroke, dementia, heart failure and death,2 and ventricular tachycardia (VT) and ventricular fibrillation (VF) are fatal without treatment. An estimated 4 million patients die from sudden cardiac death worldwide, and half of those deaths are attributed to VT alone.2
