Abstract: Intravenous (IV) non-dihydropyridine calcium-channel blockers (verapamil and diltiazem) and most IV beta-blockers rapidly reduce the ventricular response in new-onset atrial fibrillation. Although the absolute decrease in heart rate is greater with diltiazem than with metoprolol in the first 20 minutes, the clinical importance of this difference is unclear.
