EKG changes are common and vary from simple ST changes in the EKG components to complex cardiac arrhythmias. In addition, critically ill patients often have underlying cardiac disease and the most common problem is flaring up of atrial fibrillation. The pharmacologic choices to initially treat the increased heart rate and options for long-term control are discussed.
