For instance, experts still disagree about whether moricizine rightly belongs to Class IB or Class IC. ) Worse, amiodarone has properties from all four VaughanWilliams classes. Ultimately, the classification of some drugs appears to be a matter of consensus rather than a matter of science. Although the Vaughan-Williams scheme thus appears incapable of offering definitive classification for all possible mixtures of sodiumand potassium-channel blockade, it nonetheless suggests a framework for characterizing even difficult-to-classify drugs.

Dosage Intravenous loading of procainamide should be given no more rapidly than 50 mg/min to minimize hemodynamic side effects, to a total dose of 15 mg/kg. Administration should be slowed if hypotension occurs and should be stopped if the QRS interval increases by more than 50% or if heart block occurs. A maintenance infusion of 1–6 mg/min can be used to maintain therapeutic levels. By oral administration, 3–6 g/day are usually given in divided doses. With currently available long-acting preparations, procainamide can be given every 6–12 hours.

Effect on cardiac arrhythmias Tachyarrhythmias are mediated by changes in the cardiac action potential, whether the mechanism is automaticity, reentry, or a channelopathy. It is not difficult to imagine, then, how drugs that change the shape of the action potential might be useful in treating cardiac tachyarrhythmias. In practice, the drugs commonly referred to as antiarrhythmic are relatively ineffective in treating automatic arrhythmias or channelopathies. Instead, the potential benefit of these drugs is almost exclusive to the treatment of reentrant arrhythmias, which account for most cardiac arrhythmias.
