Notes

The anticholinergic agents are usually given by IV bolus, repeated as necessary.

They are frequently used as a bridge to temporary pacing but should not be considered a substitute. External or internal pacing should be readily accessible.

Atropine nebulisers have been used successfully in patients developing symptomatic bradycardia during endotracheal suction.

Neurological effects may be seen with atropine but not glycopyrrolate.
