Atrial fibrillation with fast ventricular rate. Go for cardioversion with amiodarone bolus 300mg f/b iv infusion for 24 hrs if it's tolerated well. But before doing so get 2d echo done and previous ecg because if LA is enlarged and previous ecg is s/o A.fib then go for rate control rather than rhythm control as a.fib still persist or recurs if la is enlarged. Give oral anticoagulant as per. CHADS2VASc score following 2 days of heparin.
