Indications of the adenocore
The drug has an antiarrhythmic effect (mainly in the development of supraventricular tachyarrhythmias). Reduces the speed of AV-conduction and automation of the sinus node, increases the refractivity of the AV node, and is also able to interrupt the path of the mechanism of re-entry in the AV node. Has vasodilator and coronary expansive properties. In some cases (often due to slow intravenous infusion) may cause a drop in blood pressure.
