Customer Question
Hi doc, I have...

Hi doc, I have suit filed against a cardiologist for not administering Sotalol in a hospital -monitored setting. My client went into cardiac arrest as a result. I'm looking for a cardiologist to review and testify.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

She was receiving Sotalol for A-fib.

Hello, thank you for your question, It is true that sotalol should be started in the hospital and till heart rate and blood pressure are adjusted with a particular dose of sotalol this medicine is not given as a home treatment without first observing the effects for 48-72 hours. Unfortunately On this website we cannot testify as this website is only for educational purpose, for patients who want to understand their disease or want to get a second opinion, let me know if i can provide help in this regard. Thank you.
