Conclusion: The patients receiving the pharmacist amiodarone dosing protocol for CV surgery had a numerically lower incidence of post-operative atrial fibrillation though number of patients included was low preventing statistical significance from being reached. Using a pharmacist protocol for dosing amiodarone in CV surgery may be effective to increase amiodarone use and decrease post-operative atrial fibrillation.
