Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Amiodarone-induced pulmonary toxicity (AIPT) is one of the most serious adverse effects of amiodarone therapy and can be fatal. Therefore, vigilant monitoring is advised. Baseline chest radiograph and pulmonary function tests and follow-up chest films at 3-month intervals are advocated. However, since abnormalities on these two examinations do not always precede symptoms, patient self-reports of respiratory symptoms appear to be the best method for early detection of AIPT.
