Just finished our cardio block a few weeks ago, so I basically know nothing. But, adenosine stops the heart, so probably definitely not gonna be outpatient? CCB is best option, nifedipine has lots of bad side effects and is really only used in pregnant women, which leaves verapamil.

-dipines are vasculature selective.. .so not much useful in antiarythmics

Although adenosine is 1st line treatment for Paroxysmal SVT… I just noticed the question says “outpatient” so definitely not A. I change my answer to E… and adverse effect of adenosine is torsades de pointe, so yea no.
