electro cardioversion

Posted By bill on April 14, 1999 at 21:41:34
I am a 35 year old male recently diognosed as being in a-fib, by an ekg, although I felt as normal as ever.  An echo was done and on my first visit to the cardiologist he prescribed cumadin (coumadin) (4mg) and wants to schedule me for a cardioversion.  I have the following questions , Are these procedures as simple as they sound?, is there a mortality rate associated?Will I be able to drive myself home? And, if this condition is hereditary and has been with me for over five years, is it usually successful, or don't those things play into this?  thanks for your help
