At high infusion rates, it has positive inotropic and chronotropic effects and tends to increase cardiac output and systemic vascular resistance (SVR).
2 mg/kg IV/IO to a maximum of 12 mg. This dose may be repeated once for a total of three doses.

Avoid administering amiodarone with 22 Chapter 1: Resuscitation any other drug that causes QT prolongation (procainamide), which may then precipitate polymorphic VT. The loading dose for SVT or VT (with pulses) is 5 mg/kg IV (300 mg maximum) over 20–60 minutes.
