Draft NICE guidance welcomed by BHF

1st April 2010

The British Heart Foundation has welcomed new draft guidance from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence on Dronedarone.

NICE recommends limited use of dronedarone for atrial fibrillation (AF). June Davison, Senior Cardiac Nurse at the BHF, said the organisations supported the committee's conclusion that dronedarone should not be recommended as a first-line anti-arrhythmic drug on the basis of current evidence, but that dronedarone should be available for people who find their existing drug ineffective or cannot tolerate the drug they are prescribed.
