Hello brooks;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Pacerone is amidarone ;a drug which is used to treat atrial fibrillation;ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachyarrythmias.Since the conditions require monitoring of heart with help of cardiac monitor it is better for the patient to be hospitalised.The dose is given in form of oral or intravenous formulation and once the patients condition is stabilised he can be discharged from hospital.The medicine is strictly used under guidance of a Cardiologist.
Take care.
