In brief: Digoxin

Digoxin can cause some disturbances with electrical cardio version, we often stop the drug for a few days before depending on the situation.

In brief: To prevent problems

A patient on digoxin, especially of the level in the blood is a high, is more prone to get rhythm problems at the time of the shock.
Holding the digoxin for a day or so tends to reduce the incidence of such problems.
