In brief: Out patient

Elective cardioversion is an out pt procedure.
The anesthesia is the rate limiting step. If pts recover as expected then pts are discharged a couple of hrs after the cardioversion.

In brief: 2 hours

We often monitor the patient for a brief period to make sure they are stable and then discharge them home quickly.
Assuming that the cardioversion was elective of course.
