Procainamide is an agent indicated for production of local or regional anesthesia and in the treatment of ventricular tachycardia occurring during cardiac manipulation, such as surgery or catheterization, or which may occur during acute myocardial infarction, digitalis toxicity, or other cardiac diseases. It blocks open sodium channels and prolongs the cardiac action potential and it results in slowed conduction, ultimately the decreased rate of rise of the action potential, which may result in widening of QRS on electrocardiogram.
