In the article by Timmermans et al that appeared in a previous issue of the journal (Circulation. 1999;100:1499–1501), the information regarding the number of shocks needed for treatment was incorrect. This information was printed in the Abstract, Results, and Discussion sections of the article. The correct information appears below.
The average number of shocks needed for AF episodes requiring sedation was 2.9±2.7, and the average number of shocks needed for AF episodes not requiring sedation was 1.7±1.3 (P<0.001).
