Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
The primary mechanism of action of ibutilide is to block potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily H member 2 (KCNH2, aka hERG), a potassium channel α subunit responsible for controlling the cardiac action potential. The drug may also have effects on other ion channels. See the DrugBank link for further details.
