Labaz, a prescription medication that alters the hearts rhythm, is defined as an antiarrhythmic medication. It is commonly administered to patients suffering from heart rhythm disorders which can be life threatening when not addressed. Brand names commonly attributed to Labaz include Pacerone, Cordarone, and Cordarone I.V.

Labaz is used to treat ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia, rhythm disorders of the ventricle found in the lower portion of the heart in charge of moving blood out of the organ. This medication was discovered in 1961 but was only cleared for use in the United States by the FDA in 1985.

Labaz is only used in life-threatening situations due to fatal side effects and severe allergic reactions. Patients allergic to iodine or Labaz should not take this medication. People suffering from heart conditions should consult a doctor before taking this medication. It is mainly used for patients suffering from serious irregular heartbeats of the heart; which includes atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, and ventricular fibrillation.
