The answer is 4
Rationale:
1. Cardioversion is done to convert atrial fibrillation. If the client is still in atrial fibrillation, the procedure has not been successful.
2. Cardioversion is done to convert atrial flutter. If the client is still in atrial flutter, the procedure has not been successful.
3. A complication of cardioversion is possible conversion to ventricular tachycardia. This would indicate the procedure has not been successful.
4. The purpose of cardioversion is to convert atrial fibrillation, SVT, stable ventricular tachycardia, or atrial flutter to normal sinus rhythm.
