?cause: It depends on the type & cause. An ekg will determine the type of tachycardia. If it's occurs with normal conduction, treatment is directed at reducing factors like fever, pain, infection, anxiety, dehydration, etc. If it is an abnormal tachycardia originating in the atria or ventricles, treatment varies depending on the specifics.

Depends: What is the root cause of your tachycardia? If it is dehydration then simple hydration. If it is anxiety than possibly nothing but time & calmness. Some conditions can require medication or procedures (e.g. Ablation). First order of business....Meet with a physician & take it from there.
