Is there a relationship between coQ10 use and reduction of SVT episodes (specifically focal atrial tachycardia), and if so what would be the recommend?

Is there a relationship between coQ10 use and reduction of SVT episodes (specifically focal atrial tachycardia), and if so what would be the recommend?

No, despite the ads,: no clinical trials (sponsored by independent organizations) have ever shown any benefit for CoQ10 supplements, including for people taking statins. Only a single trial, sponsored by marketers of CoQ10 supplements, has been interpreted as showing slight benefit for people with advanced, class 4, congestive heart failure. Lots of marketing, science support for eicosapentaenoic acid; not for CoQ10. ...Read more

Atrial Tachycardia (Definition)

Atrial tachycardia is a symptom in which a person's heart rate is faster than normal for his age or for the activity he is doing, and the electrical impulse for his heartbeats starts in the upper part of the heart (the atria). An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) ...Read more

What are the differences between supraventricular tachycardia and multifocal atrial tachycardia?

What are the differences between supraventricular tachycardia and multifocal atrial tachycardia?

SVT and MAT: Mat is a kind of svt. Usually mat implies significant cardiac or pulmonary pathology. Svt can happen in less abnormal hearts. ...Read more

How uncommon us atrial tachycardia and what causes it to start?

How uncommon us atrial tachycardia and what causes it to start?

Common: It's surprisingly common and can occur in normal hearts in the absence of heart disease. It can be caused by cardiac stimulants like caffeine, nicotine, amphetamine, alcohol, and certain medicines like bronchodilators, atropine, and adrenalin. Thyroid excess can cause it. Stress and lack of sleep can contribute. It occurs for no recognized reason in some. ...Read more

How can I treat paroxysmal atrial tachycardia?

How can I treat paroxysmal atrial tachycardia?

PAT : Go see a dr. Or a cardiologist to get pat treated. There are many options but without skilled medical help you won't be able to treat it. ...Read more

What is "intraoperative mapping atrial tachycardia"?

EP procedure: This is generally done in a cath lab using wires similar or pacemaker electrodes. They are inserted through blood vessels in the leg, and place into the heart. There they "read" electrical activity to determine where the abnormal conduction is taking place. Then the offending circuit can be severed using radio-frequency ablation. ...Read more

Paroxysmal atrial tachycardia: what are the symptoms?

Paroxysmal atrial tachycardia: what are the symptoms?

PAT: Pat symptoms are the same as any tachycardia. Palpitations, heart rushing, lightheaded, short of breath, chest pain possible, pounding sensation in chest and perhaps other sensations by individual. ...Read more

Do you need a pacemaker if you have atrial tachycardia?

Pacemaker: One solution for hard to treat atrial tachycardia may involve the use of a pacemaker; however, this is usually reserved for older people who can not tolerate other treatments, or they are ineffective. Medications can be tried. Catheter ablation is often a successful cure. Request a cardiac electrophysiology referral, to discuss options. ...Read more

What is the success rate of ablation of atrial tachycardia?

Great question: It's variable depending on location (left vs right sided). Talk to the electrophysiologist who would perform to get best information specific. ...Read more

How could ventricular tachycardia feel different from atrial tachycardia?

How could ventricular tachycardia feel different from atrial tachycardia?

No definite rules...: Can differentiate these 2 arrhythmia types, although ventricular tachycardia generally causes more severe symptoms such as chest pain, fainting and even a cardiac arrest. Atrial tachycardia almost never causes cardiac arrest, although can be felt as palpitations with lightheadedness or difficulty breathing. ...Read more

Atrial tachycardia - eps / rfa advised by the cardiologist. What does that mean?

Atrial tachycardia - eps / rfa advised by the cardiologist. What does that mean?

Ablation: Ablation therapy is done to destroy tissue in the heart that is causing electrical or mechanical problems. Usually the technique used is radiofrequency energy like microwaves but there are also other techniques. Most commonly these are performed by electrophysiology specialists. ...Read more

Atrial ectopic tachycardia vs atrial tachycardia? What's the difference?

Sinoatrial node.: The normal heart rate "pacemaker" center is in the sinoatrial node, a part of the right atrium. Ectopic atrial tachycardia means that the pacemaker region (the part that is setting the heart rate) is in another location, & is acting erratically. Atrial tachycardia implies that it is the sinoatrial node that is acting erratically. They are similar, but the heartbeat starts at different points. ...Read more

Can atrial tachycardia cause a pain in the center of your chest, like a "catch" type pain?

Yes.: Faster heart rates can lead to reduced blood supply to your heart, therefore pain... You need to investigate the causes with the help of a physician... Best luck and happy easter sunday! ...Read more
