Can You Get Wolf Parkinson White Syndrome From Taking Antibiotics As A Child
How how would heart rate get if I had Wolf-Parkinson-white syndrome? My heart rate is usually in the 70s-80s. Sometime 100+ during activity.
WPW heart rate: The heart rate may accelerate from 120-200 beats per minute, but can also be associated with atrial fibrillation which can be in the 300's and even degenerate into ventricular fibrillation. It can also be normal. The pre-excitation syndrome can be diagnosed by ECG. Please see your PMD. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
SVT, WPW, Afib: Svt or supraventricular tachycardia is a condition in which the upper chamber of the heart causes the heart to beat very fast. Wpw or wolf parkinson white syndrome is a condition where te heart has a propensity to abnormal electrical conduction that may predispose people to have svt, atrial fibrillation (where the upper chamber of the heart beats chaotically), or other heart rhythm issues. ...Read more
If I have tachycardia does that mean I also have wolf Parkinson white syndrome? What's difference if not? What does that mean if so?
Not usually WPW: Tachycardia, or a rapid heart rate (more than 120 beats per minute in an adult) happens all the time to everybody in certain circumstances (running, fear, excitement, etc ). Some extreme forms of tachycardia are due to an electrical defect in the heart's conduction system & Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome is an uncommon form of it. An EKG can sometimes tell the cause of tachycardia, but not always ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: Wolff-parkinson-white (WPW) syndrome describes a condition where there are ECG abnormalities and a predisposition to a rapid heart rate known as supraventricular tachycardia (svt). In almost all patients, the heart function is normal. Very rarely a weak heart muscle is present in patients with WPW and they may have symptoms of heart failure. Even in this setting isolated leg swelling is not seen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
WPW: Yes. Wpw is the presence of ventricular pre-excitation due to an accessory pathway which can result in fast heart rhythms (i.e. Supra ventricular tachycardia). Risk stratification is important to determine the risk of sudden cardiac death. The main risk during these fast rhythms is usually syncope (fainting). Treatment involves ablation. I would speak with your cardiologist. ...Read more
