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.

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 more

What's the difference between an svt, wolf-parkinson-white syndrome, and fibrilations?

What's the difference between an svt, wolf-parkinson-white syndrome, and  fibrilations?

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

I have wolf-parkinson-white syndrome with an svt. Would this cause chest pain? If so would the pain be caused by an "episode"?

WPW: Wpw is associated with svt and svt can certainly be symptomatic with chest pain. The pain would be related to the "episode". When folks have this we often have an electrophysiologist ablate the bypass tract to attempt to substantially cure the problem. ...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?

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 more

Does wolf parkinson white syndrome cause fluid to build up in my daughter's legs?

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 more

Can anyone have "wolf-parkinson-white syndrome?

Can anyone have "wolf-parkinson-white syndrome?

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

What is treatment for wolf parkinson white syndrome?

Various: The heart rhythm abnormalities associated with wolff-parkinson-white syndrome can be treated with a variety of antiarrhythmic medications. The arrhythmias can also be cured by altering the electrical structure of the heart using an invasive procedure called "ablation". ...Read more
