Cause Of Nonsustained Ventricular Tachycardia
Nonsustained VT: Best way is to see a cardiologist and get worked up for diagnosis and cause of the nonsustained VT and then discuss the findings and recommendations with the dr. Who has information specific to you. Not as simple as you hope. ...Read more
Is it true that nonsustained supra ventricular tachycardia is the same as nonsustained ventricular tachycardia?
No: Supraventricular tachycardia signifies that the abnormal rhythm arises from a part of the heart above the atrioventricular node (that normally conducts atrial electrical impulses to the ventricles for ventricular excitation), whereas a ventricular tachycardia originates from the ventricular myocardium itself (below the level of the atrioventricular node). ...Read more
Are odd Supraventricular beats on24Hr Holter the same as (or connected to ?)Nonsustained Ventricular Tachycardia <30sec ?
No: Supraventricular is NOT ventricular. There is a significant difference clinically, treatment wise and prognostically for extra beats from the atrium vs. extra from the ventricle. ...Read more
What to do if I have nonsustained ventricular tachycardia, would this be classed as a long term heart disease?
Yes: this has to be studied and to try and determine why this occurred. VT can be dangerous if it becomes sustained. Speak to a cardiologist about the plans for you , they may consider placing an internal monitor that fires when you go into a VT. ...Read more
Yes: Black-outs (or syncope) are often caused by transient reductions in blood flow to the brain from a variety of causes. With ventricular tachycardia, the abnormal rhythm may be associated with a reduction in cardiac output and a temporary reduction in brain blood flow that can lead to syncope. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not really pulseless: When VT occurs at a fast enough rate, there is inadequate time for ventricular filling, cardiac output falls, and blood pressure falls. You may not be able to palpate a pulse but an arterial line would show a waveform that is reduced in amplitude. Rate is the key. As tissue perfusion fails, acidosis, hypoxemia and hyperkalemia result leading to ventricular fibrillation and death. ...Read more
If someone had angina from a quick BP drop but stabilizes will it cause damage or cause ventricular tachycardia?
No permanent injury: If the angina was caused by the blood pressure drop (caused, for example, by a medication), and it resolved (and the heart rhythm was normal) when the blood pressure returned to norma, l it is unlikely it caused permanent damage. However, if the angina was the cause of the blood pressure drop, that would be more concerning. Either way, this needs to be carefully evaluated by a doc. ...Read more
Usually low risk: Mitral valve redundancy, usually called prolapse, usually produces no symptoms or minor symptoms. If the valve leak is trivial, that's very good news and serious complications including ventricular tachycardia are not expected because the left ventricle is not under strain.. ...Read more
Would a run on non-sustained ventricular tachycardia of 4 beats cause a compensatory pause after?
Yes: But more important is looking for the reason you may have non-sustained VT. This would require a detailed evaluation by your physician. ...Read more
I've had multiple long runs of monomorphic Non-Sustained Ventricular tachycardia. Echo & stress test normal. What causes this?
Many possible causes: certainly structural heart disease such as coronary disease or heart muscle disease can cause ventricular tachycardia and in the absence of this electrolyte abnormalities such high or low potassium or magnesium or other conditions such as right ventricular outflow tract navy or brugada syndrome or long QT syndrome or other genetic conditions can cause ventricular tachycardia ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will ranitidine cause my PVCs to be worse or trigger ventricular tachycardia? Scared of taking. Structurally normal heart with benign pvc
Maybe but: rare , can cause fast or slow heart rate , very low risk can try it and see , but if trying to decrease reflux do reflux precautions; no food 3 hrs before sleep[or snack only] , elevate head of bed 6 inches for gravity to psuh food down, 6 small meals/d to avoid overfill of stomach , omeprazine 30 min. before breakfast works much better, but a study has shown this may cause heart failure and heart ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Arterial blood gas results: PH- 7.431, pCO2- 40.1, HCO3- 26.1, BE- 1.7. Are these normal or elevated? Could this cause Ventricular tachycardia?
Normal blood gas ABG: The result you've provided so far seem within the reference range for most blood gas machines - so, "average". One result you didn't list is the pO2, which is a measure of the oxygen content of arterial blood. A low pO2 can cause ventricular tachycardia (VT); however, I suspect the ABG was used as part of a wider panel of tests to help determine cause of VT. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test ...Read more
Normal stress test, normal CTA w/calcium score, normal echo. I had 2 runs of non sustained ventricular tachycardia. What can cause this? I am Only 20
Does coronary artery disease directly cause ventricular tachycardia or is it after heart attacks and damage etc?
Ventricular: Not all are dangerous. But some are. In these cases your heart may go into ventricular fibrillation and your heart stops popping blood to your body. Or, in some rare cases, especially you have an additional problem such as weak heart muscle, ventricular tachycardia can kill you. Electrophysiology docs like my self can differentiate ones with risk from none risky ones. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No/That's a problem!: Ventricular tachycardia is one of the most life-threatening abnormal heart rhythms. It can be associated with angina, but I am sure many doctors here have been called urgently to a hospital patient's bedside with v-tach much to the inquisitive look of the patient as they are wheeled urgently to intensive care for more careful monitoring and treatment. So no, not generally, but it is serious. ...Read more
