Does Homeopathy Work To Cure Or Control Svt
No, no, and no!: The best treatment for symptomatic WPW is radiofrequency catheter ablation. Even allopathic drugs are not usually an adequate treatment. Wpw is potentially serious with heart rates of 220-300 or more and curable. Don't mess with it. Svt can be handled with medication in many cases or ablation when meds fail or aren't tolerated. ...Read more

How to perform a Valsalva Maneuver for SVT? If it didn't work, what other maneuver that I can do safely?
Valsalva: A valsalva maneuver is bearing down as if having a bowel movement, or forceful exhalation against a closed airway as in closing mouth pinching nose shut while pressing out as if blowing up a balloon. Also massaging the carotid artery just under the angle of the jaw can arrest svt but do this sitting down or laying down as the drop in pulse can be dramatic. ...Read more
Very effectively.: The supraventricular tachycardia is a short-circuit of the normal heart conduction pathways. Usually there is a small area that, if removed, would Prohibit the circuit from conducting and therefore block the svt. The catheter tip generates rf energy to scar the heart tissue in a small area, which prevents it from conducting electricity. ...Read more

Why does bending down cause my SVT to go into overdrive. My heartrate got as high as 186bpm when I bent down and got up. Heart felt out of control.?
There are many: Potential triggers initiating SVT. Pressure changes in your chest induced by bending, stooping, yawning or holding your breath change the blood return to your heart and thereby its volume. These changes can induce premature beats which trigger your SVT. It sounds like you need evaluation and treatment since you do not appear to be on any and it is causing you concern. ...Read more
Probably not: It is unlikely that your pills would be causing your svt. Talk to your doctor about whether your arrhythmia increases your risk for blood clots. If it does, you should make sure you are not using a contraceptive method which contains estrogen. You can consider the iud, condoms, progesterone-only pill, or injectable (depo-provera), none of which contain estrogen. ...Read more
Is it safe to take propranolol for Wolff Parkinson white syndrome? It works well & decreased SVT episodes by 80% already.
Generally no: This is a very interesting question. If you truly have WPW, your management (& answer to such a question) should be by your cardiologist. If it is known that you have only orthodromic AVRT (genarally a concealed accessory pathway) then propranolol could be used safely. Otherwise, it could pose danger if you develop atrial fib. However, the modern treatment for WPW w/ frequent SVT is ablation. ...Read more
Yes: You should make sure your dentist knows that you have been diagnosed with svt as well as any medications you are taking. For your safety, your dentist may want to have your heart monitored during your treatment. ...Read more
24/m had a panic attack/episode of svt. Picked up blood work today, magnesium at 1.8mg/dl which seems low, and glucose at 128mg/dl - any concerns?
Any alcohol problem?: The tachycardia needs a little work up ; thyroid status, alcohol history, hydration status are few to mention. As far as the elevated blood sugar, family history of diabetes is of paramount importance. It also depends what time of the day in what condition the sample is collected. Random blood sugar, postprandial blood sugar and fasting blood sugar gives totally different clinical scenarios ...Read more

If propranolol works for my SVT, would Sectral (acebutolol) also be a good choice if doctor wants me to switch to Cardio-Selective?

I'm taking bisoprolol to control SVT (hrt rate will be 120-180bpm without b blocker) is my HRT rate high enough to be considered for catheter ablation?
Yes: You are rather young to be committed to lifelong drug therapy, albeit beta blocker. If your cardiologist can diagnose your SVT more specifically and if it is one amenable to ablation to achieve cure (i.e. free of disease and free of meds thereafter), I would seriously consider it. Get a good, highly qualified electrophysiologist with a lot of experience to render an opinion and consider ablation. ...Read more
I had catheter ablation for SVT and atrial flutter yesterday. Should I feel a different heartbeat if I'm cured?
Adenosine In ER for emergency treatment of severe SVT episode. Could it not work and/or cause cardiac arrest/death?
Adenosine is useful: For the treatment of a certain type of SVT but not all SVTs. In addition, it is not always affective with an initial dose and requires second higher doses to be administered. It is unlikely but not impossible to cause cardiac arrest and/or death. Most SVTs are curable by radio frequency ablation in the hands of a qualified Electrophysiologist. Make an appointment for evaluation. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with SVT & had ablation that didn't work. My chest pains are getting worse & I am lightheaded more. Could I have AFIB?
Was in ER last night, adverse reaction to OTC medication, SVT along with virus. Blood work showed BNP at 215?? They didn't show concern. Is that ok?
BNP: Not sure why they checked your brain natiuretic protein levels but the normal values are 0–99 picograms per milliliter (pg/mL) or 0–99 nanograms per liter (ng/L). But tests can exceed so-called normal limits but can only be interpreted in the context of a clinical condition. An ER is not the best place to evaluate this. Go and see a cardiologist who can evaluate you quickly. Best wishes. ...Read more
Blood pressure has been 120/45-50 recently. Is this concerning? Could it be heart failure? I have WPW syndrome and on propranolol to control SVT.
Ok: This BP is ok. I'm frequently asked about "my diastolic BP being too low". Usually it's inconsequential-even factitious due to inadequacy of many home BP monitoring kits to take diastolic BPs. I usually don't get hot and bothered by pts "low" diastolic BPs-only the high ones (ie over 90. Best wishes! ...Read more
