Flying With Supraventricular Tachycardia
Neither: Neither is worse, both require treatment when they cause symptoms. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sinus Rhythm with RBBB with LAFB withBifascicular Block,left axis deviation. HR 59 BP normal,little dizzy?
Dizzy: You have some evidence for heart electrical blockage on your EKG. This make at higher risk for heart block. Would expect pauses or slower rate if problem. Is dizziness spinning or do you feel you might black out? First symptom vertigo second more concerning. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not usually: Not typically; however, if you also have an accessory pathway (wolff-parkinson-white syndrome), this is a unique situation where af is known to cause very rapid ventricular activation during af, which can lead to vf. Rapid ventricular response may cause cardiac weakening over time, which in turn may increase the risk of vf. ...Read more
Can a paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and av node reentry tachycardia increase the risk for a heart attack?
Holter showed pacs, sinus tachycardia, sinus arrhythmia. Cardiologist says other than the tachy otherwise normal. Sinus arrhythmia/pacs are normal?
Yes: Especially in young patients.Get a more detailed answer ›
On diltiazemCD, Flecainide, xarelto to prevent recurrence Afib. Atrial bigeminy at rest and sinus rhythm with any exertion.
Any concerns. Asymptomati?
Fib: Yes fib is a concerning disease. Follow your Drs suggestions. They know you best. ...Read more
It depends: Whether supraventricular tachycardia (svt) causes problems in a fetus depends on how often and for how long the fetus remains in svt, and on the rate of the svt (how fast). Typically, if a fetus is having problems with svt, a fetal cardiac ultrasound will detect that the heart function is declining and there may be evidence for abnormal fluid collections (so called non-immune hydrops). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do you tell apart an automatic atrial ectopic tachycardia with exercise from innapropriate sinus tachycardia?
Atrial tachycardia: Need a cardiac eletrophysiologic study.Get a more detailed answer ›
Only in a Very Few: Generally, the answer to this is a very solid "no." this is a rare complication of people with another condition (on top of their afib) called wolff-parkinson-white syndrome (or wpw). In certain patients having both conditions, the top chamber is too-well connected to the bottom and can trigger ventricular fibrillation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
48 HR heart monitor results "infrequent ectopy with no atrial ectopics and 0.1% of heart beat being ectopic" please explain in laymans terms?
Few extra beats: Ectopy means essentially "extra beats" usually coming earlier than expected in your normal heart rhythm cycle. Atrial ectopics come from the upper part of the heart and are often benign. Ventricular ectopics come from the lower chamber of the heart. A frequency of 0.1% is very low. Continue to monitor with your doctor! ...Read more
Sure: It's common and treatable. Stay in touch with your doctor.

What arrhythmias are associated with an early first beat, erratic beats, tachycardia, dizziness,sob,chest pains, pounding hb, near syncope? Dangerous?
Worrisome....: The symptoms of chest pain, shortness of breath and near syncope are worrisome. Many arrhythmias can cause the symptoms you describe. The best way to diagnose an arrhythmia is with a Holter monitor, which will record your heart continuously for the time prescribed. See your doctor or, if your symptoms are severe, go to the ER for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
Alcohol and SVT: Alcohol is known to damage the conduction system of the heart and cause all kinds of arrythmia. Svt is caused by an anomaly of that system. Alcohol surely unavoidably aggravates that anomaly, besides turning the heart muscle into a mass of jello that has no strength to pump blood properly (reduced ejection fraction). No alcohol abuse. Period ! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heart and lung: Heart and lung work together, some people develop cardiac asthma if their heart muscle is weak. If asthma existed before the heart issues, they are treated independently. Some heart medications, such as beta blockers, can worsen asthma, some don't. It is a complex issue and needs to be discussed with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
