Is a sinus tachycardia same thing as supraventricular tachycardia?

Is a sinus tachycardia same thing as supraventricular tachycardia?

No: Sinus tachycardia is the normal fast heart rate that results from a stressful situation, physically or emotionally (running, being upset, having fever, etc...). Svt is an arrhythmia that usually requires abnormalities of the electrical conduction system of the heart, and if frequent and troubling needs directed treatment. Sinus tachycardia does not require treatment of its own usually. ...Read more

Sinus (Definition)

In anatomy, a sinus is a cavity within a bone or other tissue. Most commonly found in the bones of the face and connecting with the nasal cavities. Sinus (anatomy), description of the general term paranasal sinuses, air cavities in the cranial bones, especially those near the nose, including: the maxillary sinuses, also called the maxillary antra and the largest of the ...Read more

Is a sinus tachycardia the same thing as supraventricular tachycardia?

Is a sinus tachycardia the same thing as  supraventricular tachycardia?

Depends: Depends on how fast or how slow, the cause for the abnormal rate and whether or not it is causing any symptoms. Both abnormally slow and fast heart beats can cause congestive heart failure and syncope (fainting). Persistent fast heart beats can cause weakness of heart muscle referred to as tachycardia induced cardiomyopathy. ...Read more

What is supraventricular ectopy? Is it benign? Is this the same as sinus tachycardia?

What is supraventricular ectopy? Is it benign? Is this the same as sinus tachycardia?

No. : Supra ventricular ectopy is electrical activity not originating at the sa node. Depending on how often and the number of ectopic sites will determine if it is benign or not. Sinus tach is a rapid hr, generally >100 <150, but the electrical impulse follow the normal pathway of sa node --> av node --> bundle oh hiss. Just faster than normal (60 -100 bpm). ...Read more

Is sinus tachycardia same thing as the atrial fibillliation?

Is sinus tachycardia same thing as the atrial fibillliation?

No: Sinus tachy is a fast heart rate > 100 beats per minute through the normal physiologic path...Sa node in atrium >av node>ventricles. Afib is multiple ectropic sites in the atria firing off and competing with the sa node.Both can be very fast but its a diffrent mechanism. ...Read more

How can heart rate go for it to be considered not sinus tachycardia?

How can heart rate go for it to be considered not sinus tachycardia?

Above 100: Sinus tachycardia is heart rhythm originating from the sinoatrial node , defined as a rate greater than 100 beats/min in an average adult. The normal resting heart rate in the average adult ranges from 60–100 beats/min. In some individuals can go up to 130 beats/min. Supraventricular tachycardia at least 100 beats a minute and may reach 300 beats a minute. ECG usually helps differentiate. ...Read more

Can heart rate of 180 (caught on 14 day loop) still be considered sinus tachycardia? What can cause this if it's not my heart? No exercise/anxiety

Can heart rate of 180 (caught on 14 day loop) still be considered sinus tachycardia?  What can cause this if it's not my heart? No exercise/anxiety

Unlikely: Maximum HR is age related. At your age, 180 can be due to sinus tachy but only with reason eg, strenuous exercise, severe pain, anxiety thyroid XS or infection. More likely you have supraventricular tachycardia, a common but pathological condition. Your doctor will discuss treatment options. Meanwhile avoid nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, pseudoephedrine, and recreational drugs. ...Read more

Significant palpitations. Had EKG, read as sinus tachycardia at 170 bpm. What can this be? 26 years old; no caffeine, drugs, etc. All normal labs

Significant palpitations.   Had EKG, read as sinus tachycardia at 170 bpm.  What can this be?  26 years old; no caffeine, drugs, etc.  All normal labs

Unlikely: I doubt you really have sinus tachycardia at 170. Although it's possible, I suspect this is a supraventricular tachycardia. EKG computers frequently misread this rhythm. Your EKG needs to be seen by a card-carrying cardiologist. While we're at it, you do too! ...Read more

I have inappropriate sinus tachycardia i'm on no medication and resting heart rate above 100 and slight movement to over 130 will it cause damage?

Needs investigation: Avoid all caffeine, see your physician to determine the exact rhythm. While some people can have sinus tachycardia, some may have supraventricular tachycardia and treatments will differ depending on the cause and underlying rhythm. ...Read more

Rapid Heart Beat (Definition)

Rapid heart beat is a symptom in which a person's heart is beating fast. A fast heart rate can be normal if a person is excited or exercising. Sometimes a rapid rate is called sinus tachycardia, atrial flutter, or atrial fibrillation, etc..., depending on the type of arrhythmia (heart ...Read more
