Is It Safe To Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome
Vicodin: Vicodin is a narcotic analgesic with tylenol (acetaminophen) added. It is moderately potent and addictive. Itself, it does not affect heart rate or cardiac conduction or cardiac functions. So, can be considered safe. Big picture is to be wary. Being habituated or dependent or addicted has adversity, and your heart can be affected by the narcotic valleys or withdrawal biology. Adrenalin is released. Heart may race ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: In general you should avoid drugs that affect conduction in the heart. Caffeine is also to be avoided as are alcohol, pseudephedrine (found in cold medicines) digoxin unless carefully monitored by your physician and smoking. Of course, avoid taking any recreational drugs. Tylenol with codeine taken as prescribed by a physician aware of your WPW should be safe. ...Read more
Pre-excitation: Wpw syndrome is commonly diagnosed on the basis of the surface ECG in an asymptomatic individual. In this case it is manifested as a delta wave, which is a slurred upstroke in the qrs complex that is associated with a short pr interval. The short pr interval and slurring of the qrs complex is actually the impulse making it through to the ventricles prematurely (across the accessory pathway) withou. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Congenital: Wpw is the syndrome associated with an extra (or accessory) pathway between the top (atria) and bottom (ventricle) chambers of the heart. Yes this is present from birth. Patients with the extra electrical connection may have episodes of extreme tachycardia (rapid heart beat). This can be treated with medication or by ablating the extra pathway in a cath lab. ...Read more

Been on Propranolol 20 mg 2 x daily for Wolff Parkinson white syndrome. Everyone tells me it's unsafe to take beta blocker for WPW? Is this true?
Not directly: Wpw is a heart condition associated with cardiac arrhythmia. The classic arrhythmia is supraventricular tachycardia. More serious rhythm problems can also occur and there is an increased risk of sudden death. During arrhythmia, cardiac output can drop, and some people have seizures during times of low cardiac output from arrhythmia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the treatment for Wolff-Parkinson-White (wpw) syndrome called in which extra pathway tissue is burned away during a cardiac catheterization?
Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome in a 24 year-old, who gets an ablation to resolve an VF focus, now wonders about sports without an ICD.....?
Palpitations: Usually the first sign other than being picked up on an EKG by accident, is in a person who develops a fast heart rate (an arrhythmia classified as supraventricular tachycardia). On occasion, the fast heart rate can lead to passing out (syncopal) episodes, so that will be the presenting symptom. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No.: Wolf parkinson white syndrome, aka pre-excitation due to the presence of an accessory pathway would not cause pvc's. Abnormal conduction of atrial impulses through the accessory pathway will lead to fast heart rates at times, this can become life threatening especially in the setting of atrial fibrillation with an inappropriately high rate of conduction leading to ventricular fibrillation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have just been diagnosed with Wolff Parkinson white syndrome is it still safe for me too run? I am training for a marathon!!
See cardiologist: There are treatments to prevent arrhythmias in patients with WPW and I would recommend speaking with your cardiologist for consideration of treatment as well as recommendations for management to keep you safe before you over exert yourself in your training. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
