Is there a relationship between coQ10 use and reduction of SVT episodes (specifically focal atrial tachycardia), and if so what would be the recommend?
No, despite the ads,: no clinical trials (sponsored by independent organizations) have ever shown any benefit for CoQ10 supplements, including for people taking statins. Only a single trial, sponsored by marketers of CoQ10 supplements, has been interpreted as showing slight benefit for people with advanced, class 4, congestive heart failure. Lots of marketing, science support for eicosapentaenoic acid; not for CoQ10. ...Read more
What is different btwn cardio workout and stressful situations where hr goes to 150? Both train the heart, but one is healthy and the other is not?
Exercise, stress: stress involves a wide variety of internal physiologic changes that alter the organism internally widely including adverse changes in immune function, inducing endothelial vascular dysfunction etc. Mediated via a variety of hormonal and neurotransmitter mechanisms. Physical exercise for purposes of cardiovascular conditioning does not trigger all of the same mechanisms and is thus preferred ...Read more
Can smoking increase the pressure in the lungs,that is moderate, very fast? Or it needs time? Can it affect heart valves with mild leaking?
Smoking has many: deleterious (bad) effects on both the heart and the lungs. When someone has smoked for a sufficient amount of time the lung changes can result in increased pulmonary pressures and worsening of leaking heart valves. Don't smoke! It is bad for you! ...Read more
Ii have pvcs frequent, multifocal and form, couplets, and big ad trig. Are pvcs mote common in lv.Or rv? Is one more dangerous than the othee?
Freq, multifocal PVC: Pvcs mainly originate from the rv outflow tract, but some originate from from the lv outflow tract, mitral and tricuspid valve annulus. A major concern is that pvcs may initiate vt, polymorphic VT and ventricular fibrillation. This risk associated with pvcs is usually limited to patients with significant underlying heart disease or at risk of developing heart disease. Need to see a cardiologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heart rate faster and found that extra pathway in heart. Suggested RFA using Ensite. Is this procedure safe and any side effects in future?
Safe: There might be a possibility of recurrence if RFA is incomplete ...Read more
Usually Not: Pvc's are usually not dangerous. Sometimes increased frequency can lead to other heart arrhythmias, but this is less common. If bothersome, sometimes medication can be prescribed, and cutting out caffeine from the diet can be helpful. An ECG through your primary care provider or cardiologist would be appropriate at this time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had a full cardiac workup all normal. Is pvcs in both ventricle benign? Common? Is there other people that have pvcs in both ventricles?
Fairly common: Premature ventricular contractions (pvcs) are a common arrhythmia, often described as skipped beats. Pvcs may originate from different locations within either ventricle. Pvcs are usually benign & may be caused by structural damage, electrolyte imbalance, stimulants, or happen without cause. However, pvcs may also indicate serious heart problems, so you should see your doctor regularly to monitor. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

What level of nicotine begins to create or aggrevate ventricular arrhythmias, and otherwise block up potassium channels? I'm assuming the amount in tomatoes is not enough, but what is the level? Nicotine helped sleep apnea and orthostatic intol.
Recommend specialist: Sounds like u trying to quit/ lower smoking but concern about arrhytmia and use of nicotine " off label" for sleep apnea relieve. You deal with complex medical conditions. Nicotine is a stimulant and hard to say which dose is " safe". Recommend to see cardiologist or " drug rehab" specialit for further assistance.,Also check with pulmonalogist for sleep apnea treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not quite the same: Multifocal pvcs means multiple areas in the ventricles of the heart that are firing to stimulate contraction early (premature ventricular contraction). The can be in different parts of either the right or left ventricle, or both. So, having pvcs originate in both ventricles would indeed be multifocal, not all multifocal pvcs are from both ventricles. And not all pvcs are bad! often common. ...Read more

Please explain how a pacemaker does/does not control atrial fib. Also, other than heart cath, how can plaque be detected? Thanks these questions are in regards to my father's health. He has a pacemaker to control low heart rate, but pacemaker output has
Yes, : Yes, there are other options for treating atrial fibrillation as well as other diagnostic tests that can be performed to detect clots int the heart. Atrial fibrillation is an arrythmia where the person is a high risk for developing clots within the heart because the heart is unable to effectively pump blood to the body, leading to pooling of blood in the heart. Atrial fibrillation can be treated with medication or ablation, which work to get the heart's primary pacemaker to resume function. Another procedure that can be done is cardioversion. In a cardioversion, an electric shock is delivered to the heart to 'shock' the heart back to the person's normal rhythm. This procedure can be done for a person with a pacemaker, however the doctor must take measures to ensure no damage to the device. There are imaging tests, such as an echocardiogram, that can help a physician to determine the presence of clots in your heart. Echocardiography uses sound waves to create pictures of your heart. This test can detect areas of the heart where blood is not flowing properly, indicating a possible clot or blockage. Also, this test is useful for identifying parts of the heart that are not contracting well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
