Which treatment works the best and fastest for tachycardia?

? cause: It depends on the type & cause. An ekg will determine the type of tachycardia. If it's occurs with normal conduction, treatment is directed at reducing factors like fever, pain, infection, anxiety, dehydration, etc. If it is an abnormal tachycardia originating in the atria or ventricles, treatment varies depending on the specifics. ...Read more

What is the life expectancy for people with ventricular tachycardia? How serious is ventricular tachycardia, and what kind of treatment is available?

Variable: Vt has a wide spectrum of severity. Some kinds cause no symptoms and are benign and others deteriorate rapidly to ventricular fibrillation and cause death. In the setting of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (your other question), VT is more serious and may require placement of an icd. Icds have been shown to greatly improve prognosis. ...Read more

I have sinus tachycardia what treatment options are out there? What is sinus tachycardia? Could this been caused by reaction to mobic?

I have sinus tachycardia what treatment options are out there? What is sinus tachycardia? Could this been caused by reaction to mobic?

Sinus tachycardia: Means your normal heart beat is faster than 100 BPM. This can be normal as the range of normal is 40 to 120. It is unlikely to be caused by mobic however pain can cause the heart rate to increase so the reason you are taking mobic might be the reason you are tachycardic. Treatment is to address the cause not the rate. Fever, dehydration, anxiety, anemia, pain can all cause this. ...Read more

Treatment for left ventricular hypertrophy caused by uncontrolled high blood press & tachycardia?

Meds / cardiology: Lvh in most cases is a physiologic response to increased impediment to forward flow (hypertension or valvular obstruction most commonly). Occasionally a hereditary LVH (asymmetric) can occur which can lead to dynamic outflow obstruction (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy). This can lead to symptoms of obstruction (chest pain), or tachycardia and even death. It is diagnosed by echo w help from cardio. ...Read more

Cardiology #: What is the significance of benign tachycardia with a heart rate of 100? What could be a treatment for it, if one is needed?

Cardiology #: What is the significance of benign tachycardia with a heart rate of 100? What could be a treatment for it, if one is needed?

Tachycardia: Normal heart rate usually run for 60-100, although there is some variance in 'normal.' If you have a sustained rate above 100 I would suggest getting it checked. There are many underlying causes of tachycardia, many of which can be serious. Don't necessarily worry about treatment to reduce the rate until you get it checked out. ...Read more

Some gentle advice..: You must have been diagnosed by an md/do. Your case sounds complicated. How does the md who diagnosed you want to treat you? If you want another opinion, see another doctor. That's your right. Answering a question like yours is explicitly not the purpose of this website. For better or worse, our bodies aren't 6-cylinder chevys. You goof with your car, you can always get another one. ...Read more

Sinus tachycardia treatment: which is better, ibravadine or bisoprolol? Avg resting HR 90-115, normotensive, no other comorbidities, exercise daily!

Sinus tachycardia: Inappropriate sinus tachycardia (IST) is a syndrome characterized by excessive resting heart rate or disproportional increase in heart rate during exercise. Metoprolol and ivabradine a new drug which effects the sinus node exert similar effects on resting heart rate but ivabradine is more effective in relieving symptoms during exercise or daily activity. ...Read more

My father 70yr, diagnosed ventricular bigeminy. Is it dangerous? Can amiodarone help controlling it? Treatment options for ventricular tachycardia?

Depends: The underlying cause for the rythm needs to be worked up and treated. If all correctable conditions are fixed., then eps may be indicated and ablation if reasonable. A defibrillator if poor heart function. Otherwise amio is reasonable but has its issues. It can affect the lungs, liver and thyroid to mention a few. Close monitoring is reccomended. ...Read more

Tachycardia, hypertension, trace to mild tricuspid regurgitation, trace pulmonic valvular insufficiency on ecg. What's this mean and what treatment?

Probably nothing: Mild degree of tricuspid and pulmonic regurgitation are often seen normally on echocardiogram in the absence of any other finding. At your age, hypertension and tachycardia, often labile, are often emotional/psychological but needs to be determined if you do not have medical conditions such as thyroid that can give the same symptoms. See your MD ...Read more

I have been to the ER for a rapid heartbeat. Sometimes it's diagnosed as sinus tachycardia and sometimes atrial fibrillation. I have tried cardyzeme and metopral without much success. What happens if I don't seek treatment next time?

I have been to the ER for a rapid heartbeat. Sometimes it's diagnosed as sinus tachycardia and sometimes atrial fibrillation. I have tried cardyzeme and metopral without much success. What happens if I don't seek treatment next time?

I: I agree with dr. Guyton's excellent and thorough answer and would like to emphasize that with atrial fibrillation there are two main issues:
1) heart rate - a fast heart rate is typically what most people present with, and typically can be managed with medications to control heart rate such as the two you described, although there are others. Sustained high heart rates are not good for the heart, but as long as you are not having chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, or loss of consciousness then you can call your physician before rushing to the er.
2) stroke - afib presents a very real increase risk of stroke if not properly treated. For this reason, an accurate diagnosis is a must, and if it is indeed afib the you should discuss with your physician whether you are high enough risk to require blood thinners such as Coumadin (warfarin) or pradaxa. This is a long term risk so can be discussed in the outpatient setting with your docotor or a cardiologist. ...Read more

52 years male, diabetic and hypertensive having sudden weight loss, trembles, sweating, tachycardia, (T3 (liothyronine) & T4 raised TSH dec) what is Diag & treatment?

Hyperthyroidism: Hi. If you're hyperthyroid, I have to assume you've seen a doctor who ordered the thyroid labs. If that doctor isn't comfortable treating you, get a referral to one who is. Treatment, if needed (one type is self limited and goes away on its own) would either be radioactive iodine or an antithyroid medication (usually methimazole). Your doc may treat you with a beta-blocker to slow down your heart. ...Read more

Any update on treatment for sustained ventricular tachycardias?

Yea: There is VT foci cardiac ablation, there is scar mapping- if VT is related to scar, there is mapping using pacing- if the VT causes your blood pressure to drop, there are a hand- full of anti arrhythmic medications that can be used and, of course, there is the implantable cardioverter defibrillator. Request to speak with a cardiac electrophysiologist about your options. ...Read more
