EP Cardio said NSVT, in person like me, normal LV function, and no history of repeated loss consciousness and no family history of SCD is harmless, Agree?

EP Cardio said NSVT, in person like me, normal LV function, and no history of repeated loss consciousness and no family history of SCD is harmless, Agree?

Probably: How long were the periods of NSVT? Were you symptomatic, why did you have the EP study? Is there a secondary cause for it such as medical illness, drugs, electrolytes, thyroid? Difficult to answer but those are some of the issues. ...Read more

J point slurring lateral/inferior demonstrating ERP.2 documented cases of monomorphic NSVT. Structurally normal heart. EP is not worried. Should I be?

Vent tachycardia: Relatively uncommonly ventricular tachycardia may occur in individuals with structurally normal hearts. This is known as idiopathic ventricular tachycardia and in the monomorphic form coincides with little or no increased risk of sudden cardiac death. In general, idiopathic ventricular tachycardia occurs in younger individuals diagnosed with VT. While the causes of idiopathic VT are not known, in general it is presumed to be congenital, and can be brought on by any number of factors.
You should confirm that this is the thinking of your cardiologist and electrophysiologist. In general, ventricular tachycardia can be a serious condition which bears careful watching and followup. ...Read more

Is sotalol a dangerous medication? I have NSVT with a structurally normal heart and normal QT interval. My EP is recommending this to me. Pros? Cons?

Is sotalol a dangerous medication? I have NSVT with a structurally normal heart and normal QT interval. My EP is recommending this to me. Pros? Cons?

NSVT: All drugs are dangerous in that they may cause problems you would never have if you did not take them. You and your teams task is to weigh the risk of taking one vs the risk of not taking one. Your EP is the expert to discuss this with as he she or it knows your whole story including family Hx best. I would not rely on a web site for making decisions on this issue. ...Read more

Just felt a string of strong heartbeats that were a little faster than normal- like beat beat BEATBEATBEATBEAT beat beat- could it be nsvt? I had PVCs and needed an ablation for them but this was different - no sensation of a skipped beat.

Possibly, but...: Given your history of irregular heart rhythm requiring ablation, I would advise follow up with your heart specialist or PCP should this continue. Especially if it becomes longer or more frequent or you experience lightheadedness or chest pain. Irregular beats are not uncommon, and can be precipitated by stress, alcohol, caffeine, infection, etc. Simply coughing can sometimes break them. Needs eval. ...Read more

QRS duration better: Clue, ideally <80 msec. QRS notching, esp. If new & QRS >80 msec is c/w subendocardial injury of purkinje fibers resulting in intraventricular conduction delay (even though called "normal"). "Structurally normal" does not exclude this; central 95.8% of common is called normal. Arterial Disease typically begins later childhood, though commonly asymptomatic for decades, see: http://goo.

Left atrium volume index of 36 cc/m2. Is this significant? Everything else on Echo & cardiac MRI was normal. History of NSVT.

Left atrium volume index of 36 cc/m2. Is this significant? Everything else on Echo & cardiac MRI was normal. History of NSVT.

Probably not but che: Ask your Cardiologist to see if your left atrium is enlarged or not on the pictures. During an echocardiogram, many measurements (about 25) are taken on grainy pictures so just by pure chance, there's a 50-50 chance that at least 4 measurements will be off. If only 1 measurement I'd off, you cannot draw conclusions from it. If more measurements support a diagnosis, you'll need Cardiology help. GL! ...Read more

Get 3-8 either PVC or PACS in a row. When I jump up my hr jumps back into normal rhythm. Echo normal. Happens rarely so no ecg. Could it be VT or NSVT?

Doubt it: If you get short of breath or lightheaded, it would be good to see a doctor and have a holter monitor to try and catch the extra beats to make a diagnosis if it occurs more often. ...Read more

ST segment depression when exercising. Cardiac MRI, calcium/coronary ct and echo were all normal. History of NSVT. What could this be? Recommendation?

Talk to cardiologist: A depressed ST segment usually means some degree of coronary disease and in your case it can be best answered by the cardiologist who ordered these tests. In the meanwhile avoid strenuous exertion until you get this issue clarified. ...Read more

Can someone explain an EP study to me? I'm having one to evaluate my NSVT episodes.

Catheters: Venous access will be obtained, and through the iv lines, multi electrode catheters (thin, flexible wires) will be advanced to the heart to make measurements of electrical activity.

A fancy pacemaker system will be used to stimulate the heart in an attempt to initiate your arrhythmia. Drugs may also be infused to help with this.

Once found, the arrhythmia can be fixed (either frozen or heated) ...Read more

Can an NSVT be mistaken as monomorphic when really polymorphic in etiology? I have a long QT, syncope with exertion, and NSVT but NSVT said tobebenign

Can an NSVT be mistaken as monomorphic when really polymorphic in etiology? I have a long QT, syncope with exertion, and NSVT but NSVT said tobebenign

NSVT = nonsust VT?: Your abbreviations need some clarification. Is NSVT a supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) or a nonsustained ventricular tachycardia (VT)? Polymorphic VT can be mistaken for MVT as it is seen on a telemetry (single channel) tracing. Only by continuous 12-lead EKG can you exclude polymorphic VT (AKA torsades de pointe or TDP). Use HealthTap Prime or TTYD, as we are limited to 400 characters here. GL. ...Read more

I am having an EP study to evaluate why I am having repetitive episodes of NSVT. Will I be asleep for this or is the patient typically awake?

Probably awake: Sometimes mild sedation is used especially is you are nervous or agitated. With this you would be awake. If it is clear that you are going to be electrically shocked, conscious sedation may be used. With this you would be asleep but not unconscious. If no shock is necessary, and you are calm, there may be no need for sedation at all. ...Read more

Cardiologist said I have Supraventicular Ectopic beats From24hr Holter 4yrs ago I think I now have NSVT <3sec few times a year significant in my case?

NSVT usually means: Non Sustained Ventricular Tachycardia. Is that what you mean? If you do then you should stay on your beta blocker to reduce the risk for sustained arrhythmia. In addition if you are symptomatic you should consider EP to ablate the focus and resolve your symptoms. If you mean something other than Ventricular tachycardia you would still benefit from EP evaluation and continued beta blocker. ...Read more

Is nsvt serious? My pulse used to race a lot and on the holter monitor an arrhythmia showed up. I'm on 10 mg bid propranolol and still have palps.

Is nsvt serious? My pulse used to race a lot and on the holter monitor an arrhythmia showed up. I'm on 10 mg bid propranolol and still have palps.

Depends: It's the condition of your heart, not the specific rhythm that determines how serious it is. That said, it's a bit unusual to see nsvt in people with completely normal hearts, so a thorough investigation is indicated. At a minimum, that would include an echo, stress test, chest xray, and lab work. ...Read more

Is it true that nonsustained supra ventricular tachycardia is the same as nonsustained ventricular tachycardia?

No: Supraventricular tachycardia signifies that the abnormal rhythm arises from a part of the heart above the atrioventricular node (that normally conducts atrial electrical impulses to the ventricles for ventricular excitation), whereas a ventricular tachycardia originates from the ventricular myocardium itself (below the level of the atrioventricular node). ...Read more
