For example, for a very limited av nodal reentrant tachycardia once or twice a year that does not last long and does not go fast, the effects are usually benign. However, if the heart goes very fast you could pass out. Atrial fibrillation of any rate increases stroke risk. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Origin, prognosis: Supra-ventricular tachycardia originates in the upper chambers of the heart (atria) and ventricular tachycardia in the lower chambers (ventricles). In very general terms, ventricular tachycardia may carry a more worrisome prognosis than its supra-ventricular counterpart but in many cases both types can be treated and in some cases (particularly supra-ventricular) can be "cured".
