Pregnant With Svt
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
27 wks pregnant with twins,known PE taking blood thinners ,resting heart rate 120,all cardic tests are fine,can I have normal delivery?
What do you advise if I was diagnosed with premature ventricular contractions, meaning irregular heart rhythm.?
Speak to cardio: There are several forms of PVC if you are having several a minute spaced apart then there is little to worry about or do. If they are occurring two or three in a row then you should consider medication or a conduction study. Discuss this with a board certified cardiologist ...Read more
Recently diagnosed with Sjogren's & APS. I wonder if autoimmune can causing arrhytmias? I have hx of SVT and VT before ablation & wearing a pacemaker.
There are extremely: rare autoimmune conditions that can affect heart rhythm. It is unlikely this is the cause of your SVT and VT especially since you had an abatable focus. These autoimmune causes of arrhythmia are not treated with ablation and pacing so your autoimmune disease is unlikely to be related. ...Read more
Can afib attack terminate gradually? I have been in afib for 10 days but pulse now feeling more regular (with some irregular beats).
Is it nirmal to have tachycardia during pregnancy, 20 wks pregnant with twins resting hearbeats 106 if walk goes as high as 186.ecg scans are fine?
Not unusual: It may not be "normal", but it is not unusual to have a high resting heart rate during pregnancy, as the resting metabolic rate has to increase (to pump enough blood for the fetus). Also, the blood volume increases, along with total body water, & these changes place a stress on the heart which responds by pumping faster. The normal ECG is reassuring. Rest! Best of luck w/ the pregnancy, & congrats ...Read more

Suffering with pvc ectopic beats for years with runs of 5-6 pvc. My ECHO and ECG however was 100% normal. Likley I go into Ventricular Tachycardia??
Take seriously: i recommend a consultation with a cardiac electro physiologist. Recent studies have correlated the amount of PVCs a person has over a 24 hour period with the development of a weakening of the heart muscle (CHF). Therefore, a thorough evaluation and frequent follow up needs to be undertaken with consideration for medications that suppress PVCs while also being useful for preventing weak hearts. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my husband has just been diagnosed with a-fib & high heart beat & taking betapace,zorcor,digoxin,coumadin (warfarin).?
Complex question: This is a pretty tough question for a simple answer without knowing a bunch more details. He really needs a good cardiologist to look him over carefully. I suspect if he has such a complex history he already has a decent cardiologist ...Read more
Have dysautonomia. Flecainide&nadolol for lots of arrhythmia. Bigeminy, tach etc. 2 failed ablations. Had ST under gen anesth. Would PM/ICD help?
Discuss it with doc: You've given me a lot of information but more is needed. Sometimes the cardiac electro physiologist ( sub specialty trained cardiologist) will consult with a subspecialty neurologist in difficult cases. Get more than one opinion if you feel uncomfortable with the situation. ...Read more
