Is an upright P wave V1 and inverted P wave aVL with tachycardia indicative of ectopic rhythm? Other ekg shows biphasic P wave V1, upright P wave aVL

Is an upright P wave V1 and inverted P wave aVL with tachycardia indicative of ectopic rhythm? Other ekg shows biphasic P wave V1, upright P wave aVL

If the tachycardia: Is occurring at rest with changes in the P wave morphology then it might be an ectopic atrial tachycardia. If it is occurring during exercise it is not diagnostic and may still be a normal sinus mechanism. ...Read more

Rhythm (Definition)

Rhythm "any regular recurring motion, symmetry may be generally defined as a movement marked by the regulated succession of strong and weak elements, or of opposite or different conditions, this general meaning of regular recurrence or pattern in time may be applied to a wide variety of cyclical natural phenomena having a periodicity or frequency of anything microseconds ...Read more

I was given azitrhomycin for tonsillitis and have tachycardia and mvp? Any bad reaction? I read it could be bad for people with heart rhythm problems.

My doctor told me I have a very benign and common heart rhythm problem called sinus tachycardia, what does this mean and do I need medication?

My doctor told me I have a very benign and common heart rhythm problem called sinus tachycardia, what does this mean and do I need medication?

No: Sinus tachycardia occurs when the natural pacemaker goes fast. It is normal for this to occur with pain, anxiety or exertion. It is a natural compensatory mechanism of your body and does not require treatment. ...Read more

What causes sinus tachycardia, dizziness, and rhythm changes when standing, after eating a meal, and after waking up? Ekg and echocardiogram normal

What causes sinus tachycardia, dizziness, and rhythm changes when standing, after eating a meal, and after waking up? Ekg and echocardiogram normal

Hypovolemia: Most likely relative dehydration to some degree. There is enhanced blood flow to the gut after a meal. This means the same blood volume has to supply more to the gut leaving slightly less elsewhere. This can exacerbate borderline dehydration leading to compensatory higher heart rate and occasional symptoms. Try drinking more water as an initial step especially in the summer heat. ...Read more

Can innapropriate sinus tachycardia lead to atrial fibrillation got to go to hospital monday for ECG my heart rhythm gone from normal to abnormal?

Can innapropriate sinus tachycardia lead to atrial fibrillation got to go to hospital monday for ECG my heart rhythm gone from normal to abnormal?

Not usually: This would be a bit odd. Usually fibrillation is the result of age, drinking, and diseases which exhaust or stretch out the atria. Inappropriate sinus tach usually doesn't directly result in afib. When it went to "abnormal" are you sure that was to fib? Did they get an ekg? Could well be flutter too, which can occasionally be mistaken for fib. ...Read more

Male 22 laid in bed heart rate 49, sinus rhythem. No symptoms. Average fitness. Any need for treatment? Also has postural orthostatic tachycardia synd

Male 22 laid in bed heart rate 49, sinus rhythem. No symptoms. Average fitness. Any need for treatment? Also has postural orthostatic tachycardia synd

None.: There is nothing abnormal about a resting heart rate of 49/minute when one is lying supine. One with your history should exercise regularly, keep yourself well hydrated and treat only symptoms which might be related to your "pots". ...Read more

Rhythm method while on the birth control pill improve prevention rate?

Yes it will: Oral contraceptive pills provide a very good rate of pregnancy prevention. The rhythm method unfortunately is not as successful. Combining the two where taking the oral contraceptive pills as directed and not having sexual contact midcycle starting approximately day nine of the cycle through day 18 of the cycle will prevent conception even more. ...Read more

Could Supraventricular Ectopic beats be the trigger of Nocturnal Sinus Tacycardia with Normal Rythm I get from time to time while off of Betablockers?

It is unlikely that: Ectopic beats would trigger sinus tachycardia however it is possible that ectopic beats could trigger other forms of supra ventricular tachycardia both relatively slow or fast runs that might mimic sinus tachycardia. Beta blockers would be reasonably effective at suppressing these ectopic rhythms. ...Read more

34 years old I have tachycardia everynight?

Nightly tachycardia: Tachycardia (rapid hear beat) can be part of an expected response to exercise, anxiety, fever and some medications, but nightly tachycardia is likely not normal. Causes can include anemia, over active thyroid, electrical problems in the heart, caffeine intake, stimulant use. Best to see a doctor for examination and appropriate tests. ...Read more

Is normal tachycardia fatal? Which tachycardia is fatal?

It all depends on: Heart rate, but sinus tachycardia rarely goes over 150. Atrial tachycardia is more serious because it can go up to 200, but it usually does not progress to cardiac arrest. Ventricular tachcardia is more serious because it can progress to cardiac arrest in a few seconds. ...Read more

What are the differences between tachycardia & tachyarrhythmia?

Regular vs Abnormal: Both mean rapid heart rate but tachycardia usually refers to the normal rhythm just beating faster than normal (sinus tachycardia). Tachyarrhythmia usually refers to an abnormal and fast heart rhythm such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, supra ventricular tachycardia (SVT) or ventricular tachycardia (VT). ...Read more

Ventricular tachycardia is what?

Ventricular tachycardia is what?

See below: Normal heart rhythm arises in specialized cells within the right atrium called the sinus node and then is propagated over specialized conducting tissue into both ventricles. When an irritable focus in a ventricle begins firing independently repeatedly or in a repetitive loop, initiating it's own renegade rhythm at a rapid rate, it's called ventricular (where it starts) tachycardia (rate >100). ...Read more

Pulse above 80 at rest tachycardia?

60-100 bpm.: Assuming the underlying heart rhythm is normal, a heart rate between 60 and 100 bpm would be considered normal at rest. Would go above 100 temporarily with activity, and may be under 60 at rest in someone who’s athletic. So assuming the underlying heath rhythm is normal, this would not be tachycardia. ...Read more

Upper heart chambers: Fast heart beat due to mechanism arising from the upper chamber of the heart is known as supraventricular tachycardia.

What causes deglutition tachycardia?

What causes deglutition tachycardia?

Not well understood: There are several theories proposed for deglutition tachycardia. One is direct stimulation of the left atrium by the distention of the esophagus as the swallowed substance passes. Another is that swallowing activates part of the autonomic nervous system (sympathetic or parasympathetic) to cause a direct increase in heart rate, or cause premature complexes that initiate rentrant tachycardia. ...Read more
