Supraventricular Tachycardia And Mold
Holter showed pacs, sinus tachycardia, sinus arrhythmia. Cardiologist says other than the tachy otherwise normal. Sinus arrhythmia/pacs are normal?
Yes: Especially in young patients.Get a more detailed answer ›
No definite rules...: Can differentiate these 2 arrhythmia types, although ventricular tachycardia generally causes more severe symptoms such as chest pain, fainting and even a cardiac arrest. Atrial tachycardia almost never causes cardiac arrest, although can be felt as palpitations with lightheadedness or difficulty breathing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What would cause fast heart rate and pvcs while drinking? Ii have a history of pvcs and sinus tachycardia.
Atrial Fibrillation: Atrial fibrillation is disorganized heart muscle activity (looks like quivering) of the upper chambers of the heart. The result is that the bottom chamber doesn't get it's usual rhythmic electrical stimulus and it squeezes after slowly filling for longer than it usually takes. This feels like fluttering with strong beats in between. You need medical attention -- can be dangerous. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Everything: Svt arises in the atria (the upper chambers) and VT arises in the ventricles (lower chambers). Svt often occurs in otherwise healthy hearts and is annoying but only rarely serious. Vt usually arises in diseased hearts, can be serious, and sometimes is life-threatening. Vt in the setting of a heart attack or acute coronary syndrome is very dangerous. ...Read more
SVT and MAT: Mat is a kind of svt. Usually mat implies significant cardiac or pulmonary pathology. Svt can happen in less abnormal hearts. ...Read more
See below: Sinus tachy with artifact is a normal but fast rhythm (>100) with externally caused variations in the appearance of the tracing caused by body movement, poor electrode contact or external electrical interference. Sin. tachycardia with PVC is normal but fast rhythm (rhythm >100), & a premature ventricular contraction (PVC), which is an abnormal early heart beat originating in one of the ventricles. ...Read more
Probably yes: I'm not sure what you mean by "inappropriate" sinus tachycardia, since there's usually some underlying reason (like fever, anxiety, anemia, overactive thyroid, poor heart function, etc), but sinus tachycardia is different from and can happen at different times to the same patient with paroxysmal atrial tachy (where the heartbeat is suddenly generated by an abnormal area of the atrium ). ...Read more
It depends: Whether supraventricular tachycardia (svt) causes problems in a fetus depends on how often and for how long the fetus remains in svt, and on the rate of the svt (how fast). Typically, if a fetus is having problems with svt, a fetal cardiac ultrasound will detect that the heart function is declining and there may be evidence for abnormal fluid collections (so called non-immune hydrops). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Halter monitor results say sinus bradycardia to sinus tachycardia with sinus arrhythmia. Should I be concerned?
Pvcs and sinus tachycardia. Feel short of breath and faint and chest pain daily .What can be the cause of sinus tachycardia?
Tachycardia: Could be any of several causes such as anemia, dehydration or even too much caffeine. PVC's are common and although you feel bad they usually are not a bad sign. Some of this may be stress related or pain related. If your evaluation has been negative then try drinking more water and eliminate caffeine from your diet. Also follow with your regular physician. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: Sinus tachycardia is the normal fast heart rate that results from a stressful situation, physically or emotionally (running, being upset, having fever, etc...). Svt is an arrhythmia that usually requires abnormalities of the electrical conduction system of the heart, and if frequent and troubling needs directed treatment. Sinus tachycardia does not require treatment of its own usually. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Neither: Neither is worse, both require treatment when they cause symptoms. ...Read more
Ekg- extremely short pr interval, delta wave, & many bouts of sinus tachycardia 150 bpm+ but no svt. Is that enough for WPW diagnosis?
No not enough: As electrophysiology would be needed to say for sure...Talk to an electrophysiologist. ...Read more
Whats the difference of preexcitation and a premature beat? And r premature beats from atria dangerous together with sinus tachycardia?
Pre excitation: Preexcitation syndrome is due to the presence of abnormal accessary conduction pathway between atrium and ventricle. It could lead to uncontrolled cardiac arrthmia with rapid heart beat. Premature beats from atrium are more benign and not dangerous like preexcitation. The drugs that we use for symptomatic premature beats are contraindicated for preexcitation. ...Read more
Racing heart( 160) sweaty palms, shaking. Panic attack or SVT? ER doc said EKG strip showed Sinus Tachy not SVT, even at that high of rate
Would a run on non-sustained ventricular tachycardia of 4 beats cause a compensatory pause after?
Yes: But more important is looking for the reason you may have non-sustained VT. This would require a detailed evaluation by your physician. ...Read more
