Is a supraventricular tachycardia dangerous in pregnancy?

Is a supraventricular tachycardia dangerous in pregnancy?

SVT & pregnancy: Svt, or supraventricular tachycardia can be serious in pregnancy for two reasons. First some of the meds used to treat preterm labor can cause or worsen svt. In addition, episodes of svt can lower blood pressure or cause syncope either of these can be harmful to the fetus. If you have any episodes of tachycardia, see your physician right away. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

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

Atrial ectopic tachycardia vs atrial tachycardia? What's the difference?

Sinoatrial node.: The normal heart rate "pacemaker" center is in the sinoatrial node, a part of the right atrium. Ectopic atrial tachycardia means that the pacemaker region (the part that is setting the heart rate) is in another location, & is acting erratically. Atrial tachycardia implies that it is the sinoatrial node that is acting erratically. They are similar, but the heartbeat starts at different points. ...Read more

14 day loop results states tachycardia up to 140, bradycardia 42 bpm, ventricular ectopic complexes, supra ventricular ectopic complexes and an atrial couplet. Should I be worried?

14 day loop results states tachycardia up to 140, bradycardia 42 bpm, ventricular ectopic complexes, supra ventricular ectopic complexes and an atrial couplet. Should I be worried?

Arrhythmias: You should be talking to your doctor about the situation to get more information. The rhythms alone don't necessarily imply something 'bad'. On the other hand if you were entirely normal they wouldn't be there. The rest of your condition is what tells you whether you should be worried. Your doctor is best positioned to answer that question. ...Read more

What arrhythmias are associated with an early first beat, erratic beats, tachycardia, dizziness,sob,chest pains, pounding hb, near syncope? Dangerous?

Worrisome....: The symptoms of chest pain, shortness of breath and near syncope are worrisome. Many arrhythmias can cause the symptoms you describe. The best way to diagnose an arrhythmia is with a Holter monitor, which will record your heart continuously for the time prescribed. See your doctor or, if your symptoms are severe, go to the ER for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Is supraventricular tachycardia (svt) in fetus deadly?

Is supraventricular tachycardia (svt) in fetus deadly?

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 more

Are premature ventricular contraction or ectopic heartbeats dangerous to me?

Are premature ventricular contraction or ectopic heartbeats dangerous to me?

PVCs and MI: Premature ventricular contractions mean that there is irritability in the heart muscle and normal heart rhythm which starts from high up in the atria is inturrupted in some beats and those beats are originating in the ventricle.Bot it does not mean that it is directly due to mi.But you can get pvcs with mi.Occasional pvcs are not serious but if it comes from many foci and in runs it can be seriou. ...Read more

Is an irregular heart beat in fetus always fibrillation?

Is an irregular heart beat in fetus always fibrillation?

Fast/slow/none: Assessing the fetal heart is a bit problematic. Since they are isolated inside the bag of waters, we are limited to detecting rate as fast/ slow/ normal or none. Various factors can lead to various rate changes. The fetal heart is usually beating much fast ; 130-160/min are routine. Stress can speed or slow the rate. When checking newborns, I have never had one with fibrillation in 3 decades. ...Read more

48 HR heart monitor results "infrequent ectopy with no atrial ectopics and 0.1% of heart beat being ectopic" please explain in laymans terms?

48 HR heart monitor results "infrequent ectopy with no atrial ectopics and 0.1% of heart beat being ectopic" please explain in laymans terms?

Few extra beats: Ectopy means essentially "extra beats" usually coming earlier than expected in your normal heart rhythm cycle. Atrial ectopics come from the upper part of the heart and are often benign. Ventricular ectopics come from the lower chamber of the heart. A frequency of 0.1% is very low. Continue to monitor with your doctor! ...Read more

Ovarian cyst pregnancy always results to ectopic pregnancy?

Ovarian cyst pregnancy always results to ectopic pregnancy?

No: In all normal pregnancies there is a cyst that develops in one ovary called the corpus luteum cyst. This cyst supports the early pregnancy and goes away on its own. Sometimes a "cyst" seen in or near the ovary does represent an ectopic pregnancy (most often in the fallopian tube". This is often accompanied by pain and bleeding. ...Read more
