Telemetry Vs Heart Monitor
24hr holter moniter showed heart rate 45-170. 1% were supraventricular paced beats. Is this normal or SVT?
Probably within norm: you need to discuss with your doctor about this holter report -- ...Read more
Atria or ventricles: Supra ventricular tachycardia: from upper chambers of the heart, is due to irritability (increased automaticity) or a short circuit (reentry), heart is usually structurally normal. Ventricular tachycardia: from lower chambers of the heart, due to irritability, can occur in normal hearts but is more often seen in hearts with scar tissue or weak hearts and can be life threatening. ...Read more
Ecg , cardiac echo, heart enzyme , chest ct, cardiac angio ct, all ok.Still resting heart pulse 53-62.Increase when move.Exclude cardiac issue?
At the er for chest pain hospital monitor says couplet pvcs amd sv rhythm. What does sv rhythm mean? and are couplet pvcs dangerous?
Not necessarily: SV="supraventricular rhythm" which is normal. PVCs are "extra beats" that sometimes lead to the feeling of a thump or irregular heart beat. By themselves, extra PVCs or couplets of PVCs are not dangerous. Some people get them when they drink caffeine or smoke cigarettes. They aren't an indicator of a heart attack, but if they happen during a heart attack, they can be a sign of impending problem ...Read more
In hosp for asthma on monitr brief ventricular tachycardia, overnight on monitor intermittent periods cardiac ectopy staying another night, concerning?
Always but....: Part of your problem may be from over-stimulation from the beta agonist (brochodilator) use , plus possibly oxygen lack and adverse effects from large dose of steroid given. But any arrhythmia especially ventricular tachycarida is of concern and you need a cardiologic evaluation after your asthma gets under control. ...Read more
ECG : The strip recorder is the printer for the monitor. ...Read more
Not its job: A Holter monitor records the rhythm of your heart, looking for source of palpitations / passing out (syncope) and similar. Heart blockages are detected by stress tests, specialized CT/MRI scans, and cardiac catheterizations--to examine the blood vessels that serve the heart directly. ...Read more
Yes, Sort of... Late: Ecg is a 10 sec. Printed tracing of voltage vs. Time comparing different combinations of 10 surface body locations. Holter commonly only 1 or 2 non-standard ekg leads recorded over ~24 hrs or longer. Since inner wall of heart muscle is most susceptible to ischemic damage, surface tracings rarely show clues (e.g. Qrs widening, altered waveform, arrhythmias) until CAD problems induce enough damage. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Pacemaker: A holter monitor is a device you wear like an ECG that then records your heart beat for 24 hours or longer. If you had a pacemaker implanted previously, the holter monitor would then be able to determine how many of the heart beats originated from your own heart and how many were caused by the pacemaker functioning. ...Read more
Are odd Supraventricular beats on24Hr Holter the same as (or connected to ?)Nonsustained Ventricular Tachycardia <30sec ?
No: Supraventricular is NOT ventricular. There is a significant difference clinically, treatment wise and prognostically for extra beats from the atrium vs. extra from the ventricle. ...Read more
My Holter Monitor showed 1596 Bradycardia events (under 50 bpm) in 48 hours and 2356 pauses between 2.02-2.5 seconds. Lowest Heart rate was 27 .
Talk to cardiology: I am assuming that you have symptomatic bradycardia, and that was the reason you had a Holter study done. Now, I don't know how long your HR stayed at 27, but even 40 is too low. This isn't something that can wait, call your doctor and develop an action plan today. If after hours ask to speak to the on call doc for that office. ...Read more
Yes and No: EKG can show some changes in Q and S waves and ST. Elevation may suggest old myocardial infarction. Hotter monitor is a device that registers heart rhythms/ rate for an extended period of 24-48 hrs. It's main use is to diagnose various types of heart blocks. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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 ›
My heart structurally fine on echo, MRA, ECG, MRI, holter monitors. Is it unlikely my frequent PVCs will turn into Ventricular tachycardia/death?
Unlikely: With a normal heart based on all the studies you have had, PVCs are usually benign and not like to precipitate ventricular tachycardia. The caveat is that you are on diltiazem as well as amitriptyline both of which can affect the heart rhythm. Thus you should continue to have your EKG monitor. All the best to you! ...Read more
