V Tach Ablation
With and icd and ablation with no success v-tach. Do people still work or is it a death warrant. Please don't sugar coat this please be honest?
Too Complicated: Your question demands individualized answers and isn't terribly well formed. If you mean that a VT ablation was unsuccessful, that's not great but not necessarily fatal either. For patients with prior vt, there's about a 2%/yr chance they need the device, taking all comers. If you're having very frequent vt, get ahold of me and i'll name some places you can go for another attempt w/ top people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
VT vs VF: VT: an organized rhythm arising in the ventricle. VF: a disorganized rhythm with no effective pumping. Depending on various factors, VT may be tolerated for long periods. In some cases, VT is not tolerated or degenerates into VF. VF results in death in a few minutes. ...Read more
I have psoriasis and I'm only 20. I also have had episodes of V Tach. Could there be a link between these two?
I do not know of a: significant association between psoriasis and ventricular tachycardia. Are you certain you were told it is ventricular tachycardia and not supra ventricular tachycardia? Sometimes there is a concern with some of the medications given for psoriasis and provocation of arrhythmias but in the absence of something like long QT syndrome this should not be an issue for you. ...Read more

My dr said I have v-tach, but not the dangerous kind, i only have a spell once in a blue moon, how can it not be danergous ?
Maybe RV v-tach: Without knowing which tests were done and assuming all the appropriate tests done and your rhythm strips were reviewed by an eps dr , rt vent outflow tract VT for the most part is a low risk rythm and can be treated medically. Ablation can also be used for symptomatic pts. ...Read more
The risks are very: low in experienced hands. Published studies would suggest that perforation is less than 0.2% (1 in 500). This is a treatable complication and unlikely to contribute to any long term issues or mortality. This risk is considerably lower than a risk from recurrent VT. ...Read more
I don't feel anxious but my resting heart rate is at about 116 and that's concerning me dearly. Is v-tach a cause?
How can you tell the difference between v-fib or v-tach and asystole or pea with no electrical equipment? Basically, shockable vs nonshockable.
See ACLS: Number one you will not shock on your own unless you are trained. But basics wise, all of the above in all likelihood the person has a sudden death, and has no pulse or BP obtainable except may be early and slower v-tach. Again qualified personnels are the ones who would administer shocks. If someone needs a defib, an implantable one should have been placed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ive been suffering with PVC's
etc on and of for a few years. However I have a structurally normal heart, which is good, can I still go into V-TACH?
Possible but unlikel: It is very unlikely for someone with a structurally normal heart to have VT. Anything is possible, so if you have spells of rapid heart beat and feel like you could pass out, you should have further testing. But in general, it's not something that is considered to be a risk. ...Read more
