What Can I Do To Tell If My Baby Boy Has Svt
I have a 17 yr old boy that has had ablation for SVT 2 years ago. Is it possible that it did not take? He is having fluutering shortness of breath, chest pains high blood pressure, fast heart rate.
Check the heart rate: The heart rate of a baby with SVT is much faster than a normal heart rate, often as high as 300 beats per minute. This rate is faster than you can count. Rather than trying to count the heart rate, i recommend feeling your baby's heart a few times a day to know what is typical. During SVT it is so much faster that most parents can easily tell the difference. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Don't just stop Sotatol without talking to the doctors that care for you and your baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
