What Is The Difference Between Svt And Psvt
Hi. Im 16 and have psvt(svt) and was wondering is that normal? They gave me vitamins and sent me on my way. Will this hurt my heart? Goes up to 150bpm
Possibly: This may be a sign of an abnormal conduction system in the heart. Sometimes, the ekg will reveal evidence to suggest this but in many cases, the ekg will only show the abnormality during the svt. Sometimes, it is only possible to detect the abnormality by doing provocative procedures, or in the electrophysiology laboratory. It there is an abnormality of the conduction system is may be curable. ...Read more

Can a doctor tell the difference between svt and sinus tachycardia on loop monitor? Heart rate gets up to 180bpm laying in bed
Yes: The way sinus tachycardia looks on an ECG printout or monitor looks much different than SVT and that's how we even distinguish between the two. Have you actually had a discussion with the ordering physician regarding your results or a discussion with a cardiologist so that your questions can be answered in a more comprehensive way? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Similar-different: Both originate with the "pace-maker" in the right atrium. In svt, it leads to a sinus rhythm over 100-140 beats per min (bpm). Atrial flutter is a specific type of svt that causes (by definition) an atrial rate of around 300 bpm. Depending on the electrical conduction of that heart, it will lead to a ventricular rate of some multiple of 300 (150, 100, 75, etc). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
