Is a sinus tachycardia same thing as supraventricular tachycardia?

No. Sinus tachycardia is the normal fast heart rate that results from a stressful situation, physically or emotionally (running, being upset, having fever, etc...). Svt is an arrhythmia that usually requires abnormalities of the electrical conduction system of the heart, and if frequent and troubling needs directed treatment. Sinus tachycardia does not require treatment of its own usually.
No. Sinus tachycardia i a normal physiological increase in heart rate and can happen with exercise , fever etc. Supra ventricular tachycardia is an abnormal rhythm usually caused by short circuits or re- entry.
Not completely. "supra-ventricular" means 'above the ventricle' and the sinus node is indeed above the ventricle, so st is one type of svt. Atrial fibrillation, flutter, ectopic atrial tachycardia all fit this description. Usually when talking about svt (or psvt), we refer to a rhythm coming from another specific source, such as a re-entry loop.

Is a sinus tachycardia the same thing as supraventricular tachycardia?

Depends. Depends on how fast or how slow, the cause for the abnormal rate and whether or not it is causing any symptoms. Both abnormally slow and fast heart beats can cause congestive heart failure and syncope (fainting). Persistent fast heart beats can cause weakness of heart muscle referred to as tachycardia induced cardiomyopathy. Read more...

ECG. The intervals are ok but need to see the ECG - what type of SVT, how long did it last, what was the rate, is it paroxysmal? Did you have an electrocardiogram, holter monitor? What is your history? Read more...

What is supraventricular ectopy? Is it benign? Is this the same as sinus tachycardia?

No. . Supra ventricular ectopy is electrical activity not originating at the sa node. Depending on how often and the number of ectopic sites will determine if it is benign or not. Sinus tach is a rapid hr, generally >100 <150, but the electrical impulse follow the normal pathway of sa node --> av node --> bundle oh hiss. Just faster than normal (60 -100 bpm). Read more...
