In brief: Yes
Anything that can cause pain, anxiety and as a result increase adrenaline release can trigger an episode of svt.
Some people are more prone to this than others and an individual can have a lot of variability in there own susceptibility. So you can have instances where you have the svt and have the same circumstances on another occaission fail to produce the same result.
