My Sunday evening Tachycardia

My tachycardia was gone in the morning so didn't ring doctor. I'm wearing a two week holter recorder so it should be traced and I can ask about it when I see him. I pressed the green rectangle to record that I had felt it. The holter has to be returned to the hospital on Thursday. I was very very tired on Monday but much better today and have been clearing some debris in the garden. Keep well all of you and thanks for listening.

Sounds like my 'work' AF, on a couple of occasions I got a bad episode overnight Saturday or Sunday when due to return to work, it was beginning to look suspicious but probably linked to work as I had been fine pottering around in my own time at my own pace.


Not my case now as I'm 82. But I know the feeling. When I went back to teaching after my children were at school I always seemed to have a cold or a migraine at the weekend ! Hope you keep well. Terry


Hi Terry

I am not familiar with the halter, is that something that records while you sleep as well?

Best wishes


It's a holter heart monitor supplied by the hospital for me to wear for 14 days ( comes off tomorrow, hurray). It is supplied with a bag of electrolytes so you can take them off an reapply afterwards. Very annoying to wear I found and very itchy. But as I had a tachycardia on Sunday it seems worth while. Apparently lots of people wear them with no results. I haven't had a tachycardia event for a while before this.

Was in persistent AF and had a cardioversion in 2011 after a year, it luckily worked.

Hope this answers your query. Keep well. Terry
