i was recently speaking to a very nice patient of mine who struggles with paroxysmal AF, frequent ectopics and SVT. Today he mentioned something which i found very interesting and i thought this would be a good place to find out if anyone has noticed something similar...
He told me that he had noticed a very specific pattern:
He will start off by getting lots of ectopics.. then they would degrade into an episode of full blown SVT or AF and then he would find that after the episode of AF spontaneously stop, everything settles down beautifully for 2-3 days with no ectopics at all. He wanted me to explain it and i do have a theory but i guess it would be useful before i work on this theory to find out if anyone notices this i.e does the heart feel very calm and settled for a few days after a full blown episode of AF?
Id love to hear your views
