Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT)
Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) is episodes of rapid heart rate that start in a part of the heart above the ventricles. "Paroxysmal" means from time to time.
My arrhythmia was diagnosed in October 2015. My cardiologist put me on a beta blocker 25 mg daily of metoprolol and 81 mg low dose aspirin. I am doing well. He sent me to an electrophysioloist. He will implant a loop recorder on Tuesday, April 19, 2016. Does anyone else have a loop recorder implanted in their chest?
