Is there a way to prevent paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia?
Person's Gender: Female
Person's Age: 50
Hard coughing. Deep regular breathing. Lying down.
Episodes eventually resolve (after several hours), but scary and uncomfortable. I'd like to do something to prevent these infrequent episodes.
Hello from JAHave you seen a cardiologist and had this defined exactly?It depends on exactly the rhythm but in most cases the medical treatment is with beta blockers or calcium channel blockers.These can in some cases indeed prevent attacks.But the medication has to be selected carefully based on exam, EKG and holter monitor.
