I was diagnosed with SVT 5 years ago. On Jan 11 I was admitted to the hospital with SVT after receiving four doses of adenosine. While still in the ER they ran multiple blood tests, which one of them was serum pro-brain natriuretic peptides. My results were 1584 pg/ml (HIGH). My question is would the SVT cause those levels to rise? Is it possible levels could return to normal again? They never discussed heart failure with me during my stay.

Thanks for this question

Yes, anything that causes myocardial strain can cause this.

It would go that high? So does this mean I do not have heart failure?
Cardiologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 years ago

Yes it can

It means I'm not sure. We need an echo to tell if you have CHF
