My wife, Rose, (Dr. Burrows) has SVT and her heart went off…

Customer Question
My wife, Carolyn Rose...

My wife, Carolyn Rose, (Dr. Burrows) has SVT and her heart went off about 45 minutes ago. She took Propanolol and it has slowed her heart rate to around 94 beats a minute

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

Her health is generally fine but she had to go to emergency yesterday and they got her heart back to normal and sent her home.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

In the past she was advised to take another Propanolol and it helped then. She is going through a lot of stress getting her daughter to move out of Carolyn's house and into her own; which the daughter has owned for five months now.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
