  • Holiday Heart Syndrome

    During an episode, you may experience symptoms such as: a pounding or fluttering heartbeat ( heart palpitations ) feeling light-headed or dizzy shortness of breath chest pain[] This rapid heart rate is called supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) .[]

  • Coronary Artery Disease

    Transient ST-segment depression and chest pain detected during ambulatory monitoring were usually associated with tachycardia ( Figure 3 ).[] It was noted that 20% of the episodes of ST-segment depression occurred with a heart rate Figure 3.[]

  • Cardiac Asthma

    During the acute episode, the patient may experience chest pain, usually caused by myocardial ischemia.[] Tachycardia diminishes the duration of the diastole and subsequently coronary filling time, also causing chest pain.[]

  • Preterm Labor

    Recurrent episodes of supra-ventricular tachycardia were refractory to medical therapy and required repeated direct current cardioversion.[] Administration of disopyramide led to the initiation of painful uterine contractions and accidental hemorrhage.[] A 26-year-old woman, gravida 2, para 1, was diagnosed as having Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome during the third trimester of pregnancy.[]

  • Bradyarrhythmia

    Other symptoms experienced during an episode of SVT include dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain, and light-headedness.[] Supraventricular tachycardias are generally not life-threatening, but their symptoms can be dehabilitating to patients.[]

  • Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia

    Abstract During episodes of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT), electrocardiograms frequently show ST-segment depressions, and patients may experience typical[] The sister, a 24-year-old woman, had intermittent episodes of palpitation accompanied by chest pain for 2 years.[] […] chest pain prompting invasive coronary angiography.[]

  • Variant Angina Pectoris

    Ventricular premature beats, ventricular tachycardia and one episode of ventricular fibrillation were recorded.[] She had the anginal type of discomfort spontaneously at rest or during sleep, but not with exertion; neither was the pain initially provoked by exercise testing.[]

  • Lown-Ganong-Levine Syndrome

    In cases of underlying structural heart disease or coronary artery disease, episodes of tachycardia may induce cardiac stress and produce symptoms of chest pain or possibly[] Physical Findings are normal except during tachycardic episodes; cardiovascular examination may then reveal a rapid heart rate.[]
