How long is too long for superventricular

I get it a couple times a day or less. Ranging from 5 minutes to 30 with it relaxing to 100 sometimes and max 140 but mostly 120-130. Resting heart rate if around 80-100

  1. I would not want to advise you on how much supraventricular tachycardia is too much. But repeated runs are not good and could lead to a dangerous arrhythmia. Many HF patients like myself have an implanted cardiac defibrillator (ICD), which is designed to fire if I should go into a deadly arrhythmia. Again, SVT = not good. Best to not delay and speak with your physician.

    1. Hopefully, this isn’t occurring on a daily basis and you have discussed your symptoms with your cardiologists. In my personal experience, I have been in superventricular tachycardia numerous times, too many to count. My heart ranged anywhere between 120 bpm to 300 bpm. At the time, I was in my mid twenties and I didn’t want to have a pacemaker, so I prolonged seeing the cardiologist, which was the worst thing I could have done. To be honest with you, if you are having any symptoms like this, it’s best to see a cardiologist. I would never want you to experience an even higher heart or even worse than that.
