Why does he lose consciousness after exhibiting tachycardia?


Mr. Novak is brought into the ER of a hospital suffering from cardiac arrhythmias. In the ER he begins to exhibit tachycardia and as a result loses consciousness. His anxious wife asks why he has lost consciousness. What would you tell her?
----------

It is possible for the heart to beat fast enough that it becomes an ineffective pump. There is not a sufficient amount of blood pumped to supply oxygen to the brain and the patient loses consciousness. This is a medical emergency.

You should consider answering your own homework questions instead of using Yahoo. :)  (+ info)

Is there an underlying reason for Tachycardia?


I have mild tachycardia (rapid heart rate) and everyone keeps telling me that that its just normal and that there is nothing to worry about. All my tests have come back fine: Blood tests, EKG, Echocardiogram. Is it possible to have Tachycardia without any underlying cause? Can your heart rate just naturally beat at a more rapid pace?
----------

Probably. A friend of a friend of mine has a resting heart rate around 95bpm. And this kid runs marathons. He's essentially in perfect shape, eats a great diet, no problems. He's been to a bunch of doctors and cardiologists, and so far they haven't found a single thing wrong. Other than his heart rate, there's nothing out of the ordinary. Never had any problems.

I can't provide a source to prove it, but I can't see why that couldn't be OK. Remember, 'normal' is just the centre of a bell curve; statistically, the healthy average person. Stands to reason that some people will be just fine at the outer edges.  (+ info)

What are the symptoms of familial paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia?


What are the symptoms and what are some potential cures, if any?
----------

It is a genetic seizure disorder, characterised by sudden movements when changing position; or being startled by loud noises and suddenly shaking one hands. Such as rising from a chair your leg will shake/spasm.

It is treated with seizure medications such as carbamazepine or phenytoin.  (+ info)

What's the difference between paroxysmal arrhythmia and atrial fibrillation?


I've done some research on both of these but they just seem the same to me. What's the difference? Which is worse? How do you treat them? Are either caused genetically?
----------

A paroxysmal arrhythmia is just any kind of arrhythmia that comes and goes--atrial fibrillation can be paroxysmal. Atrial fibrillation is a specific arrhythmia where your atria don't contract, they just sort of quiver. Atrial fibrillation can be treated with medication, ablation, or surgery. Sometimes it requires anticoagulation as well.  (+ info)

Has acupunture helped with heart tachycardia or arrhythmia?


I understand that acupunture can help lots of problems.

What about tachycardia that began for no apparent reason

3 months after heart valve surgery, never having had any fast heart rate in 50 years.

Any link between inappropriate sinus tachycardia and sudden cardiac arrest?


Does having inappropriate sinus tachycardia make you any more likely to have a sudden cardiac arrest?
Does taking metoprolol succinate for the tachycardia help prevent sudden cardiac arrest at all?
----------

Unfortunately, yes.

What happens when you go suddenly super-tachycardic is that your left ventricle is trying to pump so fast, that it's not really opening up all the way to allow the blood to flow through. This causes less blood to be moved, and cardiac arrest to occure.

Keep in mind, when we are talking about cardiac arrest from tachycardia, you're heart is beating in excess of 200beat per minute. Normal resting heart rate is 60-80bpm.  (+ info)

What does EEG report "Dominance of responsive 10 to 11 cps alpha rhythm. No focal or paroxysmal changes" mean?


My bf had a EEG test. The report says "Dominance of responsive 10 to 11 cps alpha rhythm. No focal or paroxysmal changes are recorded." What does this mean?

He is probably suffering from Passive aggressive personality disorder. He has all the symptoms (I know it well).

Please help me. Thank you.

the EEG was normal  (+ info)

Does anyone else get tachycardia after meals?


For the past couple of months, I have found that I get tachycardia and some PVC's either during or after a meal.
I haven't seen a doctor about this. Has anyone else experienced this and been to a physician to learn about potential causes?
----------

And I thought I was the only one to have this...

I often get tachycardia and palpitations after meals.

I have GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). GERD can contribute to tachycardia and irregular heartbeats. The explanation is rather long, but involves acid stimulation of esophageal nerves, which causes esophageal spasm. You can have GERD without significant indigestion, heartburn, or pain; in fact, some sufferers only have occasional hoarseness. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/gerd/DS00967

How do I know the tachycardia and palpitations aren't cardiac related? A cardiologist did an echocardiogram and attached a Holter Monitor (a 24-hour EKG) to me and found no disease or damage.

A hiatal hernia http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hiatal-hernia/DS00099 may also cause similar symptoms.

You may want to see your physician to discuss GERD, hiatal hernia, and cardiopathy (heart problems). You don't mention your age, weight, fitness level, medications, and health problems, all of which can affect what's happening, but for symptoms like yours you shouldn't wait more than 3 weeks before seeking medical advice.  (+ info)

can over eating or eating a very large amount of food at one time cause tachycardia?


i have pots (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. but it seems to be made much much worse after eating a large amount. is overeating or eating a very large amount at a single sitting be linked to this tachycardia??
currently my heart rate is 136 and my blood pressure is 145/101 a ate a large dinner about 45 mins ago.
----------

You might want to consider not eating large meals. Tachycardia and elevated BP cause heart attacks.  (+ info)
