I had a 2 week ECG via a Zio patch. The results are that during the study I had two runs of supraventricular tachycardia. I have frequent heart palpitations that make me feel light headed, and though I have never actually passed out before sometimes it feels like a 'closing in' feeling - kind of like pre-tunnel vision. There are other symptoms I have that include frequent/chronic angina.

I also have an ascending aortic aneurysm and pulmonary aneurysm that are being monitored by my cardiologist.

My question is whether or not I should be concerned about the SVT runs; one resulted in an HR of 164, and the longer run resulted in 110. I am only moderately active as I work a desk job, though I am trying to get better with exercising.

Should I be concerned about this?

Shasari:

As Happy Turtle stated, I would go with what advice your cardiologist has given you. My HR was 220 for a number of hours before I went to the emergency room, and it can go as high as 300 during an SVT. Your HR can also be effected by stress, o-t-c cold medications, even thyroid conditions.

Good luck,

Sharon
