Heart conditions can be dangerous, and it is essential to know the difference between two common heart problems: SVT vs sinus tach. SVT (supraventricular tachycardia) is a condition in which the heart beats too fast for no apparent reason. On the other hand, sinus tach is a condition in which the heart rate increases due to an abnormal rhythm in the sinus node- the heart’s natural pacemaker.
What should I know about this?
So which is more dangerous? It depends on the individual and their overall health conditions. In general, SVT can be more serious as it is often a sign of underlying heart problems. However, sinus tach can also become dangerous due to intense physical activity or stress.
Both conditions require medical attention, which may lead to severe complications such as stroke or heart failure. The good news is that both conditions are treatable with medication or procedures such as ablation therapy. It is essential to speak with your doctor if you experience symptoms such as palpitations or chest pain to determine the best course of treatment for you.
