Does anyone get plain atrial tachycardia?  I've had A-fib, which is different and doesn't cause an increased pulse.  I had one previous episode of atrial tachycardia that lasted about 24 hours.  I was able to stop it with meditation.  I'm in another episode, now, for about 27 hours. Meditation has worked on this one, yet.  Electrophysiologist doesn't seem overly concerned.  I was wondering what various durations people have experienced?

    I meant meditation on this one has not worked, yet.  My pulse has been hanging at 110-115.

    Hi Dad!! How do you know it is Atrial, they both feel the same Ventrical and Atrial. With my A-fib I have had increased heartbeat which I know many other people get with A-fin too!!Honest, my friends went up in to the 200's with Afib. 3 times and he had to be cardioverted. Did you go to Dr and find our what kind you had.I am just wondering, not doubting you. EP's dont get concerned about much it seems!( but they don't have to feel what we do) Don't let them bully you though. If you feel bad, or uncomfortable,go to see Dr.or hospital. High heart rate is very uncomfortable whether it is dangerous or not.  I have had fast Ventricle and Afib. Hate them both! Take caare . Let us hear back from you!!!Mabel

      I have an implanted defibrillator, which has shocked me out of bad ventricle arrhythmias.  The EP can get a transmission over the phone about what is happening, instantly as well as historically.  He determined from this that it was atrial sourced.  It was not A-fib or A-flutter, which the devise will record.  I've been in A-fib almost 100% for years, with no symptoms.  Recent medicine changes has stopped all A-fib. Your pulse comes from your ventricles.  For me, A-fib doesn't affect the ventricles and pulse, it just fibrillates the atriums. A-flutter can affect the ventricle pulse in a ratio, perhaps two or three to one.  So, if my pulse is 100, the atriums may be going at 200 or 300. My devise shows no A-fib or A-flutter, nor ventricle tachycardia.  The only thing left is atrial driven tachycardia or sinus tachycardia.  My pulse of 110-115 is not substantially into the tachycardia range, so my devise doesn't even consider it an event.  Just wondering if anyone else has had this and how long it has lasted.
