I am the parent of a 2 year old SVT patient. This is something that actually started at 32 weeks gestation. She was delivered via c-section at 34 weeks because doctors could not get her heart to convert in utero. We were averaging an ER trip about every 3 months - adenosine to convert, cardio converted 3 times. I think we have finally found a drug combo that works for her. She went 6 months without an event!! I think we didn't increase her dosage soon enough, which caused her last break through. She is on weighted increases, gain x lbs increase meds.
Now that she is getting older we might be able to try some converting measures at home before heading to the ER. So, I would like to know what are some ways you are able to convert yourself. Ice does not work, and personally I think that way is awful! We are not quite ready for blowing through a straw or bearing down. But, I would like to k ow other options worth trying.
I would also like to know how some of these medications make you feel. She's 2 - not quite able to tell me how her meds make her feel. We see our cardiologist every 3 months. She takes atenolol and flecainide every day. She will most likely have an ablation when she reaches 9 or 10, so beta blockers are our reality for awhile.
