Hi everyone, I'm a 24 years old man.
I have approximately one episode per month, BUT they do not occur in winter at all, and rarely in autumn. They do not give me anything but palpitations, abnormally high heart rate and fear. Despite their presence, I travel, cycle, excersise, etc. because doctors say my heart is in a good shape - ECG and echo reveal no abnormalities.
I use vagal maneuvers and beta-blockers for cardioversion. Sometimes I can't stop SVT on my own, so I need an injection of antiarrhythmics - the doctors say if it lasts more that 2 hours I should call an ambulance.
The question is - what to do if another episode occurs in the wild - mountains, forest, remote countryside - anywhere to where the ambulance won't come?
I do not consider RFA, because the episodes are too rare.
