I've had diagnosed SVT since I was 15, so about 14 years now. I'm travelling in December for my wedding, and we'll be spending two weeks in the Dominican Republic. For years my biggest fear has been having an episode of SVT while travelling as my episodes usually require a 911 call and adenosine to convert. I am in the process of scheduling a catheter ablation, but we're currently unsure if I'll be able to have it done before the trip. I am very, very nervous about being in a spanish-speaking country and having a medical emergency (I don't speak any Spanish and certainly don't know medical terminology in Spanish!).
I was wondering if anyone had any experience having an episode in a country where you don't speak the language and could possibly reassure me or even just share their story. This is keeping me up at night.
