Re: Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia

At what point dose tachycardia become a concern?  When is it time to go to the Dr or ER.  e.g. 160bpm or more.  What treatment options are there?

Dear dolphin
It depends on the circumstances. If your heart rate is jumping up to 160 while you are sitting around not doing anything, then it is time to go to the ER. If your heart rate goes to 160 with exercise, that can be quite appropriate. The diagnosis of true inappropriate sinus tachycardia is difficult to make. If it is being considered, you should be evaluated by a cardiac electrophysiologist. You can be treated with either medications or an ablation procedure, depending on the specifics.
I hope this has been useful. Feel free to write back with further questions. Good luck.
Information provided here is of a general nature.  Specific diagnoses and treatments can only be made by your doctor.  If you would like to be seen at the Cleveland Clinic, please call 1-800-CCF-CARE for an appointment with a cardiologist at Desk F15.

I have seen a cardiac electrophysiologist but I get the feeling that I'm wasting his time.  I'm told that I have Inappropriate sinus tachycardia and do take Corgard.  My primary Dr thought that ablation was too new to try.  Do you have any info on ablation and Inappropriate sinus tachycardia?  Do you also have any research info on Inappropriate sinus tachycardia?  If you can't give me any  info or don't have time I understand.  Thank you very much for the help!!
