sinus rhythm. no pauses. infrequent ventricular ectopics. very frequent supaventricular ectopics 5 runs of atrial tachycardia, my question is dose this sound ok we have been told there is nothing to worry about and to just go to hospital if he passes out thanks for your time
Without evaluating your son, I cannot say eactly what is going on with him. As well, I would need to review the Holter monitor (and not just the report). Therefore, my recommendation is that he be evaluated by a pediatric cardiologist fully, including a complete history, examination, and review of the Holter monitor before deciding that there is nothing to worry about or not.
thank you i will get him to see a pediatric cardiologist. This part of the report was look at by a cardiologist and this is what he wrote (sinus rhythm. no pauses. infrequent ventricular ectopics. very frequent supaventricular ectopics 5 runs of atrial tachycardia) but then the doctor said it was all ok but thank you for your advice and i will be taking him to see a pediatric cardiologist I still just feel a little uneasy about this and he is still having dizzy spells
