atrial flutter








The flu

last august my mother got the flew, 2 days later she gave it to me. I felt so nauseated for a week, went to the toilet nearly passed out. then experienced a weird heart rhythm, thought it was SVT. kept starting and stopping, so went to the hospital they gave me an ecg and said it was atrial flutter. was going at 150bpm, so they put electrolytes/potassium in me they said I had a 0 level of electrolytes/potassium. gave me a small dose of metoprolol stopped the atrial flutter within an hour. of course still get my SVT, but the flutter was real scary!

so be careful when you get the flu. it nearly got me!
