What is supraventricular tachycardia?

A condition affecting the upper chambers of the heart, resulting in abnormally fast heartbeat. This can come and go suddenly, and last from a few minutes to a few days. It occurs when there is a problem in the usual signaling system of the heart and usually not life-threatening, but in rare cases, can lead to cardiac arrest or loss of consciousness. It can affect anyone. Risk factors include: heart or coronary artery defects or disease, emotional or physical stress/fatigue, and existing thyroid problems.
