NARROW QRS TACHYCARDIA
SVTs from a sinoatrial source:
Inappropriate sinus tachycardia (IST)
Sinoatrial nodal reentrant tachycardia (SNRT)
SVTs from an atrial source:
Ectopic (unifocal) atrial tachycardia (EAT)
Multifocal atrial tachycardia (MAT)
Atrial fibrillation with a rapid ventricular response
Atrial flutter with a rapid ventricular response
Without rapid ventricular response, fibrillation and flutter are usually not
classified as SVT
SVTs from an atrioventricular source (junctional tachycardia):
AVNRT or junctional reciprocating tachycardia (JRT)
Permanent (or persistent) junctional reciprocating tachycardia (PJRT), a
form of JRT which occurs predominantly in infants and children but can
occasionally occur in adults
AV reciprocating tachycardia (AVRT) - visible or concealed (including
Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome)
Junctional ectopic tachycardia (JET)
In brief
Response to carotid sinus massage or adenosine –with
termination of arrhythmia with Pwave –AVNRT with atrial
premature beat .
Tachycardia persists with AV block –AT,AFL,SANRT
Pseudo r ‘ wave in V1 –AVNRT
SHORT RP interval – AVNRT,AVRT
Long RP interval – AT,SANRT,AVNRT atypical
ECG findings
Main Mechanisms and Typical Electrocardiographic Recordings of Supraventricular Tachycard
AVNRT
Presence of a narrow complex tachycardia with regular R-R
intervals and no visible p waves.
P waves are retrograde and are inverted in leads II,III,AVF.
P waves are buried in the QRS complexes –simultaneous
activation of atria and ventricles – most common presentation of
AVNRT –66%.
If not synchronous –pseudo s wave in inferior leads ,pseudo r’
wave in lead V1---30% cases .
P wave may be farther away from QRS complex distorting the
ST segment ---AVNRT ,mostly AVRT.
AV NODAL REENTRANT TACHYCARDIA
AVRT
Typical – RP interval < PR interval
RP interval > 80 milli sec
Atypical –RP interval > PR interval
Concealed bypass tract – only retrograde conduction
Manifest bypass tract– both anterograde and retrograde.
Electrical alternans –the amplitude of QRS complexes
varies by 5 mm alternatively.
Rate related BBB occuring and the rate of tachycardia
is decreasing –then the bypass tract is on the same side
of the block.
AV REENTRANT TACHYCARDIA
WPW syndrome
Two types
Orthodromic
Antidromic
Antidromic is wide complex tachycardia
In NSR detected by delta wave.
Can ppt into AF and VF on use of AV nodal blockers
MEMBRANE ACTIVE ANTIARRHTYHMIC DRUGS are
safe.
CONCEALED WPW syndrome – no delta wave .less risk
of AF
Orthodromic AVRT
 Short PR interval
 Normal QRS complex
 PSVT
Sinus Tachycardia
Focal Atrial Tachycardia
P wave morphology changes.
PR interval > 0.12 sec .
Second,third degree AV block can occur.
Tachycardia terminates with a qrs complex ..
Right atrial origin– p wave inverted in V1.
If biphasic in V1—initially positive then negative.
Upright in lead AVL
Opposite if of left atrial origin
Superior origin –upright p waves in inferior leads
Inferior origin –p waves are inverted in inferior leads.
Focal atrial tachycardia (LA focus)
Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia
At least three consequtive p waves with different
morphologies with a rate > 100 bpm to be present.
Isoelectric baseline between p waves.
Also called as choatic atrial tachycardia
Mostly seen in COPD ,electrolyte abn,theophylline
Rate usually does not exceed 130-140 bpm.
Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia
SANRTMicroreentrant tachycardia
Usually precipitated and terminated by premature atrial
complexes.
Atrial rate is usually 120-150 bpm.
IART - Large or small reentrant circuit.
AV block can occur.
Junctional tachycardias
Non paroxysmal – accelerated junctional rhythm
Rate < 100 bpm Usually junctional node 40-60 bpm
Paroxysmal or focal junctional tachycardia is rare –
automaticity.
110-250bpm.
P waves may be before or after QRS complex
Infrequent and nonsustained episodes –no treatment
Acute termination of SVT and establish the mechanism of SVT
in case of acute setting.
Long term goal is abolishing the arryhthmia substrate.
Precipitating factors – electrolyte
imbalance,hypoxia,ischemia,hyperthyroidism to be sought
out.

Editor's Notes

  1. Figure 2. Main Mechanisms and Typical Electrocardiographic Recordings of Supraventricular Tachycardia. In patients with atrioventricular (AV) nodal reentrant tachycardia (Panels A and B), the atrioventricular node is functionally divided into two pathways that form the reentrant circuit. In the majority of patients, during this type of tachycardia, antegrade conduction to the ventricle occurs over the slow pathway and retrograde conduction over the fast pathway. The activation of atria and ventricles is synchronous so that the retrograde P wave is buried in the QRS complex, or it may be visible soon after the QRS complex (as pseudo r&apos; in V1 or pseudo s in the inferior leads). Orthodromic AV reentrant tachycardia (Panels A and B) is the most frequent arrhythmia in patients who have an accessory pathway, with antegrade conduction through the AV node, activation of the ventricles, and retrograde conduction through the accessory pathway. Typically, there is a short RP interval, but a long RP interval may be associated with slow-conducting accessory pathways. With the use of adenosine or vagal maneuvers (Panel C), tachycardia often terminates with a retrograde P wave. In the approximately 70 percent of patients with this type of tachycardia who have an obvious accessory pathway, preexcitation may be seen in the ensuing beats; however, it is absent in the approximately 30 percent of patients with a concealed accessory pathway. In antidromic AV reentrant tachycardia (Panels A and B), the activation wave front travels in the opposite direction. On electrocardiography, it is impossible to distinguish antidromic AV reentrant tachycardia from ventricular tachycardia. Atrial tachycardias (Panels A and B) typically have a focal origin (star), and different mechanisms might be involved (reentry within several millimeters, automaticity, and triggered activity). RP intervals are typically long (longer than PR intervals), but this depends on the rate of tachycardia and properties of AV conduction. The PR interval can be prolonged by the use of vagal maneuvers and adenosine (Panel C), which may also produce a transient AV block. A substantial proportion of focal atrial tachycardias are terminated with the use of adenosine. Atrial flutter with 2:1 AV conduction (Panels A and B) may resemble atrial tachycardia or another type of supraventricular tachycardia and can be revealed when vagal maneuvers or adenosine is used (Panel C).

  4. Figure 3. Algorithm for the Short-Term Management of Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT). If the diagnosis of SVT with aberration or SVT with preexcitation is not certain, tachycardia with a wide QRS complex must be considered as an unknown mechanism and treated as such. SVT with preexcitation can be the result of either antidromic atrioventricular reentry or, uncommonly, another type of SVT (e.g., atrial tachycardia) with an accessory pathway that is not critical for the maintenance of the arrhythmia.

Referral to an electrophysiologist should be considered for discussion of the risks and benefits of catheter ablation.
