Tachycardia - Treatments

Avoiding caffeine, alcohol, stimulants and quitting smoking can help.

Doctors would normally prescribe oral medications such as beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers to slow down heart rates.

For supraventricular tachycardia, catheter ablation – a non-surgical procedure using radiofrequency energy – is a possible cure.

The doctor may also recommend having an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implanted in your chest, which is a small device that can help to monitor the heartbeat and restore it to a normal heart rhythm.

If the condition is caused by other underlying such as a heart valve disorder, patient will require treatment of that pre-existing condition and may require surgery.
