My youngest sister has a heart condition, and she occasionally has SVT attacks (here is a link if you want to read about it: Supraventricular Tachycardia). They have never been caught on a machine because it is so hard to get from the farm she lives on to the hospital in time, so there was no way of figuring out how to deal with them. On Wednesday, she had one and was taken from school by ambulance to the hospital. They finally caught it on an ECG machine, and her heart rate was 236 bpm.

Basically, what the doctors do know, is that if an adult had this condition, when an attack happened, their heart would explode. My sister is 15.

My sister and her foster parents are meeting with a specialist on Monday. We are really hoping that they finally figure this out. If you could spare some thoughts and prayers, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

I'm so sorry, I will keep her, you and your family in thoughts. I hope they can figure out what's going on. Let us know what they say on Monday.

I hope they can work something out to help her asap.

I have paroxysmal atrial tachycardia which is a more benign version of SVT. I get the racing heart which makes me feel faint and just awful, but it's not life threatening to me. So I really feel for your sister but I'm glad it's been caught on an ECG now and hopefully they can do some tests and find a plan of attack for her.
