Hello Rajeev and welcome to HCM
I am jr. to Cardiologist and read your mail in detail. It seems that your wife has AF (Atrial Fibrillation
) but needs to be investigated for other reasons also such as reason for dipping of Blood pressure. Investigation you can done are EKG at the time of fast heart beat, Echocardiography
to rule out valvular disease. Kindly give some more detail regarding these type of episodes:
1. Frequency of episode
2. Does it occur any time or related with her anger?
3. Does she fall due to these episode or not?
4. After what time this fast heart rate
stops and what you do to recover from it.
Holter can only detect this rhythm if it occur when holter was applied on her. So their is possibility of missing the rhythm in holter study. Alone EKG at the time of fast heart rate is enough to get to a diagnosis.
Get your EKG done and mail it on Health Care Magic or consult your Qualified Cardiologist near you for further treatment.
