Left sided chest pain
along with tachycardia requires a detailed evaluation.
Also to be noted is the history of heart disease
in the family.
People with history of asthma on broncho-dilator inhalers also suffer from drug induced tachycardia
Investigations suggested are:
1.ECG: 12 lead and a rhythm strip.
2.Blood tests: Complete blood count
, Random blood sugar,
Serum electrolytes: sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium
Thyroid function test
3. Chest X- ray
The main reason behind getting these tests done is that in cases of sinus tachycardia
we do not treat the tachycardia but treat the cause.
Once the investigations are done then only we can plan the appropriate line of management.
