Supraventricular tachcardia

M Knippel, G Gibelli, G Bana, F De Alberti, C Ranzi
Three patterns of swallowing-induced supraventricular tachycardia in an asymptomatic young man are described. The patient had no esophageal disease. The electrophysiologic mechanism of arrhythmias remains speculative. Vagal stimulation produced by swallowing appears to cause tachcardias because atropine (1,5 mg iv) prevents their occurrrence.
