Treatment for arterial tachycardia
Author Ольга Кияница
Tachycardia is, in most cases, symptomatic, indicating an increased heartbeat. The development of tachycardia can be associated with various diseases, cardiac and noncardiac.
When reducing or increasing blood pressure, compensatory mechanisms that increase the frequency of heart rate are included.
Long-running tachycardia can be a threat to health and even human life. Especially dangerous is the combination of tachycardia with arterial hypertension, as there is an increased risk of myocardial infarction, stroke and other pathological conditions.

Arterial tachycardia develops for any reason and it is important if possible to eliminate it, then the treatment will be more effective. In particular, the main provocative factors include stress, psychological lability, bad habits, and overweight.With similar states, one must first solve the problem.
The development of the pathology is influenced by various diseases in the form of diabetes mellitus, hyperthyroidism, adrenal tumors, vascular arteriosclerosis, organic heart lesions. Their treatment must be carried out obligatory, otherwise the desired result of recovery will not be achieved.
Medicinal treatment of arterial tachycardia
The method of therapy depends on the type of pathology. When hypertension is complicated by tachycardia, some drugs are prescribed, and in case of hypotonia, others are prescribed.
Treatment of tachycardia with hypertension
The prescribed drugs should regulate the frequency of heart attacks and further reduce the pressure of vessels. This will help to normalize blood pressure while eliminating tachycardia.
Frequently used drugs when combining tachycardia and hypertension:
- Dironot is a vasodilating drug that helps to quickly lower the pressure.
- Corinfar is a blocker of calcium channels, which is able to normalize the cardiac rhythm.
- Enap is appointed to correct cardiac activity.
- NovoKainamide reduces arterial pressure.
Reduces the pressure of valerian, which should be in the first-aid kit of each hypertonic. In addition, the drug helps to cope with insomnia, improves digestion, improves the condition of patients suffering from bronchial asthma or inflammation of the lungs.
Valerian reduces the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, which helps to reduce the frequency of cardiac contractions in vegetative-vascular dystonia.
Treatment of tachycardia with hypotension
The lowered pressure in itself represents a threat to human health, and in combination with an accelerated heartbeat causes even greater fears. In order to stop unsafe pathology, a treatment aimed at relieving the symptoms and increasing the vascular wall tone is being performed. Drugs used for this, for example novocainamide in combination with mesatone, are sold in drugstores without prescription. In spite of this it is better not to use them independently, because loss of consciousness can be provoked.
If the clinical picture is extremely pronounced, and the medical help will not last soon, you can drink a liter of ordinary water (not carbonated!), After which in 15 minutes your well-being will improve.
In some cases, medication is ineffective, then electrical cardioversion is used. In particular, for this procedure indications are the development of shock, collapse, pulmonary edema, cardiac asthma.
Treatment of arterial tachycardia by folk remedies
Popular methods of treatment, like many pharmacological preparations, help to reduce the severity of the clinic, while the cause of the rapid heart beat is not eliminated. It is also important to consider the fact that many folk remedies can only be used under normal pressure, so not all recipes can be used in arterial tachycardia.
Normalize heart rhythm leaves of raspberry, chamomile, melissa. These plants are often combined with peppermint, wild horsetail, honeysuckle, which help to reduce the pressure.
It is important to know that cooked infusions of herbs should be used fresh, then their benefit is greatest.
Any treatment should be agreed with the attending physician, especially if the tachycardia is combined with low or high pressure. As a rule, the cause of the disease is firstly determined and its treatment is performed, after which symptomatic drugs are added. In any case, improving your well-being helps eliminate stress, bad habits and other predisposing factors.
