Fast heart rate (in paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia)
In paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT), the heart suddenly starts racing. This continues for a few minutes and then stops just as abruptly...
The heart is among the first organs to go to work in life and when it stops beating this usually marks the end of life. In a lifetime, the heart beats countless times and pumps millions of liters of blood through the blood vessels. This circulatory system works relentlessly – and needs surprisingly little to be kept healthy.
