PSVT is characterized by episodic attacks of abnormally increased heart rate. It can appear and disappear suddenly in between the heart rate is normal. This can affect an individual of any age, either be young adult or elderly. PSVT can affect even the people who do not have any other heart disease. Abnormal heartbeat is the result of a disturbance in the electrical pathway through which electrical signals are sent to the heart in order to contract. These episodic disturbances in heart rate can last from few minutes to several hours. It can interfere with the normal functioning of the heart in some cases. In PSVT heart rate can ranges up to 250 beats per minute. It can cause several symptoms but it is not life-threatening.

In modern practice, doctors prescribe anti-arrhythmic medications along with carotid sinus massage and many other specific procedures. This treatment does not give permanent relief and the condition can return. Most of the medicines given have many side-effects as well.


According to Ayurveda cause of abnormal heart rate is 'Hridroga', i.e. heart disease. There are three energies or doshas, i.e. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha Dosha. Imbalance of any of the dosha results in disease. In case of abnormal heart rate or arrhythmia, the cause may be an aggravation of the Pitta dosha which causes an increase in heart rate, vitiation of Vata dosha which results in irregular heartbeat and aggravation of Kapha dosha which causes a decrease in normal heart rate.
