LONG QT SYNDROME
Long QT Syndrome is a rare, inherited heart related ailment that is characterized by a change in the heartbeat causing usually fast and chaotic heartbeats. The sudden rapid heartbeats can cause seizures and in some cases, the rapid heartbeat can be for an extended duration which can be fatal. People with this condition generally show no symptoms other than fainting and seizures.
HOW IS LONG QT SYNDROME DIAGNOSED?
The various tests included are:
ECG: repeated ECG recordings or other tests, such as an exercise ECG.
Genetic testing: It can sometimes identify carriers of LQTS, but it’s limited as 3 in every 10 people diagnosed with LQTS do not have the mutated genes that cause it.
HOW IS LONG QT SYNDROME TREATED?
Medications such as fish oil supplements and beta blockers can help to prevent the heart for beating too fast. Devices such as a pacemaker or an implantable cardioverter defibrillator can help to control the beating of the heart. For patients with mild symptoms of this disorder lifestyle changes would be advised.
