AVRT is a heart problem related to the heart rhythm that makes your heartbeat too fast. This usually happens because of an extra connection between the upper and lower chamber of the heart. AVRT can mostly be seen in teenagers and younger kids. This is basically because of the unnecessary tissue in the heart. The symptoms that can be noticed are palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath, or losing consciousness (fainting). For irregular fast heart rhythm, you must visit your doctor. Excess use of caffeine can be the major reason for fast rhythm. The doctor may recommend surgery depending on the seriousness of the problem. AVRT becomes dangerous if your fast heart rate doesn't stop on its own, you should get help.
