FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is a rapid abnormal heart rhythm that affects approximately two million people in the United States. Symptoms can include: palpitations, chest pain, light headedness, and dizziness.

Dr. Steinberg’s contribution to the SVT Pioneers Report explains how patients can self-manage their SVT symptoms - detailed in his article “Home-Based Solutions for SVT Management”.
Speaking about the new SVT educational series, Founder & CEO of Arrhythmia Alliance, Trudie Lobban MBE, says: "We are pleased to be able to offer these important educational events for people living with SVT. This is an incredible opportunity to watch, listen, learn, and ask questions from the experts such as Dr. Benjamin Steinberg about SVT causes, diagnosis, management, and treatment; and is a first of its kind for those impacted by SVT.

Dr. Steinberg added: “My colleagues and I are honored to partner with Arrhythmia Alliance to host a virtual event to raise greater awareness of “Living with SVT” for patients, their caregivers, and healthcare practitioners.
