Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

Approximately 570,000 Americans experience symptomatic, sustained supraventricular tachycardias (SVTs). SVTs are associated with impaired quality of life, increased risk of thromboembolism and death. This session describes the prevalence, pathophysiology, risk factors and electrophysiology (EP) treatment modalities for SVT. Case studies provide participants with advanced knowledge regarding nonpharmacological treatment of SVT to achieve optimal patient outcomes.


  • Discuss pathophysiology, prevalence and risks associated with supraventricular tachycardias (SVTs).
  • Explain electrophysiology studies and ablation procedures used to identify and treat SVTs.
  • Identify nursing interventions and management of patients undergoing ablation procedures.
