Do you Experience Episodes of Sudden, Rapid Heartbeats?

Clinical Trials May Be An Option for You!

Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia (PSVT) is an abnormality in the heart rhythm which occurs due to issues in the electrical conductivity of the heart. Supraventricular tachycardia is another name for it. It is more prevalent in young people, particularly women. Despite the fact that PSVT does not appear to cause major long-term health problems, you should nonetheless take it seriously as these symptoms might indicate the presence of underlying health problems.

Revive Research Institute is conducting Clinical Research Trials to find a novel treatment for Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia that may help manage your symptoms so that you could live a healthier life!

You may be able to participate if you:

  • Are above the age of 18 years
  • Have been diagnosed with Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia
  • Can comply with the study procedures

*Additional Criteria may apply

Be a part of our clinical trial and let our certified and LICENSED physicians take care of your heart and health needs and, answer any questions you may have about the research.

*If you qualify and decide to participate, you will receive study-related care free of cost to both you and your insurance.

About Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia (PSVT) Study

You’ve been invited to take part in a clinical research study. The goal of this study is to see if the experimental drug in the form of nasal spray can be used to treat PSVT episodes in a safe and timely manner. PSVT is a condition in which your heart beats substantially quicker than it should during periods of high exercise or stress. Up to 3000 individuals with the condition may participate.

You can continue in the study for as long as you like until after you’ve successfully treated four episodes. If you choose to participate in this research, you will have a cardiac heart monitor placed on your chest to record your heart’s electrical activity and an experimental medicine will be administered to see if it safely ends a PSVT episode. You’ll be asked questions regarding your PSVT when you first join the research, and then again every month after each episode. To see the study doctor, you will need to attend the clinic 3 to 6 times and they will collect your blood for testing to track your health status.

Your involvement is entirely your choice. We urge that you ask as many questions as you need to understand why the research is being done and what is involved, before giving your consent.

*All study drug procedures are provided at no cost to the participants. Participants who match the study’s eligibility criteria will also be reimbursed for their time and travel expenses. You are not required to purchase insurance.

What to except

Revive Research Institute is conducting a Clinical Trial for Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia. PSVT is a condition in which your heart beats much faster than you would expect, with increased activity or stress, from time to time. This is an open label treatment study in which participants are given nasal spray for the treatment of PSVT. Participants can stay in the study until they have been treated for up to 4 PSVT episodes with the study drug.

If you feel like you might be having these episodes, you can fill out your information in the form and our medical representative will contact you. After further pre-screenings, if you qualify for the study you will be asked to sign Informed Consent Form on the screening visit. Once you pass the screening process, you will be given study treatment which is in the form of nasal spray.

The research team will continue to monitor your health throughout the study. You will get your blood tests and study-related care free of cost.

About Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia (PSVT)

PSVT Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia

PSVT Condition

PSVT is an erratic episodic condition, defined by abnormal heart rhythms known as arrhythmias. These irregular beats have a rapid onset and a sudden termination. This occurrence is due to a short circuit rhythm (abnormal electrical pathway) that develops in the upper chambers of the heart causing it to contract rapidly, compromising heart function. A normal heart beat is around 65-100 beats per minute, whereas during a PSVT episode it goes up to 150 to 220 beats per minute.

PSVT Symptoms

The onset of symptoms in a PSVT episode is mostly abrupt and is often confused with a panic attack since both the signs are similar in nature. It manifests as weakness, lightheadedness, shortness of breath, sweating, fluttering or pounding in your chest (palpitations), fainting (syncope) and chest pain.

PSVT episodes can be caused by a multitude of reasons. Some triggers are obvious, consisting of deliberate patterns, while others are much more subtle in nature. The conditions that may put people at risk for PSVT are: a pre-existing heart condition, chronic lung disease, pregnancy, thyroid disease, certain medications, chronic anxiety or stress, alcohol consumption, caffeine use, illicit drug use, and regular smoking.

Over time, untreated and regularly occurring PSVT episodes weaken the heart and may lead to heart failure especially if the person suffering has other diagnosed medical conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is PSVT?

PSVT is an erratic, episodic heart condition, defined by abnormal heart rhythms known as arrhythmias. These irregular beats have a rapid onset and a sudden termination.

2. Is PSVT fatal?

A PSVT episode is not fatal or life threatening but over the course of time and regular occurrence, it tends to weaken the heart. This makes the heart vulnerable to developing cardiac problems and may lead to congestive heart failure or angina.

3. Is it possible to withdraw from the study once I've accepted to take part?

Yes, you may withdraw at any time for any reason. You will not be obligated to continue simply because you signed a consent form. You can notify our team, who will call you for a final check up to ensure that your health is in good order.

4. What happens if I accept to participate in this study?

If you opt to participate in this research, you will be instructed to attach a cardiac device to your chest so the team can monitor your heart’s electrical activity.You will also be given the experimental medicine, in the form of nasal spray, to determine if it safely terminates a PSVT episode.

5. Is it possible that participating in this study may hurt me?

No. You might experience some discomfort such as nasal irritation, runny eyes or nose, and sore throat, but none of these are life-threatening.
