This talk was recorded live on the second day at DFTB17 in Brisbane.

Take a look at this ECG…

Does it fill you with fear and trepidation? I am sure that many of you recognise the underlying rhythm. It is a supraventricular tachycardia. Great – the first step is recognizing it. The harder part is treating it. Donovan Dwyer will make you feel a little more comfortable with the idea of dunking small children in ice cold water, amongst other things.

You can listen to this talk as you walk to work on any device that supports podcasts.

So, sit back and watch the talk.

Of course other pharmacological agents are available. Listen to Casey Parker and Justin Morgenstern go into a little bit of a deeper dive on the literature regarding calcium channel blockers in paediatric SVT or hear Cliff Reid and the RAGErs give their take
